Contact Lenses - Fittings & Trainings

If you are interested in trying contact lenses for the first time or you are a seasoned contact lens wearer who just wants to try a different brand, talk to your eye-bar optometrist during your next eye exam. Whether you want contact lenses for sports, school, work, or just occasional wear we can help you find a contact lens that is compatible with your lifestyle. Contact lenses can be a safe and effective vision correction alternative to eyeglasses and are a fraction of the cost of laser eye surgery.

It’s important to know thought that the prescription you receive for your eyeglasses is different then the prescription you require for your contact lenses. Your optometrist will need to take additional measurements including corneal curvature, corneal diameter and eyelid positioning in order to determine the best contact lenses for your eyes.

Contact Lens Fitting & Training Steps:

  1. You will need to have an up to date eye examination (no more then 12 months old) to ensure your eyes are healthy and your vision prescription is accurate. 
  2. An eye-bar optometrist will take some ocular measurements to determine which contact lenses are best suited for your eyes. These measurements along with your lifestyle considerations will be used to select the initial set of trial contact lenses.
  3. For new contact lens wears, an eye-bar optometrist or optometric assistant will train you on the proper technique on how to handle, insert, remove and care for your new contact lenses. A brief reminder will also be provided to seasoned contact lens wearers to ensure that their skills are up to date.
  4. If the initial contact lens fit and vision are ok, you will be asked to wear the new contact lenses for approximately 1-2 weeks. You will be booked in for a contact lens evaluation approximately 1-2 weeks to ensure that everything is working properly.
  5. If your contact lenses are fitting perfectly at your follow up visit and your eyes are healthy and comfortable then your optometrist will approve you to order your contact lenses.
  6. Like all prescriptions, contact lens prescriptions expire after 1 year and contact lens wearers are required to have a new complete eye health examination at that time to ensure that their eyes are healthy and happy.
