Dr. Phillip Crouse joined the Eye Q team in early 2021 as the newest member of the team. Dr. Crouse was born in South Africa but spent his formative years in Alberta and has come to think of Calgary as his home. He left Calgary to complete his Bachelor of Science at the University of Alberta and then headed south to obtain his Doctor of Optometry in Oregon at Pacific University. While he was a student, Dr. Crouse interned in many different practice environments across the United States, including a Veterans Hospital and a Military base.
Dr. Crouse began his optometry practice in rural Alberta which helped refine his abilities and equipped him with a wealth of experience dealing with ocular emergencies and disease. Dr. Crouse is passionate about eye health and patient education. He enjoys ensuring that each patient understands how their eyes function as well as how to best take care of them. Dr. Crouse is passionate about providing eye exams for all ages, managing dry eye, doing contact lens fits, managing ocular pathology cases all while providing exceptional top quality eye care to all his patients.
Outside of his professional practice, Dr. Crouse loves hockey and golf. In the winter you are likely to find him at the Saddledome cheering on the Flames and in the summer he spends as much time as possible on the golf course. Wherever he is, he loves meeting new people - his favourite part of his job is interacting with people and is welcoming all new patients to his practice.
