Welcome to Dolman Eyecare Centre
The eye doctors at Dolman Eyecare Centre believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health. We take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs.
Dr. Howard Dolman and Dr. Kimberly Dolman know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency, and your ability to process visual information seamlessly.
Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. However, even if your vision is clear, it is important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting, treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, or diabetic retinopathy) or even eye surgery such as LASIK or cataract surgery, our eye doctors will provide you with expert care, advice, options and follow up.

It is always a wonderful experience. The support staff is so friendly and helpful and the treatment is truly exceptional. My wife and I would certainly recommend the practice to anybody. The considerable distance we travel each year for this service is well worth the effort. Thank you Dr. Dolman.
It is always a fully satisfying experience and I have great faith in the care I receive. My ophthalmologist discharged me fully back to Dr. Dolman, now that my cataract surgery is complete and for the foreseeable future, which even further fortifies my confidence.

Why do I Need Regular Eye Exam?
While most people schedule regular check-ups with doctors and dentists, many are not aware of the importance of an annual visit to the eye doctor. Regular eye exams can be the key to the early detection and treatment of emerging vision problems, eye diseases, and a number of other health issues. When you come to a New Hamburg optometrist for an eye exam, you will receive comprehensive service designed to find and correct any vision or eye issue. Don’t take good vision for granted, schedule an appointment today!

Q&A with Dr. Dolman | Let Dr. Dolman answer some of your eyecare questions
If your symptoms are more than just an occasional annoyance, we can guide you toward more effective and lasting relief.
Q: Is it true that Dry Eye symptoms seem to be more severe in the winter than in the warmer spring and summer months?
Yes. Our home and workplace tend to have very low humidity during the winter months. And the constant running of the fan in our car to defrost the windows also contributes to dry eye symptoms.
Q: What is the examination like to determine whether someone is suffering from Dry Eyes?
A thorough analysis of the surface of your eyes and the quality of your tear film will help us to assess the extent of your dry eye syndrome.
Q: I have a friend in whose eyes are frequently overly watery. That isn't Dry Eye, is it?
Excessive reflex tearing is often the most misunderstood symptom of dry eye syndrome. The irritation experienced with dry eye syndrome typically causes reflex tearing, but these tears are runny and spill onto the cheeks.
Q: What are the typical treatments used to help people suffering from Dry Eyes?
Awareness of dry eye syndrome is an important first step to treating the symptoms. A magical cure does not exist! It’s often a combination of warm compresses (10 minutes at a time), better blinking (more frequent, complete blinks especially when reading) and the right choice of artificial tears that help to relieve symptoms.
Q: Are some people more prone to having Dry Eyes than others?
Studies have shown that we blink 43% less often while looking at a screen (computer, tablet, or phone). Moreover, the quality of our tears tends to decline as we get older. And certain medication can lead to a worsening of dry eye symptoms.
Q: Do you have any recommendations for people to help them avoid Dry Eye issues?
Put the word “Blink” on a post-it note and attach it to your phone or monitor at work. ☺ In all seriousness, better blink hygiene (more frequent and complete blinks) will go a long way to reducing symptoms. We’re happy to assess your eyes to let you know the extent of irritation to the surface and guide you toward some relief.
