Trusted In Calgary For Children's Eye Exams

Child eye exams are absolutely crucial! A child’s first eye examination should be at the age of 6 months, then yearly after that. Children's eye examinations are fully covered by Alberta Health Care up to the age of 19 years. The primary goal of an eye exam at 6 months of age is to screen for any serious eye conditions such as eye turns, genetic conditions affecting the back of the eye or cancer of the eye. Those conditions that can be treated must be treated right away to avoid any progression. Once the child gets older, then their eye exam is focused more towards eye teaming abilities, eye movement abilities, and their prescription, while keeping a close eye on their eye health each year. At Urban Eyecare, we love seeing children of all ages. We use specialized child-friendly equipment to help examine all aspects of a child’s vision and eye health. Dr. Palki Arora has undergone additional training to focus on child vision and development, she is board certified in Vision Therapy.

Alberta Health Care covers eye exam for children every year!

What's Included


What If My Child Is Not Complaining About Their Eyesight?

Studies have shown that 1 in 4 school-aged children have a vision problem. This can be related to their visual acuity, eye focusing or eye teaming skills. Often, children do not complain of any visual problems. This makes it even more important to get their routine eye exams every year. Eye problems in children include blurry vision, eye strain, eye pain, double vision, dry eyes etc. If left untreated, eye problems in children can start impacting their school performance or can sometimes be misdiagnosed as behavioural problems such as ADHD and dyslexia.

It was an awesome experience. Never knew what I was getting myself into until I came to the clinic, Dr Arora and her team of staff were very kind, patient and well grounded in the eye business. They made me felt at home, gave a thorogh examination of my eyes and now I can see better. The cost is also awesome, well affordable in comparison with others and the quality of care more

The doctor was very knowledgable and kind. I felt that my exam was very thorough and she explained why I was experiencing issues with my sight. The staff at the front were so nice and helped me pick out my first pair of glasses. They looked up my coverage for me and took care of the direct billing.My glasses seemed pricey but I have no idea what is normal. I would recommend this place for the service!!read more

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I work close to Urban Eyewear so decided to check them out. Eye exam was VERY comparably priced to Costco and others. Eye dilation is covered under Alberta health care (Which I know my mom was just charged extra at her optometrist for the dilation) Roxana and Dr Marsh are awesome. Roxana was very helpful in helping me find the right pair and such a sweet heart she is!!!!!! I will keep my business at URBAN EYEWEAR FOR SURE!read more

I brought back a pair of very expensive Maui Jim’s because I had scratched them and then the scratch had turned into a crack. They recommended that I send them back to the factory to see if it was a manufacturer defect. A few weeks later, I got the call and picked up what I think was a brand new pair. Although it cost me 15 dollars for shipping, it was definitely worth it! The service was great, and I would definitely go here again for all my eye care more

So this is a local shop for me and I love it! They are so friendly, helpful and kind. I went in to look for Maui Jim Sunglasses. They didn't have the color I liked so they sat me down and went on the computer and customized sunglasses for me! This was on a Tuesday and by Thursday they had called and they were in! Went and picked them up in a pretty bag with a full size glass cleaner! I'm definately going to be using them for my kids and my eye checkups! Great service and Great people!!read more

I came in to look for a new pair of sunglasses at an affordable price. The ladies at the front were very helpful and gave me honest opinions on the glasses I was trying on. They made the experience very enjoyable and I ended up leaving with a pair of Gucci sunglasses that were at an extremely affordable price!read more
