In 1940, Dr. James Lampard and Dr. Sadie Lampard settled in Red Deer, Alberta to establish Central Alberta’s oldest optometry practice. The Eye Care Centre was built on the tireless efforts of Mr. & Mrs. Lampard, erected on the pillars of exceptional service, ongoing patient care, and community involvement. Those foundations were upheld as one of the Lampard’s five children, Dr. Tom Lampard joined the practice in 1981. Dr. Roger Rudyk and Dr. Jep Lund were added to the team in 1983 and 1987 respectively, as offices were opened in Rimbey and Rocky Mountain House to connect more Central Albertans to reliable eye care.
In 1999 the Red Deer Eye Centre expanded in size and services, changing locations and welcoming Dr. Kevin Hesterman (2000) and Dr. Scott Stevenson (2005) as partners. In 2008, Dr. Daryl Berger and Dr. Pamela Syrota were added as associates to the Eye Care family. All of the staff at the three locations remain an essential part of the operation and patient experience. They are proud to have such caring, friendly, and enthusiastic eye care professionals as part of the Eye Care team.
The Eye Care Centre continues to grow and expand without sacrificing any of the principles that built such a strong tie with the community over 75 years ago. As optometric technology evolves, so does the practice, always developing a patient experience that exceeds expectations. They are always ready to welcome new friends to the Eye Care Centre practice at any of the three locations throughout Central Alberta.
