VQ Optometry

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

VQ Optometry Values

VQ Optometry is a family oriented clinic that is dedicated in providing comprehensive and personable eye care to communities within Calgary. In efforts to remain in the forefront of both medical and primary eye care in optometry, we utilize diagnostic technology and remain up to date with the constant advancements in eye care.



Dr. Gabrielle Ma was born and raised in Calgary and is the director
and owner of VQ Optometry.

Dr. Ma obtained an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences
from the University of Calgary. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Ma earned
her doctorate of optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry
(ICO) in Chicago. During her optometric education she received
extensive training in hospitals and clinics around the United States.
The areas of training includes ocular disease, geriatrics, specialty
contact lenses, binocular vision, vision therapy, and pediatrics. She
has since found her calling to return back to Calgary to deliver
exceptional eye care to a community that has given so much to her. She is also able to provide eye exams in Cantonese.

Dr. Ma’s clinical interests include complex ocular disease cases
and specialty contact lenses to treat myopia, corneal conditions,
and ocular surface diseases.

During her free time, Dr. Ma enjoys spending time with her family,
travelling, reading, and hiking.

Dr. Christopher Vu was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska and is new to Calgary as of June 2017.

Dr. Vu earned his Bachelors of Science in Environmental Biology in Los Angeles and, after working in an optometric practice in Boulder, Colorado, decided to move to Chicago and earn his Doctorate of Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry (ICO). In addition to the clinical education received during his time in the program, Dr. Vu had the opportunity to practice in high-needs, specialty clinics with an emphasis in specialty areas such as pediatrics, contact lens, and ocular disease and emergencies.

Dr. Vu will be assisting Dr. Ma in providing remarkable, family-based eye care to Calgarians in his new hometown. He is also able to provide eye exams in basic Spanish.

During his free time, Dr. Vu enjoys rock climbing, playing music, and spending time with his family.
