Who We Are

Core Eye Care was started in 2016 by Dr. Cynthia Du. She had worked with LensCrafters since 2008.

Dr. Cynthia opened Core Eye Care with the intention of providing Calgarians affordable eye care, at a convenient location with business hours and appointment times that worked for busy professionals. Since then, Core Eye Care has continued to fulfill this vision and provide customers the best service in the industry.
