What is an Optician? 

Optician’s are health care professionals that in Alberta, complete a two year cooperative learning program. Opticians promote eye health, and work with the public and other optical health professionals to give you the best possible vision outcome. 

Optician’s can assess your lifestyle requirements, such as your hobbies and occupation, to figure out exactly what kind of lenses and frames are best for your unique needs. 

Does Young’s Optical have a Licensed Optician? 


Barb has been with us since 1989 and is also a member of the Alberta College of Opticians and Opticians Association of Canada. She is sincerely dedicated to helping people see their best.
