Welcome to Vivid Eye Care, located inside the Cranston Market Clinic (near the Cranston Community Center, beside the Sobeys and Scotiabank). We are a full-scope optometry practice that provides residents of Cranston, Auburn Bay, McKenzie Towne, and other south Calgary communities with world-class eye care services.
We welcome you to visit our clinic when you’re looking for comprehensive eye care that goes above and beyond.
Adults that currently wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should have annual eye exams. Eye exams every 1 or 2 years are recommended for all individuals, even if you currently do not wear glasses. This is because many eye diseases do not present with symptoms when they first start forming. Without regular eye exams, the first sign something is wrong may be when you notice a change to your vision!
Our eye exams are tailored for the patients receiving them. Senior citizens and kids receive different tests based on their needs (which are informed by age, medical history, and current eye health).
Our practice uses equipment that enables our personal eye care consultants and eye doctors to gain a better understanding of your eye health, vision correction needs, and other components that allow us to provide a superior standard of eye care.
We employ two pieces of equipment – the Optomap Wide-field Retinal Camera and Nidek Ocular Coherence Tomography – which set the standard for optical imaging. Together, these two pieces of tech give us the ability to:
In addition to empowering our doctors and staff to gain incredible insights into your overall eye health and vision needs, the technology we incorporate into our eye exams also improves patient comfort throughout the exam.
If this is your first appointment with us there will be some registration information that we will complete together. This helps us gain perspective on your current eye health, vision care history to date, medical insurance information, and other important pieces that we need. Future appointments will not need this step to be completed.
The first stage of the exam involves meeting with your personal eye care consultant – an experienced technician that will stay with you for the duration of your appointment. They will perform several preliminary tests before you then meet with an eye doctor.
With the pre-tests completed, you will then meet with one of our optometrists. All our optometrists provide identical standards of care, so you can feel confident when you meet with them!
If you’re one of the lucky ones that don’t require vision correction, this step will not apply to you! However, for more than 70% of Canadian adults, corrective lenses are needed to provide proper vision. We will update your prescription to ensure that you can see to the best of your abilities.
Armed with your prescription, you’ll be invited to our optical dispensary where you can select from dozens of eyewear brands. Our selection is enormous, from Canada’s affordable favourites to exclusive brands from Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world.
Our office is part of the Cranston Market Clinic and is just two minutes off of Deerfoot Trail. Vivid Eye Care is in the same plaza as the Sobey’s and Scotiabank.
