Qualified and Specialized Eye Care

Since opening in 2005, Mission Eye Care has been one of Calgary's most caring and reliable sources of high-end eye care. Extremely well-qualified optometrists and optometric assistants put this eye care centre at the top of the list for any eye issue that may arise.

Owner and optometrist Dr. Riaz Ahmed, for example, specializes in treating dry eyes and corneal diseases. He is passionate about producing real results when dealing with his patient's problems. He has worked on specializing his clinic so that his team can truly change the lives of patients with chronically dry eyes.

"We live in one of the driest cities on the planet," he explains. "We quickly realized that our patients were not getting satisfactory results elsewhere and we made it our mission to excel in this area. We now have a dedicated dry eye clinic that provides specialty care to dry-eye sufferers.

Dr. Ahmed also explains that Mission Eye Care is the primary centre in Calgary for specialty contact lens fittings for patients with corneal disease. “One of our doctors is Calgary's only residency-trained and fellowship-credentialed doctors of optometry in this field."

We handpick every frame in our inventory and get to know our clients, many of whom are more like family. - Dr. Riaz Ahmed, owner

The Best Optometrist and the Best Equipment

When starting out, Dr. Ahmed had to make tough decisions about how to provide high-quality of care. Even the best doctors need the best equipment to offer the best treatment.

"With respect to startup costs, significant investment in diagnostic equipment is needed to provide high levels of patient care," he explains. "So either open lean and buy equipment over time, or go into debt, but provide the best service and diagnostic equipment to provide superior patient care. Although risky and scary at first, I did the latter, and it was certainly the right decision."

His dedication to providing the best healthcare service shows in the compassion with which he and his team treat customers on a daily basis.

Exclusive Eyewear, Speciality Contact Lenses

According to Dr. Ahmed, the reason Mission Eye Care exists is because of an obsessive focus on high customer service levels. Fixing problems that other optometrists could not and making customers feel at ease is the driving force behind the clinic.

He also states that it carries unique eyewear that you won’t find online or in most retail chains. "We handpick every frame in our inventory," he explains, "and get to know our clients, many of whom are more like family."
