Our Team


Serving Calgarians and the Community Since the 1950s

Downtown Vision Care has been serving Calgarians and area residents since the 1950s when the clinic was founded by Dr. Charlie Ross. Many of our staff and patients have been with us for decades. 

We also serve on various committees related to vision care including the Alberta College of Optometrists Competence Committee and participate in clinical research studies. Some of our doctors have also travelled on eye care missions to third world countries. 


Why Choose Us?

We offer expert eye care in a fun and relaxing clinic — with friendly and kind service, from our receptionist to our optometrists. Everyone is so busy these days and our clinic is located conveniently downtown so there’s minimal downtime in your jam-packed day. Our goal is to provide you with the most effective and efficient service possible and we’ve built long-lasting relationships with suppliers and vendors so you can get back to living your life.

Onsite Optical Lab

For standard eye lenses, we offer same day service through our onsite Optical Lab, so you don’t have to make a second trip. We also carry a very large inventory of contact lenses so you don’t have to return, or we can courier them to you or direct ship them.
