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. Katherine Krol


Dr. Krol was born and raised in Edmonton and is also a Pacific University, College of Optometry alumnus, graduating in 2015. She is very passionate about eye care. Dr. Krol has experience working alongside ophthalmologists in a surgical setting providing pre and post-surgical care. She is currently accepting new patients and provides care to patients of all ages. Dr. Krol practices full scope optometry including the treatment of dry eye, ocular disease, and the fitting of contact lenses.

When out of the office you can often find her in the mountains, out and about with her dog Julep, or trying one of the city’s newest restaurants.

Dr. Mike Joljart


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.

We had an appointment for my two children, which happened to be during their annual open house. Dr Ford was socializing with the guests in the main part of the shop, while my children and I were taken to the eye exam room and were made to wait wait for over 45 minutes past our scheduled appointment to be seen by her. There was no apology given for this. Will not be going back!

Best service I have had for eye and vision care in Edmonton. Dr Ford is an excellent clinician. She has a gentle, engaging demeanor and takes the time to teach about any findings. Front desk staff are very pleasant and helpful. I am an RN and was impressed with the thorough and expert service. Highly recommend.

Dr. Ford and her entire staff are fantastic! From the first greeting, to multiple checks on my eye health by her assistant, to Dr. Ford's examination...everything was professional, relaxed and filled with positivity. I always feel the staff have my health and my eyesight as their first priorities, but they are so friendly and warm that they make me feel like family despite only seeing me every two years. If you want to feel valued and cared-for, have your eyes checked by Dr. Ford and her wonderful clinicians.

I absolutely recommend Lendrum Eyecare! The team here is all so friendly, they make you feel like you're family. I recently had an eye exam with Dr. Ford and cannot say enough good things about her. She is patience, kind and takes her time to explain everything. I also had the pleasure of dealing with Krystyna who help me pick out beautiful frames from their wide collection. She was very knowledgeable and went over and beyond to help me find what I was looking for. And finally the price and service is unbeatable! So happy that I found this place! Will definitely be back. Thank you everyone.

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.

The ladies there are so caring, kind and are so great with kids!! Before I found lendrum, I took my daughter to another optometrist and I was taken advantage of. I was new to the whole thing, so I didn\u2019t really know what was best. They swayed me towards a pair of glasses, used all of the benefits I had for my daughter and the glasses broke the first day. I called about getting them fixed and was told I am on my own. I did some research and found LENDRUM and I paid out of pocket (thanks to the old optometrist) but these glasses are almost indestructible ( Which you need for a toddler). Not only did I get the glasses but 2 pairs of lenses for cheaper than the other place. My daughter had them for a few months and broke the nose piece off, by accident. Thinking I\u2019m outta luck, like the last place, I tried glueing it but it kept coming off. So I called Lendrum and asked if I could order another nosepiece. They didn\u2019t only fix the glasses, they ordered a BRAND NEW pair of glasses for my daughter at no cost to us. I am so thankful I found them!!!! \ud83d\udc4f\ud83c\udffd\ud83d\udc4f\ud83c\udffd\ud83d\udc4f\ud83c\udffd\ud83d\udc4f\ud83c\udffd","open_graph_story":{"id":"2102763353186836"}},{"reviewer":{"id":"1508025269285605","name":"Nadia Rutten","picture":{"data":{"height":120,"is_silhouette":false,"url":"https:\/\/platform-lookaside.fbsbx.com\/platform\/profilepic\/?psid=1508025269285605&height=120&width=120&ext=1585205822&hash=AeRnHAbumh_k4qBR","width":120}}},"created_time":"2017-01-09T01:47:45+0000","rating":5,"recommendation_type":"positive","open_graph_story":{"id":"10154166771491129"}},{"reviewer":{"id":"1544739885585011","name":"Evie Helvi","picture":{"data":{"height":120,"is_silhouette":false,"url":"https:\/\/platform-lookaside.fbsbx.com\/platform\/profilepic\/?psid=1544739885585011&height=120&width=120&ext=1585205822&hash=AeSpg8RbPuXCZK93","width":120}}},"created_time":"2014-07-11T02:16:24+0000","rating":5,"recommendation_type":"positive","open_graph_story":{"id":"10154432562945206"}},{"reviewer":{"id":"1816105771746881","name":"Maryann Shumski","picture":{"data":{"height":120,"is_silhouette":false,"url":"https:\/\/platform-lookaside.fbsbx.com\/platform\/profilepic\/?psid=1816105771746881&height=120&width=120&ext=1585205822&hash=AeTmDyBHu1Ee1u1V","width":120}}},"created_time":"2014-02-06T08:12:43+0000","rating":5,"recommendation_type":"positive","open_graph_story":{"id":"213928778810748"}},{"reviewer":{"id":"2167967996593013","name":"Joelle White Brennan","picture":{"data":{"height":120,"is_silhouette":false,"url":"https:\/\/platform-lookaside.fbsbx.com\/platform\/profilepic\/?psid=2167967996593013&height=120&width=120&ext=1585205822&hash=AeQpjsb63jLPLMwX","width":120}}},"created_time":"2014-01-06T16:27:31+0000","rating":5,"recommendation_type":"positive","open_graph_story":{"id":"10152111772851075"}}]}
