Contact Lens Exam & Fittings

Contacts Lenses to Fit Your Eyes & Lifestyle

Contact lenses are an excellent corrective option, offering convenience, versatility, and most importantly, freedom. You may think that contact lenses aren’t for you, but the truth is with the new technology in design and materials there is almost a contact lens for everyone. That’s where we come in.

We Fit Contact Lenses and Do Free 1 Day Trials!

Your eyes are as unique and different as you are. And while uniqueness is a wonderful thing, it can make it difficult to find contact lenses to 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 exactly how you need them too.

Book your contact lens exam and fitting with us today.

Caring For Your Contacts

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 need 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 just top up the solution in your case when it gets low; discard the old solution, and refill it with completely new solution
  • Do not wear your contacts overnight

How Does a Contact Lens Exam & Fitting Work?

The first step is to confirm that your current prescription is accurate, and then calculate what your contact lens prescription is.

From there, we can set you up for a free 1 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. All free of charge and no obligation.

If you, like many people, are impressed, we’ll book and start the fitting process. That day, 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.

Speciality Contact Lenses

In addition to a variety of excellent contact brands, we also carry a number of speciality contact lenses. These speciality contacts each have some kind of extra feature or function, making them different from standard lenses. Ask us what kind of speciality contact lenses could help you.

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

A toric lens has varying prescription across the lens to counter the 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 those who are also experiencing presbyopia (difficulty seeing close-up objects) which occurs with age.

Patients with astigmatism also experience presbyopia as they age. Multifocal toric contacts correct distance vision 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 it. 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.

In the eye care industry, patients who have trouble wearing contact lenses often have what are called “hard-to-fit” eyes. These patients are usually told they can’t wear contacts, but that’s not necessarily true.

Scleral lenses offer added stability, making them ideal for “hard-to-fit” eyes. Instead of just covering the cornea like an average contact lens, a scleral lens covers the cornea and the sclera (the white part of your eye). This extra coverage makes the lens more stable, keeping it from slipping with every blink.
