We offer our patients the latest advances in contact lenses in Milton ON. Contact lens fittings are performed by our doctors to ensure healthy eyes, excellent vision, and comfort with your lenses. Every eye has a unique shape and size, and contact lenses should be selected based on the fit, comfort, breathability, material and lifestyle.
We offer contact lenses to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, as well as multifocal contacts that allow for distance and near vision correction. Let us help you find the right contact lenses for you!
A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.
Contact lenses are constantly advancing, and new lens technology is being introduced each year. Whether you are a current contact lens wearer struggling with end of day dryness, or a past contact lens wearer who was told you could not wear contacts because of astigmatism, our optometrists are here to talk to you about your options and keep you up to date on new technology.
We carry the following brands:
Eye Exams for Contact Lenses
A contact lens exam will include both a comprehensive eye exam to check your overall eye health, your general vision prescription and then a contact lens consultation and measurement to determine the proper lens fit.
Daily disposable contact lenses are an increasingly popular alternative, because they are the healthiest option for your eyes, and offer the same crystal clear vision, without the need to ensure proper storage and cleaning at the end of each day. Ask Dr. Klaming, which disposable contacts are best for you.
Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses
Gas Permeable contacts are made of a firm plastic material which allows the passage of oxygen through the lens to your cornea and the front surface of your eye – essentially allowing your eye to “breathe”. This increases comfort, health and safety during contact lens wear. When cared for properly, a pair can last a year or more. This type of contact lens may still be used in certain circumstances, however the vast majority of contact lenses prescribed are soft disposable contact lenses.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
If you are losing the ability to focus on close objects, consider Multifocal contact lenses. They give you added freedom over glasses and they allow you to be able to view any direction – up, down and to the sides – with similar vision.
Contact Lenses for the “Hard-to-Fit” Patient
Conditions like astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes require more time and patience to get the right fit. Make an appointment today for a comprehensive eye examination and discuss whether contacts lenses are right for you!
Toric Contact Lenses for Astigmatism
Don’t let Astigmatism keep you from wearing contact lenses. There are many contact lens options for patients with astigmatism. Dr. Klaming or Dr. Laverty will patiently fit you into the correct Toric lenses for your eyes.
