Dr. Kelsey Ford

Owner & Optometrist

Dr. Kelsey Ford graduated from Pacific University College of Optometry in 2000. In 2003, Dr. Ford moved to Edmonton with her husband Dr. Michael Joljart to start their family. Their son Gibson was born in 2003 and their daughter Sydney joined the family in 2004.

Dr. Ford has been actively seeing patients part-time in the Edmonton area since 2003, but decided to open her own practice in 2012 as a way to better serve the needs of her patients. Answering questions and helping patients understand their exam is a passion of Dr. Ford’s. She is currently taking new patients and welcomes all to her practice.

Dr. Ford is dedicated to keeping your eyes healthy and seeing well – this means staying up to date on current medical trends. She has studied under the OMNI eye services in Chattanooga, Tennessee for advanced eye disease. The rotation included Glaucoma, Cataracts, and Macular Degeneration evaluation.

She is also an avid outdoor enthusiast. You can find her biking, running, or walking around Edmonton and our beautiful river valley.


Dr. Bob Champion

Optometrist

Dr. Bob Champion loves practicing optometry in the neighbourhood that he has considered home for most of his life. He grew up on the south side of Edmonton and represented the Yellowbird community for over 12 years in various community sports. Dr. Champion and his wife Karen have two wonderful young children, Jaxon and Risa.

Prior to graduating with his optometry degree from Pacific University College of Optometry in 2013, Dr. Champion lived in Africa for nearly two years, devoting his time there to volunteering. His volunteer role allowed him to distribute used glasses to those who needed them most. Seeing the impact that providing clear vision to those in need influenced Dr. Champion’s decision to become an optometrist.


Dr. Mike Joljart

Optometrist

Dr. Mike Joljart grew up in Edmonton and graduated from Pacific University in 2000. He focuses his optometry on primary eye care, and has extensive experience working with contact lenses. This includes contact lenses for astigmatism, bifocal contact lenses, and working with patients who have dry eyes. He has also gained a wealth of knowledge seeing patients who are over 65 years of age. This often includes more specific issues such as macular degeneration, cataracts, dry eyes, and other diseases that are more common in the senior population.

Outside of optometry, Dr. Joljart enjoys being outdoors. He especially enjoys biking, ideally in the mountains. He loves to be with his family, which includes his wife Dr. Kelsey Ford, their two great kids, and two cuddly dogs.

Dr. Joljart is currently not seeing patients at Lendrum Eyecare. See him at our sister location, Doctors Eyecare.

I went on a friend's recommendation, and I am so glad I did. They are so helpful, and there is no pressure at all to purchase glasses or frames there, if you are just going for an eye exam.

We were able to find a pair of Tomato Glasses for our son. These glasses fit our son's face and his flat nose bridge very well. The service provided by the optician and the sales representative was fantastic. Our son loves his glasses.

I absolutely love Lendrum Eye Care. Dr. Kelsey Ford is always so amazing with the kids, very professional and thorough. The staff is also amazing; from helping pick new glasses to making minor adjustments to make them fit right. It's been two years that we have been going there and will continue to make Lendrum Eye Care our eye doctor shop!
