At Progressive Optometry, we are committed to providing you with all the needs for a lifetime of healthy and clear vision.
Operating as usual
Cataract is the clouding of the eye’s crystalline lens. Can you see the white spikes at the edges of the pupil? This can cause symptoms of glare, especially in a dark environment.
Cataracts are an age-related condition. UV exposure, smoking, diabetes and certain medications can cause early onset of cataracts.
Fortunately, an eye surgeon can easily remove the cataract. Did you know that cataract surgery is the most common surgery in the world?

Sports related eye injury is one of the leading cause blindness. Whether you’re an elite or a budding athlete, don’t take chances on your eyes. Come check out our specialty sports goggles for racquet sports, hockey and skiing (we have prescription ski googles).
First eye exam begins at 6 months old 🍼to check for congenital eye conditions to risk factors for high prescription and lazy eye. 👀Early intervention is key to future success. 👩🎓Be sure to book your child’s yearly eye exam which is covered under Alberta Health Care.🧑⚕️ #progressiceoptometry #infantdevelopment #yycbabies #calgaryfamily #calgaryhealth #panoramahills #panoramahillsyyc #coventryhillsyyc #livingstonyyc #carringtonyyc #skyviewyyc #sandstoneyyc #eyeseeeyelearn #optometry #optometristsofinstagram
I miss attending continuing education conferences. However, this past several months, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend various virtual conferences hosted by cities around the world! Got to learn lots and apply to clinic life. #lifelonglearning #covidlife #womeninoptometry #doctormom #yycliving #progressiveoptometry
Poor fitting glasses will cause eye strain, poor posture and reduced optical quality. We are happy to offer you a complimentary adjustment!
Joy, our compassionate and thoughtful team member, made some deliveries to our local Fire Department and EMS services.
Our clinic collected toonie donations from the sale of hand crafted masks and donations from providing disposable masks to patients that did not have one of their own to wear while in our office. The pot of toonies purchased a pile of $5.00 prepaid Tim Hortons gift cards in hopes of being able to put a warm beverage in the hands of our first responders working over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. They sacrifice their family time to make sure our community is well cared for and we appreciate that even more so during this time of year and in the midst of COVID. Thank you for your service, stay safe and Merry Christmas!
Happy Halloween!!! Fun is not cancelled despite the pandemic. Costumes 👻, treats 🍭 and decoration 🎃 are still to be had!
We love seeing pediatric patients. Did you know first eye exam starts at 6 - 12 months old? We are able to detect/evaluate risks for lazy eye, high prescription and certain congenital conditions.

I took this video to share with the other optometrists in our clinic as I was testing this product out. Wasn’t planning on posting this, but too good to not share.
This anti-fog cloth works so well and I know everyone who wears glasses have experienced foggy lenses whether it is from wearing a mask, switching from cool to warm places, opening the oven door etc.
One wipe last for 48 hours, the cloth is good for at least 500 uses!
Just want to share this with you so you know it is available for your convenience. I ordered some for our clinic and it was sold out in a week. No worries, our new order just came in!

Runners, are you taking the proper precautions? Common Mistake #1. Wearing your prescription glasses when running. The glasses you wear for work or fashion might not be suitable for running. These frames might bounce around when moving and may cause eye strain, dizziness, visual or depth distortions and fluctuation in vision. If you are an athlete, consider #sportseyewear. Also, make sure the lenses are impact resistant in case of an accident. Further, prescription #polarizedsunglasses with #uvprotection will give you that extra clarity! Stay tune for more eye tips for runners!

Progressive Optometry Health and Safety Update – COVID-19
Recently, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect many people around the world. Recently, Alberta Health Services (AHS) released information regarding the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Calgary. This recent development serves as a good reminder to all patients and staff that are feeling unwell or have had close contact with unwell family members to avoid all appointments in order to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 and other viruses.
Currently, the AHS official website states that the risk of COVID-19 transmission within Alberta is low. However, we feel that initiating pro-active preventative measures is the most prudent approach for Progressive Optometry and our patients at this time.
Here are some of the Alberta Health Services approved ways to avoid the spread of common and uncommon viruses:
•Stay home if you're sick. If your kids are sick, keep them home and other activities. Particularly, in the case of a fever and/or dry cough.
•Please make sure everyone in your household diligently washes their hands with soap and water often.
•Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
•Use a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw it away. If you don't have one, sneeze into your sleeve.
Progressive Optometry has increased our sanitation and cleaning efforts to ensure that our clinic is as germ-free as possible. We strongly encourage the use of the hand sanitizer and frequent hand washing. If patients or employees are symptomatic with viral like symptoms they should stay away from the clinic until a health care professional has determined they no longer need to isolate themselves.
If you have concerns related to viral illnesses, potential exposures, advice regarding isolation procedures and testing or specific concerns regarding COVID-19 please contact Alberta Health Link at 811 for health advice.
You can find more information related to the COVID-19 on the Alberta Health Services Website.
Our food drive was a great success! Thank you to everyone’s generous support as we collected 570 pounds of food!

Our Dr’s and support staff here at Progressive Optometry/Browz Eyeware can’t thank our community of amazing patients enough for their support in our food drive this Christmas.
