The eye-bar Concept

eye-bar is a lifestyle optical concept offering personalized modern eye care, attainable eyewear and sunglasses in a fun, comfortable and stylish environment.

The founders of eye-bar, Dr. Amy Bakelaar and Dr. Ross McKenzie, set out to shake-up the optical industry in Sherwood Park and Edmonton with a fun, relaxed and stylish experience. We designed the store to feel more like your favourite hangout than a traditional optical store. Key store design elements include glossy red lacquer doors, chrome stools and impeccable one-to-one service at a casual bar.

More than just great eyewear, eye-bar optometry offers eye exams, contact lenses, laser eye consultations and our doctors are available for eye emergencies from vision loss to red eyes. eye-bar optometry is focused on delivering quality family eye care for all ages, with both children and seniors being welcomed. 

eye-bar believes in the gift of sight;  everyone should see as clearly as possible. This means regular eye exams, the right lenses, a pair of sunglasses and a lot of love for your eyes. To see the eye-bar difference, book your next eye exam with one of our much-loved Sherwood Park optometrists.
