Optometrist Builds Practice With an 'Eye' for Luxury

While her national anthem is “O, Canada,” Calgary native Dr. Candria Krywko is likely hearing “Oh, Candria!” more often these days, thanks to throngs of grateful patients.

A leading local optometrist, Dr. Krywko heads Eyes on Hayden, providing full-scope eye care for individuals ages 5 and older.

“My aim has always been to provide my patients with the means to see the world more clearly, quite literally, but with style, too,” she says.

Speaking of style, haute couture actually inspired her into eye care.

“This may sound odd, but from a fashion standpoint, I thought glasses were fabulous from a young age,” says Dr. Krywko, who loved nothing more than to use vision—or lack thereof—as a chance to change up her look.

This passion for fashion led Dr. Krywko to the Southern California College of Optometry, where she earned her doctorate in 2010 before practicing in Las Vegas, New York City, and then Scottsdale, her forever home, in 2013.

“After nearly a decade of experience, I founded Eyes on Hayden in 2019 to bring the Valley a more elevated experience when it came to eye care,” says Dr. Krywko.

This elevated experience starts with her luxury on-site optical boutique.

“We’ve curated collections from the most coveted designers, but also pieces totally unique to us statewide,” says Dr. Krywko, noting just some of the brands available include Gucci, Prada, and Versace.

The Dry Eye Med Spa is also a head-turner.

“We are one of only a handful of Arizona practices with the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) dry eye treatment and the MiBo Thermoflo heated eyelid massage,” she says, adding that treatments are even done in massage chairs. “We want to pamper your eyes just as much as we want to take care of them.” EyesOnHayden.com
