Optometrist, Sherwood Park

  • Co-founder of eye-bar in Sherwood Park

Dr. Amy Bakelaar is better known simply as Dr. Amy – it’s better suited to her fun personality. Originally from Ontario, Dr. Amy moved to Edmonton on a whim in 1999 and decided to stay because she loved the long summer nights, endless festivals and all the sporting activities.


Patients respect Dr. Amy for her extensive optometric knowledge and her great shoe collection. Plus, Dr. Amy has a big heart: she frequently boards a plane to participate in multidisciplinary medical missions to remote areas such as Bolivia, Jamaica and India and Ecuador. As a result, she has friends from around the world and amazing stories to share.
