Contact Lens Fittings
Hello glasses-free selfies.
Everyone’s eyes are different, so it makes sense that there is a wide array of contact lens fits and brands available. Contact lens exams and fittings ensure that we find the right contact lens to fit with your lifestyle. For those who already wear contact lenses, our optometrists always recommend the latest in technology so you're wearing the most breathable and moist lenses. Let's give a little loving to our eyes please.
Are you curious about contact lenses?
Cataract and Laser Surgery Consultation
Do you want to ditch your glasses? Is your vision feeling foggy?
Laser and cataract surgery are safe, common procedures that correct myopia (nearsightedness), astigmatism, and cataracts. They give you the freedom from contact lenses and glasses that you crave. We offer recommendations at the end of our eye exam. We examine your eyes, review your options, and offer recommendations on ophthalmology centres that we partner and trust. We offer post-surgical care to make sure your eyes recover well.
We are amazed at the number of times we meet a child wearing glasses, and have never been recommended options to proactively manage their nearsightedness. There's no cure for myopia, but there sure are many therapies available to slow the change. including prescription eye drops, glasses, and contact lenses.
Do you want to see if your child is a good candidate for myopia control?
We believe in a proactive approach when it comes to taking care our people's eye disease. We use the latest microscopic, 3D, cross-sectional retinal imaging instruments to accurately monitor your macula health, recommend supplementation when beneficial, and refer to trusted ophthalmology centres when needed.

Specialty Contact Lens Fitting
Do you have astigmatism? Do you wear reading glasses? Have you been told in the past that you're not a candidate for contact lenses?
We urge you to come see us. Lens technology continues to evolve. What was not possible 5, 10, 20 years ago is highly possible now. Our optometrists take pride in fitting toric, multifocal, hybrid, RGP, and scleral contact lenses that cover the majority of visual conditions that glasses or conventional contact lenses were not able to correct.
Dry Eye Assessment and Treatment
Say goodbye to dry, itchy, red eyes at Respect Eyecare.
Let's face it, we live in one of the driest place in the world. This is compounded by digital device use, oral medications, hydration, caffeine intake (who likes their coffee?) and natural aging.
We now know that dry eye is a disease and have figured out in-office and at home therapy to treat it beyond simply relying on generic artificial tears at your local pharmacist - please do not tell us you use Visine!
Do you suffer from dry eyes?
We believe in a proactive approach when it comes to taking care our people's eye disease. We use the latest microscopic, 3D, cross-sectional retinal imaging instruments to accurately monitor your optic nerve and co-manage with all of the ophthalmologists in Calgary.

Diabetic Eye Exams
Although diabetes is a systemic disease, it can often first be identified and diagnosed during a eye exam. Diabetes increase your chances of developing serious eye diseases and conditions including cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
Diabetic eyes require special care and attention, which is why Respect Eyecare offers eye exams tailored to their needs. Individuals with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes should see their optometrist at least annually, even if they are not experiencing any symptoms with their health or vision.
