Calgary Contact Lenses & Fittings

The world of contact lenses has been through a dramatic shift in technology over the past few years. New silicone hydrogel materials have allowed for much greater comfort in delivering moisture and plentiful supply of oxygen to the eye.

We find we are successfully fitting many people who have experienced comfort problems in contact lenses in the past. We fit all major contact lens brands and for your convenience, stock many lens styles and powers on-site.

Some of the lens styles we fit include:

  • spherical (for farsightedness and nearsightedness)
  • toric (for astigmatism)
  • multifocal (to eliminate the need for bifocals or reading glasses)
  • gas permeable
  • custom fit (more complex custom fit lenses for those with unique visual scenarios)
  • extended wear (for use day and night)
  • Ortho Keratology (ortho-k) – for overnight correction of nearsightedness

As with the great flexibility in lens designs and material, there is also much choice to the disposability of lenses:

  • Dailies (1 day disposable)
  • Biweekly (2 week disposable)
  • Monthly (1 month disposable)
  • Conventional (yearly use)
  • Ortho-K (non-surgical alternative to laser surgery)
