Contact Lens Fitting In Vaughan & Woodbridge

Whether you’re trying contacts for the first time or need a new prescription, you must have a contact lens fitting. The Canadian Association of Optometrists advises that there are risks involved in buying your contacts online - -which is true when buying from a disreputable vendor and not doing your homework. However, with an eye exam, an in-person contact lens fitting and up-to-date prescription, you are fully ready to shop for the best deal from a reputable retailer online.

When scheduling your appointment, make it clear that you need a contact lens prescription. That way, your eye doctor can allocate enough time to perform all the necessary tests. Have your regular eye exam and your contact lens exam with the same doctor since it’ll save you trouble.
The first part of a contact lens exam is a standard eye exam. Your eye doctor will determine your prescription and refractive error using various lenses and letter boards. Next, he or she will perform cover tests. These tests analyze how well your eyes work together. Now, your optometrist will move on to the contact lens fitting. These are the measurements that he or she will take.

TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES

SOFT LENSES (HYDROGEL)
Soft lenses require almost no physical adaptation. For most individuals, full-time wear is achieved quickly and effortlessly. These lenses have become the most common type of contact lenses. These lenses are comfortable, difficult to dislodge, and don’t easily allow for dust to get underneath them. These soft lenses can be used as dailies or extended wear.
DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES
Disposable lenses are now the new best thing for contact lens users. Disposables help eliminate eye complications from contact lens, such as sleeping with the lens and most of the time, help with discomfort and dryness. Disposables are mostly a soft lens concept, but since hydrogel lens generally deteriorate more rapidly than rigid lenses, there are many designs and materials for daily lenses now. We currently offer daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual contact lens replacement programs.


MULTIFOCAL LENSES
Generally as a person ages, they need to get a progressive or bifocal pair of glasses so they can see near and far.
