We Fit Contact Lenses & Offer Free One-Day Trials

Your eyes are as unique as you are. And while uniqueness is a wonderful thing, it can make it challenging to find contact lenses that fit comfortably. But that shouldn’t stop you! Our contact lens exams and fittings are specially designed to help you find the lenses that fit and function precisely how you need them to.

How Does a Contact Lens Exam & Fitting Work?

The first step is to confirm that your current prescription is accurate. Then we’ll calculate what your contact lens prescription is.

From there, we can set you up for a free one-day trial, where our contact fitters put a pair of contacts in for you, you wear them about town for a couple of hours, and then return to have your fitter remove the lenses. This is all free of charge, with no obligation.

If you, like many people, are impressed with your trial contacts, we’ll book and start the fitting process. At that appointment, we’ll teach you how to insert, remove, and care for your contacts. Then we’ll send you home with your first pair of lenses. We’ll see you back in a week or so to fine-tune your contact fit and prescription and help you with any issues or questions you have.

Once we’ve found lenses that work for your eyes and your lifestyle, it’s time to learn how to take care of them. We’ll give you specific care instructions when we see you, but in the meantime, here are some basic rules you’ll want to follow:

  • Always wash your hands before inserting or removing your contacts.
  • Rinse your contacts with solution before and after wearing them.
  • Keep your contact lenses in the proper case with fresh contact solution.
  • Do not top up the solution in your case when it gets low; discard the old solution and refill the case with new solution.
  • Do not wear your contacts overnight.

Specialty Contact Lenses

In addition to many excellent contact brands, we also carry a number of specialty contact lenses. During your fitting or eye exam, ask us what kind of specialty contact lenses could help you.

Toric Contact Lenses

Astigmatism is an irregularly shaped cornea that causes varying degrees of blurriness at all distances. Correction is more difficult because of varying prescriptions across the cornea. Toric contact lenses address this issue.

A toric lens has a varying prescription across the lens to counter corneal astigmatism, giving the patient clear vision. Because toric lenses have to sit on your eye in a certain way, they’re designed and carefully fitted to ensure they stay in the proper position.

Much like multifocal eyeglass lenses, multifocal contacts offer multiple prescriptions in a single lens. These contact lenses are designed to provide clear vision at multiple distances for patients with a refractive error or presbyopia (difficulty seeing close-up objects), which occurs with age.

Patients with astigmatism can also experience presbyopia as they age. Multifocal toric contacts correct distance vision just like standard toric lenses. However, they also offer near zones to correct presbyopia, offering clear vision for activities like reading.

Gas permeable lenses (or GP lenses) are made from a rigid material that allows oxygen to pass through them. These lenses are sturdier, and with proper care, they tend to last longer than soft contact lenses. Because GP lenses retain their shape during a blink, some patients find they provide clearer vision than other types of contacts.

Myopia (or nearsightedness) is extremely common, affecting about a third of Canadians. It starts in childhood and progresses through age 20. One of the most promising treatments to slow myopia progression in children is MiSight Myopia Management daily contacts.

These daily lenses correct vision while also slowing elongation of the eye that causes nearsightedness. Book an appointment to talk to your doctor about whether MiSight is appropriate for your child’s growing eyes.
