A wheat field in Saskatchewan

The Conlon Eye Institute is excited to announce its expansion to Swift Current, Saskatchewan, starting June 1st, 2022.

The practice provides state-of-the-art medical and surgical ophthalmology services, including refractive cataract surgery, LASIK, and eyelid surgery.

They will be taking over the practice of Dr. Malcolm Banks, a respected Swift Current eye care community member.

Unwavering Commitment to Outstanding Eye Care

The Conlon Eye Institute believes every person deserves exceptional eye care, regardless of location. With this conviction, they will introduce a range of the most advanced and innovative developments in eye care technology, including telemedicine solutions, remote diagnostic evaluations, and specialized retinal services.

New Treatments Available

We take great pride in announcing that, in addition to the comprehensive suite of services already mentioned, the esteemed Conlon Eye Institute will provide patients in the region with access to the latest, cutting-edge treatments for various retinal conditions.

Anti-VEGF Injections: The Latest Treatment for Retinal Conditions

Specifically, we are thrilled to offer Anti-VEGF injections, which have proven highly effective in treating age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Advancing Eye Care with Cutting-Edge Treatments

By expanding our range of services to include these specialized treatments, we are taking a significant step towards ensuring that our valued patients have access to the most advanced and innovative options available in eye care.

Zeiss Glaucoma Workplace: Personalized Management Plans for Patients

Specifically, we have implemented the Zeiss Glaucoma Workplace, which allows for a comprehensive analysis of all available imaging data and the development of personalized glaucoma management plans for each patient. 

This innovative tool streamlines diagnosing and treating glaucoma, a common and potentially debilitating condition. 

Zeiss Retina Workplace: Enhanced Diagnosis and Management of AMD

Furthermore, we have also incorporated the Zeiss Retina Workplace into our diagnostic capabilities, which allows us to diagnose better and manage age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss in older adults. 

This cutting-edge tool allows our ophthalmologists to detect and monitor changes in the retina, allowing for early intervention and management of the disease.

Reducing Travel Challenges

Innovative Solutions for Long-Distance Eye Care Services

The Conlon Eye Institute has integrated advanced technological solutions and specialized treatments to minimize patients’ challenges and difficulties when travelling long distances for eye care services. This is particularly beneficial for patients residing in remote or hard-to-reach areas of Saskatchewan, where access to high-quality eye care services may be limited.

Virtual Consultations: Providing Exceptional Retinal Care Services

With virtual consultations, the Conlon Eye Institute can provide exceptional retinal care services to patients without requiring them to travel to their physical location. This is an excellent solution for patients facing geographical or mobility challenges or residing in areas where the nearest eye care specialist is miles away.

Convenient and Efficient Care through Virtual Follow-Up Appointments

The ability to offer virtual consultations and follow-up appointments also enables the Conlon Eye Institute to provide more convenient and efficient care. Patients can receive the care they need without disrupting their work schedules or sacrificing valuable time travelling to appointments. This has made it easier for patients to manage their eye care needs, even living far away from the clinic.

Accessible Eye Care Services for Patients in Remote Areas

By reducing the travel challenges associated with accessing superior eye care services, the Conlon Eye Institute has become an accessible and reliable option for patients residing in remote areas. They can now benefit from the latest advancements in eye surgery and care technology and receive the highest level of care, regardless of location.

Undergoing Renovation Process

The Conlon Eye Institute is undergoing extensive renovation at its 215 Chaplin Street West location in Swift Current.

The primary aim of this process is to deliver an enhanced and modernized eyes-only environment designed to provide comprehensive eye care services that cater to the diverse needs of patients.

High Standards of Patient Satisfaction and Well-Being

In their continuous efforts to ensure a seamless and effortless transition from the esteemed care of Dr. Banks’ staff to their dedicated services, the Conlon Eye Institute is wholly committed to maintaining the highest standards of patient satisfaction and well-being throughout this period of change.
