Kindersley Chamber of Commerce Features Absolutely Eyes

Absolutely Eyes originated as Kindersley Optical, which was owned and operated by Patty Dragseth for 17 years. About a decade ago, Patty decided the business needed a new direction due to the growth in clientele. The business warranted expansion, and she recognized the need for an on-site doctor.

Patty and Dr. Jackie Hagens had established a working relationship and friendship in the early 90s, and this provided a solid foundation to begin a new venture. Patty and Dr. Hagens joined forces in September 2013, and the business was renamed Absolutely Eyes, becoming a full-scope, dispensing optometric practice. They operated at the original location for the next five years, then relocated to a brand-new building at 107 Main Street, where they remain today.

Dr. Hagens studied at the University of Waterloo and graduated with High Honors. With advanced equipment and technology, Dr. Hagens and her associate doctors offer comprehensive eye exams for all ages for visual correction, as well as prevention and early detection of ocular eye disease. This is the key to ensuring optimal eye health and the full potential of visual function. Emergency eye care is also available by either on-site care or telemedicine as the situation dictates.

The team at Absolutely Eyes includes two licensed opticians (Patty & Darla) offering their educated expertise in choosing proper eyewear for quality, fit and fashion, along with recommendations for lenses based on your prescription and individual needs. “Product knowledge and service is number one when purchasing eyewear, sunglasses or contact lenses. Our service is nicely rounded off with our friendly reception and capable pre-test technicians.

At Absolutely Eyes, we pride ourselves in community involvement and have heavily invested in the future of Kindersley. We are members of the Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Merchants Association. We are also supporters of the Kindersley Arts Council, Kindersley Music Festival, Kindersley Athletics, Aqua Centre, Positive Ticketing and various community fundraisers. We have improved the downtown presence with a beautiful new building at the end of main street and have hosted numerous work experience students for those aspiring to a future in the eye care industry or other health fields or professional careers.”

The personal care and atmosphere that you will find at Absolutely Eyes makes it all worthwhile to shop local.
