Contact Lens Exams & Fittings
Just like glasses, contact lenses need to be customized for your unique eyes. That’s why we offer contact lens exams and fittings to make sure your contacts are the perfect fit. We use specialized techniques and equipment to measure your corneal topography, dimensions, and moisture to find the perfect contacts for your eyes.
What Contact Lenses Do We Carry?
We carry almost every type of disposable and specialty lens, so we can offer contact lens options to fit almost every eye. If you’ve had trouble with contact lens discomfort in the past or you’ve been told contact lenses aren’t for you, we likely have a contact lens option to suit your needs.
Unlike conventional contact lenses which are designed to sit on the cornea, scleral contact lenses sit on the sclera, vaulting over the cornea. This design makes scleral contact lenses an option for patients with astigmatism, irregular corneas, or severely dry eyes.
Hybrid lenses are made specifically for patients with astigmatism. These lenses have a rigid gas permeable centre to correct astigmatism, surrounded by a soft lens skirt to improve comfort. The hybrid of materials provides clarity, comfort, and stability for corneas with an irregular shape.
Ortho-K lenses are designed to be worn overnight to control myopia. As you sleep, the lenses gently reshape your corneas to correct your vision. You remove the contacts in the morning and are able to see clearly without contacts or glasses during the day. Ortho-K lenses are suitable for patients who can’t undergo laser eye surgery or as a method of myopia control.
Transition lenses are a brand new technology for contact lenses designed to help manage the amount of harmful UV rays that enter your eye. These contact lenses are a great option for people working or playing sports out in the sun.
Rigid gas permeable lenses are a form of contact lens developed to let oxygen permeate through. Because of the fact they let oxygen through, they can fit on a larger portion of the eye and be fitted closer to the eye.
MiSight 1-Day Lenses from CooperVision are a disposable set of contact lenses that help with slowing the progression of myopia. These contacts are a great option for both children and adults looking to manage their myopia.
SynergEyes boasts a great selection of contact lenses to help patients looking for hybrid or scleral contact lenses.
