Welcome to Dr. Jocelyn Radawiec, Joining our Team in Feb. 2018

Getting to Know Dr. Jocelyn Radawiec:

We are proud to announce that Dr. Radawiec will be joining Armstrong & Small as of Feb. 1, 2018. 

Dr. Jocelyn Radawiec1) How did you become interested in optometry?

I was interested in health care as a high school student and was particularly drawn to Optometry because of its origins in medicine and optics. My favourite subjects were Biology and Physics, so it was a natural fit for me.

2) Where did you go to Optometry school?

University of Waterloo

3) What do you like most about the work you do?

The problem-solving! Every patient and every eye is different so there isn’t a “cookie cutter” solution to most problems. It is so gratifying to work hard to help a patient see and/or feel better, especially if they haven’t previously been given the time or attention that they require.

4) Do you have any specialties or aspects of eye care that you are particularly passionate about?

I really do like it all! I think the diversity of patients that Optometrists see is what I actually like the most. The fact that I could help a toddler who is being treated for amblyopia, a teenager who wants to see better with their contact lenses, a 40-something who needs progressives for the first time and treat glaucoma in an elderly patient all in the same day, is an example of the diversity of this profession.

5) What is your favourite piece of optometric technology and why?

Optomap Retinal Imaging because it produces a remarkably wide and clear view of the retina (including the periphery), often without the use of dilating eye drops. It’s such a useful tool in diagnosing many ocular diseases!

6) What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am the proud mom of twin boys who were born in 2013, so most of my spare time is spent with them and my husband. I love riding bikes, working on jigsaw puzzles, building snowmen and reading.

Armstrong & Small Eyecare Centre - COVID-19 Update - March 18, 2020

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to close starting Wednesday, March 18 and we are hoping (depending on the conditions) that we will re-open on Monday, April 6th.

In our attempts to be as socially distant as possible and to protect you, our staff and all of our families, we recommend staying at home and following all of the precautions that have been set out by the city, province and the nation.

If you have specific questions about glasses, contact lenses or any other non-emergency / non-essential items please email us at info@armstrongandsmall.com and we will do our best to accommodate your request. As part of our services, we are happy to provide you the option of having your contact lenses sent directly to your home. If you currently have items on order, we will be in touch with you to make arrangements.

If you are calling about a specific ocular or visual emergency such as new flashes and/or floaters, a loss in vision or a suspected eye infection, please text or call Dr. Luke Small at 204-299-6587 or Dr. Matt Lepage at 204-573-8039 who are both providing on-call emergency services through our clinic. Please do this prior to going to Misericordia or to a walk-in clinic as we attempt to reduce their patient load at this time. Obviously, if you have been recently traveling or are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, they will be able to direct you where to go for the proper care.

Please stay home as much as possible and stay safe.

Thank you from your Armstrong & Small Eyecare Team.
