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
