Management of Ocular Diseases
The best care
Our Eye Care Clinic makes it a policy to ensure that all staff members are up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to make your visit as comfortable and effective as possible. As optometric technology changes, it is even more important to select an eye doctor who has all the right optometry qualifications and follows the latest developments in eye care.
Utilizing cutting edge technology, we diagnose and manage diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts with greater precision (check out our advanced technology page!).
Earlier and more precise diagnosis means earlier treatment and better outcomes. We are taking an aggressive approach to diseases that previously had few treatment options. Great advances have been made in the treatment of these diseases.

Cataracts involve the changing of the crystalline lens in the eye. Dr. Kallal likes to call them "the dirty windshield". It is a normal age-related change that usually grows very slowly, but can be seen in babies as well. Preventative measures can be taken to prevent the early onset of cataracts. However, when the cataracts become more advanced, surgery might be the best option. Our office works closely with the best cataract surgeons in the Edmonton area.
The breakdown of the optic nerve which connects the eye to the brain. Glaucoma is associated with higher eye pressure but people with low eye pressure can also get glaucoma! Glaucoma affects your peripheral vision. There are no symptoms, pain or vision loss associated with glaucoma until it is too late! Regular eye exams allow us to prevent this disease from affecting your vision. Tofield Eyecare has a specialized visual field machine and optical coherence tomography required to properly diagnose and treat glaucoma.
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in Canada. Macular degeneration causes changes in your retina leading to a decrease in central vision. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to prevent vision loss from macular degeneration. With our aging population, the number of people with the disease is expected to DOUBLE in the next 25 years.
DIABETIC EYE DISEASE
Diabetes occurs when the body can't produce or properly use insulin, which results in high levels of blood sugar in the body. Diabetes can affect small blood vessels, many of which are found in the eye. Diabetic eye disease can lead to vision loss or even blindness. In some cases, diabetes is first diagnosed by changes seen in your eye!
