  • Regular checkups with your Calgary eye doctor
  • Following a healthy lifestyle (eating a balanced diet and quitting smoking)
  • Understanding your family’s history of eye conditions
  • Wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays
  • Wearing protective eyewear when playing sports or performing other activities

4 Ways Our Calgary Eye Doctors Help Protect Your Vision

Whether you’re looking for a new pair of eyeglasses or want to try contact lenses, the qualified optometrists at our Calgary eye clinic have the expertise, knowledge, and experience to help fulfill all your vision needs.

Here are 4 services we provide to help keep your vision as clear and healthy as possible:

Choosing Your Frame

Today, eyeglasses are not simply a solution for vision problems, but they’re also fashionable accessories for patients of all ages. Glasses that provide good vision but lack comfort, physical appeal, and style, often end up in a drawer.

At our Calgary eye clinic, we offer premium optical care, along with the highest quality frames and lenses for all lifestyle, occupational, and recreational needs.

Let our Eye Doctors Help You

Our optometrists are experts in helping you find the best fit for your lifestyle, individual needs, and personal style.

They will:

  • Explain how various lenses and frames will impact your vision
  • Help you select a frame and lenses
  • Ensure you get a pair of glasses whose fit and functionality works best for you

Find Your Perfect Pair Of Eyeglasses


Finding The Right Pair of Sunglasses

Everyone enjoys bright and sunny days, but did you know that UV rays and the glare it creates can cause a variety of issues, such as cataracts, a higher risk of developing AMD, and other irreversible disorders that threaten your vision.

How does UV affect vision?

If you spend a lot of time outdoors without wearing sunglasses, the UV rays can begin to affect your vision.

In some cases, overexposure to UV rays can:

  • Cause cataracts (a blurring of your lens) which can affect your vision.
  • Increase the risk of retinal damage
  • Cause changes in eye tissues
  • Lead to temporary sunburn that leaves your eyes irritated

At Market Mall Optometry, our knowledgeable staff will fit you with authentic sunglasses, with polarized lenses, based on your prescription.

What are polarized lenses?

A virtually invisible filter can be built into the lenses of your sunglasses to eliminate the amount of reflecting light that enters the eyes.

Polarized lenses will:

  • Reduce glare and haze, making your vision more comfortable
  • Help you see more clearly, especially when driving
  • Make images sharper and clearer
  • Increase visual clarity and comfort

Often, polarized lenses are recommended for tasks such as driving, jogging, golfing, and skiing. We can offer these lenses in a variety of colours and prescriptions to suit your needs and personal style.


Contact Lenses

At Market Mall Optometry, we dispense only the highest quality contact lenses. We offer more than what money can buy: true care for the health of your eyes.

Contact Lens Fitting

Following your eye exam, your eye doctor will provide you with a variety of contact lens options to provide optimum comfort for your vision needs and lifestyle.

Taking into consideration your eye health, whether you suffer from dry eyes or other allergies, we can help you find the perfect contact lenses that will provide many benefits.

These include:

  • A wider field of vision
  • Improved safety
  • Greater visual clarity and peripheral vision
  • Less visual distortions
  • A more natural and free look

Contact Lens Fitting


Computer Vision and Blue Light Lenses

Do you find yourself squinting at your computer, tablet, or cellphone screen for many hours a day?

Signs that your vision is being disturbed by the use of this technology include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Eye strain and discomfort
  • Headaches
  • Dry and scratchy eyes
  • Neck and shoulder pain

For patients with otherwise normal and healthy vision, our eye doctors can recommend and fit blue light lenses into your eyeglasses as these are very helpful in cutting down, or even eliminating, computer eye strain problems and improving your vision.
