Dr. Jackie Albrecht 

bio_Jackie_Albrecht

Dr. Jackie Albrecht examines her patients with the thoroughness and care that she does her own family. In 1990, she graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science and a Doctor of Optometry degree. She was awarded the Percy Hermant Proficiency Prize, Allergan Contact Lens Award and Academic Excellence in Ocular Pharmacology Award. She has been co-managing laser refractive surgery since 2004.   When she was 21 years of age, she required eye surgery to prevent a retinal detachment and had had absolutely no symptoms.   The need for surgery was detected at a routine eye examination indicating the importance of having your eyes examined regularly.  Dr. Albrecht enjoys seeing patients of all ages for their full eye examinations with special interest in children's eye exams, treating dry eye disease and fitting bifocal contact lenses.

Jackie enjoys camping, skiing and gardening.  In 2017, she tried wake boarding for the first time.  She was the optometric chair for Perth-Huron United Way from 2011-2016.

 

Every day optometrists take pride in helping our patients see clearly and preventing blindness. But today we need your help.

For over 30 years, the Ontario government has refused to formally negotiate with optometrists.

In 1989, the Ontario government paid $39.15 for an eye exam.

In 2021, 32 years later, they pay an average of $44.65.

This amount does not come close to covering the cost (including rent, staff, utilities, equipment, taxes and supplies) to provide an eye exam.

This is not sustainable and yet the Ontario government continues to ignore your care.

They have left optometrists with no choice. If they do not prioritize eye care, as of September 1, 2021, access to eye care for millions of Ontarians will end.
