Welcome to our web site. Dr. Doug Howes started practicing in Medicine Hat in 1980 and moved to the current location in 1988. Our eye care clinic specializes in caring for all your eye and vision needs. We handle everything from eye exams and hard-to-fit contact lenses, to computer vision problems, specialty lenses, eye inflammations, infections, and pre and post cataract and refractive eye surgery. We have our own on-site lens lab. By staying current with the latest developments in eye care, prescription lenses and advances in contact lens technology our vision center can provide you with the best vision, advice and fit today—and in the years to come. We take pride in building lasting relationships with our patients, which is why we take the time to get to know you, your vision requirements and your lifestyle needs.
