You will need:

  • your Alberta health care card and photo ID for registration
  • a list of current medications/health concerns
  • all relevant paperwork instructed by your doctor’s office.
  • sunglasses, which will help with the glare and light sensitivity when you leave your appointment if you are dilated


Finding Us

We are located in the Active Treatment Centre located in the main building of the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Registration locations will depend on your surgical procedure, and will be identified on your pre-surgical paperwork.
