Choosing Your Contact Lenses

We realize that no two eyes are alike. We’re here to make sure you can find the vision correction you need.

CONTACT LENS FITTING

Maximize your vision through the use of contact lenses today by booking a contact lens fitting with one of our optometrists. Patients believe that the best vision only comes from glasses, however some patients actually see better with contact lenses due to the structure of their eye.  A contact lens is a medical device that needs to be fitted by an optometrist. An evaluation of the contact lens by an optometrist will help to ensure that there is no risk to the health of the eye while wearing the lens. Improper fitting of the contact lens can lead to devastating visual complications that may not be reversible. This is why it is important to make sure every contact lens is fitting properly on the eye.  Our optometrist will recommend and fit you with the most appropriate lens that works with your needs, as well as detailed information regarding storing, cleaning and handling of contacts.

 

A follow-up visit one to two weeks after the contact lens fit is included to ensure the eye is still healthy and the patient is happy. Book an appointment for a contact lens fitting in Toronto/North York today!

 

 

TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES

SOFT LENSES (HYDROGEL)

Soft lenses require almost no physical adaptation. For most individuals, full-time wear is achieved quickly and effortlessly. These lenses have become the most common type of contact lenses. These lenses are comfortable, difficult to dislodge, and don’t easily allow for dust to get underneath them. These soft lenses can be used as dailies or extended wear.

 

RIGID LENSES (GAS PERMEABLES)
As the name implies, these lenses are firm and do not contain water. This hard material lens has a longer adaptation period compared to the soft lens, but once adaptation is complete, most individuals can wear the lens with comfort and safety. Rigid lenses are better optically but less comfortable. A rigid lens can be designed in virtually any size, shape, and prescription.

 

DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES
Disposable lenses are now the new best thing for contact lens users. Disposables help eliminate eye complications from contact lens, such as sleeping with the lens and most of the time, help with discomfort and dryness. Disposables are mostly a soft lens concept, but since hydrogel lens generally deteriorate more rapidly than rigid lenses, there are many designs and materials for daily lenses now. We currently offer daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual contact lens replacement programs.

 

MULTIFOCAL LENSES
Generally as a person ages, they need to get a progressive or bifocal pair of glasses so they can see near and far. There are many multifocal contact lenses that can be used to replace the use of bifocal glasses. Fitting a patient with multifocal lenses does take time but has been very successful in providing a patient with compromising distance and near vision.

We offer the best and newest colour contact lenses in the market that provide better eye care, comfort, breathability and wetting capability.
