Contact Lens Exams

Getting a contact lens exam is a crucial first step for determining which type of contact lenses are suited to your needs. During the exam, we measure your eye’s shape, size, and curvature to find the right fit for your lenses. We may also assess your tear film to determine whether your contact lenses need to be selected with conditions like dry eye in mind.

Finding the Right Fit

We offer a variety of contact lenses to meet your unique needs, including RGP (rigid gas-permeable) lenses and scleral lenses.

RGP (Rigid Gas-Permeable) Lenses

RGP lenses are a type of hard contact lens made from durable plastic materials that allow oxygen to pass through. These lenses are often used for individuals with high astigmatism, keratoconus, and other corneal conditions. RGP lenses can offer excellent vision quality for a variety of needs.

Scleral lenses are larger in size and rest on the sclera (the white part of your eye) instead of the cornea. These lenses are also made from gas-permeable materials and can be ideal for patients with keratoconus, dry eye, or people who have had refractive surgery. Scleral lenses can provide wonderful visual clarity, stability, and comfort.

Our experienced optometrists will work closely with you to determine which type of contact lens suits your needs and lifestyle. We also carry a wide range of contact lens brands, so you can find the right fit for your vision and comfort needs.

The Fitting Process

Once we’ve determined the right type of contact lens, the fitting process begins. We can provide you with a trial pair to wear for a few days to test for proper fit and comfort. During this time, we will evaluate your eyes for any signs of irritation or discomfort. If your lenses fit well, you’ll be able to order your new contacts and start enjoying the clear vision they provide!

Choosing the Right Brand

With so many brands out there, it can be overwhelming to choose the right contact lenses. We can recommend a brand for your eyes based on your prescription, lifestyle, and preferences.

Some of the popular brands we offer at Airdrie Family Eye Doctors include:

  • Acuvue 
  • Cooper Vision 
  • Alcon
  • Bausch & Lomb
  • NaturalVue
  • Viscon

Maintenance & Care

Taking care of your contact lenses is crucial for preventing infections and maintaining a comfortable fit. We take the time to provide instructions on how to clean and store your lenses properly. It’s essential to follow these instructions carefully and avoid wearing your lenses longer than recommended.

It’s also important to attend regular checkups to monitor the health of your eyes and assess any changes that may require a different type of contact lens. Properly maintaining and caring for your contact lenses can help you enjoy clear, comfortable vision without compromising your eye health.
