Disposable Contacts

Disposable soft contact lenses are extremely popular these days. They are superior in comfort and wearability. They come in many different varieties, and it is important to know which is best for you. Children as young as 8 years of age can be fit with contact lenses are are very successful. Daily disposable lenses are the contact lens of choice for younger ages. Gas permeable lenses last longer but initial adaptation to comfort also takes longer. These are the most economical. New scleral contact lenses are now available for patients that have found contact lenses unwearable for vision or comfort in the past.

Bi-Weekly and Monthly Contact Lenses

Monthly and bi-weekly disposable contact lenses require more upkeep than daily disposables, requiring daily cleaning and storage in proper contact lens solution. They are more economical than daily disposable lenses as you only wear 12 pairs over the year instead of 365. Additionally, monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses offer the possibility of extended wear, which allows up to 30 days of continuous day and night contact lens wear, without the necessity of taking them out.

Daily Disposables

Although more expensive than monthly and bi-weekly contacts, daily disposable contact lenses are an increasingly popular alternative, because they offer the same crystal clear vision, without the need to ensure proper storage and cleaning at the end of each day. Daily disposables allow contact lens wearers the ability to simply throw away each day’s pair of contacts before bed, and open a brand new pair the very next day to enjoy the benefits and comfort of clean, clear, crisp contact lenses. Dangerous calcium or hairspray deposits, normally associated with bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses, are no longer an issue, and the chances of developing contact lens related eye infections, normally associated with monthly and bi-weekly contact lenses, become almost a non-issue.

Contact lenses correct nearsighted, farsighted eyes, astigmatism, and bifocal prescriptions. Monthly lenses are available in fashion tints to enhance or change your eye colour. New Transitions (TM) contact lenses give you a sunglass tint when you are outdoors!

Some changes and guidelines we have made:

-You can expect to see each staff member in PPE and we ask that you wear a mask when entering the building to protect yourself and others. Without a mask or covering you will not be permitted to enter.

- Please call and book all appointments including frame selections and adjustments/repairs, we would prefer not to have any walk ins at this time.

- If our doors are locked and you come for an appointment it means we have too many people in the building, please call us and let us know you are there or wait for someone to exit and try the door again.

- We will not be lending out frames at this time but you are welcome to take selfies and share with your friends while you pick your frames. We also love sharing our opinions and are happy to assist you.

- Please come to appointments alone whenever possible, we are limited on the amount of people we can have in the building at one time.

- Please practise physical distancing.

 

Thank you for your patience as we try to reopen and adapt to the new guidelines
