Mission Statement

At Grande Prairie Eye Care we will provide attentive vision care to every member of your family, from newborn to great-great grandparent, with thorough eye health examinations and excellent eye-wear products. Our goal is to maintain a lifetime of ocular health and optimal vision for those who entrust us with this precious asset. 

Your Family Eye Care Practice

In all things we do, we will seek to use the latest and highest standards of care in a comfortable, relaxing and family atmosphere. Our staff speaks English, Spanish, French, Tagalog, and Hindi, among others.

Our pretest room allows for privacy during the initial eye exam preparation. To assist Dr. Navarrete through her thorough exam, we update your history, gather required information, complete Tonometry and Visual Fields screenings, up to date corneal measurements with our Auto-Refractor and confirm your current prescription to cross reference with the new information gathered during your exam. 

Our contact lens room allows for privacy and a more relaxing contact lens experience.  First time contact lens wearers are nervous enough without being in the middle of a room where everyone can watch.  Take your time, take a deep breath and enjoy the freedom that contact lens wear has to offer!

Children are welcome to play while they wait for their exam, or to keep occupied while Mom and Dad select their own eye-wear.  Our Dispensary carries a variety of frames for daily every day wear to sports and safety eye-wear.  Keeping with today’s fashion trends, we carry Designer eye-wear to the moderate yet still stylish Budget eye-wear.  From Children to Senior, we have something for everyone.  We work with the Alberta Association of Optometrists to provide Kindergarten students with free eye-wear through the “Eye See …. Eye Learn ….” Program and with registered companies for safety eye-wear through the Occupational Vision Care program.

Our On-Site lab allows us to offer same day service on some single vision lenses, as well as the ability to work with your own frames without having to send your glasses away!  If lenses are not in stock, they are ordered in and still processed in our own lab, allowing for quicker delivery to our patients!

Meet Dr. Navarrete

Dr. Navarrete | Optometrist

Dr. Navarrete, your Grande Prairie, and Slave Lake Optometrist, was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia where she attended University of La Salle to earn her Doctor of Optometry degree in 1992.  She worked in  Colombia for 12 years,  before moving 
to Canada. In the spring of 2007 Dr. Navarrete went to the University of Waterloo, Ontario to earn her license as an Optometrist in Canada through the International Optometric Bridging Program. She completed her studies via clinical rotations which included ocular disease, pediatrics, contact lens fitting, primary care and referral care in a tertiary medical centre.

Dr. Navarrete is a member of the Alberta Association of Optometrist, Alberta College of Optometrist and the Canadian Optometric Association. Even with experience of more than 18 years on her side, Dr. Navarrete has not stopped her education.  She continues to research and implement technology available to optometrists throughout Canada in order to provide patients with the eye care they need. Both her practices, Grande Prairie Eye Care and Slave Lake Eye Care, offer to all area residents co-management with Ophthalmologists in Edmonton (Alberta Retinal Consultants, Lasik MD Edmonton, Royal Alexandra Hospital-Regional Eye Centre), Westlock (Doctor Climenhaga) and Grande Prairie in cases of Diabetes, Glaucoma, Cataracts and all eye diseases.

Dr. Navarrete loves to share her free time with her husband, kids and family dogs. Her hobbies include traveling, salsa dancing, and listening to music.
