Hello! My name is Dr. Maegan Folk and I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the team at Nuvue Optometry! I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Biology, with distinction, at the University of Regina and traveled south of the border to obtain my Doctor of Optometry at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) in 2014. Throughout my years in optometry school I was highly involved in student associations and founded the PCO Private Practice Club. I enjoy getting involved in local groups/associations and look forward to integrating into the Kelowna community.
I come to you with 6 years of experience in treating eye disease, co-managing ocular conditions with local ophthalmologists and providing eye care for people of all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics. I look forward to meeting new people and developing life-long relationships with my patients.
Optometry is a continually changing profession with advances in treatment protocols and technology always at the forefront. I find it necessary to stay up-to-date and to incorporate these advancements and technology into patient care. Some of the technology offered at Nuvue includes the OCT scan which allows us to detect early glaucoma and macular degeneration. We offer retinal photography to check for eye disease and monitor for changes over time. When needed, the front of your eye can be imaged with our anterior segment camera and we can map the curvature of your cornea with the corneal topography which assists in fitting specialty contact lenses and screening for certain eye diseases. Peripheral vision testing for glaucoma, other ocular conditions, or drivers license requirements are available as well as advancements in dry eye treatment. We have your eye health covered, front to back!
Look no further, we are your one stop shop for all of your eye health and vision needs. At every full eye exam your eye alignment/eye teaming will be evaluated, you will be checked for diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, eye cancers, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts. You will then be given an updated eyeglass prescription as well as a contact lens prescription, if desired. We offer a wide array of fashionable and affordable glasses for you to choose from!
I look forward to meeting you, come on in and see the clinic for yourself!
