In Memory

Dr. Ken Gellatly, O.D., F.A.A.O

August 25, 1952 – October 13, 2016

Dr. Gellatly took over the practice from Dr. Ross in 1977. He was passionate about eye care and serving his patients.

Our dear friend and colleague was tragically killed in in a plane crash on October 13, 2016.

He is a great loss to our clinic and to the vision care field, and we miss him each and every day; the memories of his energy and passion for life encourage us to be the best that we can be.


Ken believed Maui Jim sunglasses were the best sunglasses because of their technology for precise optics, tints, and coatings — he was a big believer in the brand and Downtown Vision Care carries the largest inventory in Calgary.
