New to Contact Lenses?
More than three million people across the Canada enjoy the benefits of wearing contact lenses and it’s not hard to see why. Offering the freedom from wearing glasses, contact lenses look more natural, provide an unobstructed view, are unlikely to get lost and are not affected by fogging or rain.
Regardless of whether you are long or short sighted or even have astigmatism, almost everyone who needs eyesight correction can now wear contact lenses. There are also bifocal or multifocal options for those who need different lens powers for distance and close work or only have reading glasses.
With various different ways of wearing contact lenses, you will be able to find the perfect solution to all your eye care needs. In fact, most people find that once they are used to their new lenses, they are so convenient and easy to use that they forget they’re even wearing them. From daily, two-weekly, monthly and continuous wear lenses, there is something to suit all eyes and budgets.
With no solutions, no lens cases and no hassle required, it’s easy to see why daily disposables are one of the most popular choices amongst contact lens wearers. By simply throwing away your lenses at the end of the day and starting with a fresh pair the next, it really couldn’t be easier.
Many opticians believe that daily disposables are the healthiest contact lenses for your eyes and are also a great choice for those who are prone to allergies as they avoid the day-to-day build up of dust, pollen and other irritants. Daily disposables are especially convenient and economical for individuals who only want to wear their lenses part time and are ideal for sport, going out and travelling.
Available in a wide range of prescriptions from standard myopia and torics for astigmatism through to verifocal and coloured dailies, daily disposables are well suited to most users. However, in the event that your eyes are not suited to daily disposables, two week and monthly disposables are an alternative option.
Bi-weekly contact lenses can be worn daily for up to two weeks and are removed every night so they can be cleaned and stored in the recommended solution.
One of the biggest advantages of bi-monthly lenses is that they are easy to order and store as you only need new lenses every other week. They are also much more cost effective than daily disposables if you wear your lenses frequently as you won’t need to open a new set every day.
The advanced materials that are found in monthly disposable contact lenses allow significantly more oxygen into the eye, making them more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time.
These soft contact lenses are worn daily for up to one month and are removed each night so they can be cleaned and stored in the recommended solution. Re-usable lenses are more cost effective than daily disposables for those who wear their lenses every, or almost every day.
Contact lenses can be used for cosmetic purposes as well as for correcting eyesight. Those who have a desire to change the colour or appearance of their eyes can benefit from coloured lenses.
