Preventative Eye Health Begins With a Comprehensive Eye Exam

A comprehensive eye examination is recommended once every year for individuals of all ages even when there are no visual changes to ensure that the eye health is normal. By not doing so, puts you at a greater risk for undetected vision problems, that can often be irreversible. Vision is beyond seeing 20/20. There are many eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration that are “silent” in their early stages, such that an individual continues to see 20/20 until it has progressed.
An important component of your eye examination at our Calgary clinic is a thorough eye health examination, with our advanced technology imaging and scans of the structures at the back of the eye, to ensure that your eyes are free of disease and abnormalities. Comprehensive eye examinations not only screen for eye problems but can also help diagnose general health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. At Urban Eyecare, we offer thorough eye exams in Calgary and health checks to ensure that your eyes are seeing their best for as long as possible.

What's Included in Eye Exam

Stay Healthy With A Yearly Eye Exam


How often should I be getting a comprehensive eye exam?
Comprehensive eye exams are recommended once a year for individuals of all ages. Annual eye exams are covered by Alberta Health Care for children under the age of 19 years and seniors over the age of 65 years.
Why do I need routine eye exams if I see 20/20?
Vision is beyond just seeing 20/20. There are several eye conditions where the distance vision is unaffected, yet the visual system fails to work adequately due to eye teaming and coordination problems resulting in constant eye strain and headaches. If you have good vision, the purpose of routine eye examinations is to ensure adequate eye teaming and oculomotor functions, and to screen for eye conditions that can affect the front and back of the eye. Most eye conditions are very subtle in nature when they begin making it impossible for you to detect them until they are quite advanced, which in most cases is too late to treat. These subtle signs are easily detectable by an eyecare professional when they look at the front and back of your eye during your routine eye examination. When detected early, many eye conditions are treatable to either stop or slow down their progression.

How Can I Maintain Good Vision?

The best way to maintain good vision is to stay up to date with your annual eye exams. Your annual exam checks your visual acuity, eye muscle coordination, and screens for eye diseases at the front and back of your eyes. Problems occurring in any of these areas can decrease your vision temporarily or permanently if left untreated. Annual eye exams screen for such problems to ensure that your eyes are not only seeing clearly but also comfortably to their best potential.

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
