Contact Lens Fitting and Contacts
There is no contact lens size that fits all eyes. You may experience discomfort or even damage to your corneas if the curvature of a contact lens is too flat or too steep for your eye. We will take measurements to properly determine the best contact lens size and function for your eyes. You must have an adequate tear film to keep the contact lenses and your cornea sufficiently moist and hydrated and to properly qualify for wearing contact lenses. This test may be performed with a liquid dye placed on your eye so your tears can be better observed, or by using a thin strip of special paper (placed under your lower lid) to see how well your tears moisten the material. If you have dry eyes, contact lenses may not be right for you. Furthermore, the amount of tears you produce may determine which contact lens material may be best appropriate.
If your eyes surface is found to be somewhat irregular, because of astigmatism for example, you may require a special lens design known as a “toric” contact lens. In the past, only gas permeable contact lenses could correct for astigmatism. There are now many brands of soft toric lenses, which are available in disposable, multi-focal, extended wear and even colored versions. Call us to schedule an appointment for your contact lens fitting.
In addition, as a contact lens centre, we are able to offer a full range of lenses, including the latest disposables.
Prescription Sunglasses, Sunglasses and Accessories
A full range of sunglasses and accessories are also stocked. All of our designer sunglasses have premium UV protection. Eyes of every age, gender, and color need protection. The sun does not discriminate. Your eyes are for life not just your holidays! Protect them all year round. Polarized lenses for sunglasses remove reflections and glare and will provide a sharper image than you would find in a traditional tinted sunglass lens. If you spend a lot of time outdoors or driving in the car, and still need vision correction, prescription sunglasses are perfect for soothing the eyes. Since most prescription sunglasses manufacturers block 100% UV, prescription sunglasses are a healthy way to enjoy the outdoors (especially the beach) and driving using the darkest lenses available to protect against the brightness of the sun.
We accept a wide range of insurance plans. We invite you to ask us questions about your optical insurance. We will help you navigate the vision insurance options available to you.
