There are a lot of reasons you may be interested in contact lenses.

Compared to glasses, contact lenses are much more discreet. Once they are inserted, it is extremely unlikely that anyone else would be aware that you are wearing them.

Contact lenses are also more versatile and more convenient to wear. Whereas glasses need to be cleaned numerous times per day, contact lenses do not generally require a cleaning once they are inserted. So long as you follow appropriate cleaning and storage instructions, you should enjoy hassle-free vision correction from contacts.

Contact lenses also do not fog up in extremely humid or cold weather.

Finally, contact lenses do not change your appearance when worn. If you require corrective lenses but you don’t want to wear glasses, contacts are your best choice outside of laser eye surgery.

Today, there is a contact lens available for almost all prescriptions and needs. We can provide you with standard, disposable, and continuous-wear contact lenses in single vision, multi-power, and progressive options.

Contacts are a convenient and affordable option for most people. Aside from proper cleaning/storage, contact lenses require no maintenance. Most people find adapting to contacts quite easy, and enjoy the convenience they provide.

Most people have a bit of unease the first time they insert or remove their contact lenses. However, with a bit of practice, inserting/removing your contact lenses becomes a breeze.

We will show you proper insertion/removal techniques once we have completed your fitting.

For Millions of Canadians, Contact Lenses Are Their Ideal Method of Vision Correction.

Safe to wear, easy to insert/remove, and affordable, contact lenses are the preferred method of vision correction for millions of Canadians.

Compared to glasses, contacts have a lot of benefits. Namely, they are more convenient to wear (you do not have to take them out when playing sports, having a shower, etc.) and provide better vision correction overall (since they correct into your peripheral vision, whereas glasses only correct where their lens occupies).

Today, you can find contacts in single and multi power configurations. Ask us about which lenses are ideal for you.

More Information About Contacts

Wear Schedule – Most contact lenses are a monthly replacement, though there are contact lenses with shorter replacement intervals such as daily or bi-weekly.. We will assess your eyes and provide our recommended fit/wear schedule.

Potential Complications – Most complications from contact lenses are a result of overwear, dirty lenses or lenses that do not fit correctly. In most cases, any discomfort caused by contact lenses can be rectified by reassessing the lenses themselves.

Potential complications:

  • Symptoms similar to dry eye
  • Blurry or hazy vision (as a result of corneal scratches, hypoxia, or infection)
  • Inflammation/irritation of the eye or eyelid
