Spectacular Vision Without the Spectacles

One thing we always want is options. It’s human nature. Contact lenses are precisely that: an incredible option for people looking to improve their vision, without using glasses.

There are plenty of reasons why you may want to make the switch to contact lenses. If you are tired of being restricted to one or two pairs of frames, or your glasses get in the way, contacts can add a level of versatility, without sacrificing your vision.

The Contact Lens Exam

Kindly let our staff know of your interest in being fitted for contact lenses when you book your eye exam. By giving your optometrist notice, they can tailor their exam to make sure your eyes are a good match for contact lenses.

Once your optometrist helps you find the right contact lenses for your eyes, you will visit our fabulous team of opticians for a quick educational seminar. This seminar will teach you proper techniques on how to take care of your contact lenses, as well as how to properly insert and extract your contacts from your eyes.

Reasons Contact Lenses May Not Be Your Match

Although contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses, not everyone is well suited to them. There are a variety of eye conditions that might prevent you from using contacts, these include:

  • Having recurring eye infections
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Problems with your eyes staying lubricated (dry eyes)
  • Regular exposure to dusty and dirty environments

Our Specialty Contacts

Toric contact lenses are an innovative solution that help solve issues wearers with astigmatism might experience.

It can be hard to wear contact lenses if you have astigmatism, which makes the shape of your cornea irregular. Toric lenses are designed to correct different prescriptions along each axis, sitting nicely on your cornea, correcting your vision problems, without discomfort.

Another issue patients with astigmatism might experience, is that their contact lenses may rotate resulting in intermittent blurry vision. Toric contacts are weighted in the centre or along the bottom to keep them stable and help resolve this problem!

If you want to wear contact lenses, but need glasses to read, then you might benefit from using multifocal contact lenses. Multifocals are built with multiple prescriptions to help provide you with your best possible vision at all distances.

When it comes to controlling myopia, MiSight 1 Day contact lenses are one of the most common options. Generally recommended for children developing myopia, MiSight 1 Day contacts help focus light on the retina for clarity, while slowing the progression of myopia.

Transition contact lenses are an excellent option for your eyes if you have trouble or discomfort when adjusting to different lighting situations. These contacts dim as they detect brighter light, helping you squint less. They can also protect your eyes from possible UV damage caused by the sun.
