Calgary Eye Clinics Expands Services to Include Routine Eye Exams

Calgary Eye Clinics today announced that the clinic is now offering comprehensive eye examinations to patients to tackle early warning signs of serious eye conditions. With no fewer than 8 million Canadians battling eye diseases and another 1.5 experiencing sight loss, there’s much to be done to raise awareness and alleviate risks. Even worse, a growing number of Canadians with a family history of vision impairment are at heightened risk of eye disease.

A spokesperson for Calgary Eye Clinics explained the initiative’s motive, saying, “The vast majority of eye diseases are preventable but many people are complacent about addressing them. Since these conditions are degenerative in the absence of care, an affected person risks permanent eye damage. For this reason, our vision screening service extends beyond a public health campaign. It’s a preventative measure against future vision loss.”

According to Calgary Eye Clinics, the newly launched service will reduce cases of vision impairment from diabetes and glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinopathy, conjunctivitis, and other disorders. The eye exams target patients of all ages, including children. As recommended by the clinic, eye patients ought to undergo check-ups at least once every two years. This makes early detection and prevention of degenerative eye diseases achievable.

Optometrists at Calgary Eye Clinics conduct vision screenings to determine if a child or an adult is at risk and then prescribe the right treatment and management plan. The clinic offers an excellent range of eye care services, including:

  • Glaucoma screening
  • Retinal imaging
  • Photographic screenings
  • Contact lenses provision
  • Lipid eye and sclera lenses solutions
  • Macular disease diagnosis
  • Digital eye strain treatment

These services are delivered through a dedicated team of board-certified ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians. Their service areas encompass three popular Calgary neighbourhoods:

  • Marlborough
  • Willow Park
  • Varsity

Patients are encouraged to visit any of the clinics in Marlborough Mall, Southcentre Mall, and CF Market Mall for affordable eye exams. While a comprehensive vision screening costs $130, Calgary Eye Clinics provides a discounted charge of CA$30 for those with valid Alberta health insurance coverage. Expect to pay at least $170 for a detailed contact lens eye exam. Patients who prefer to make appointments in advance can book online.

The clinic offers extended hours to accommodate patients with busy or odd schedules. Patients who can’t book online may benefit from walk-in appointments for quicker access to professional eye exams. At present, service expansion in other Calgary neighbourhoods is in the works. Calgary Eye Clinics believes that this plan will improve healthcare accessibility and affordability on a wider scale.
