Comfort & Clarity with Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a more flexible alternative to glasses and a less permanent alternative to laser eye surgery. Contacts sit directly on the eyes, and since everyone’s eyes are different, there’s no one-size-fits-all option. If you’ve never worn contact lenses before, you’ll need an eye exam and fitting to ensure contacts will continue to keep your eyes clear and comfortable.

Our eye doctors in Wainwright, AB provide comprehensive contact lens exams and fittings to provide you with a personalized solution based on your unique lifestyle, vision needs, and eye shape. If you’re interested in contact lenses, or if you currently wear contact lenses, please give us a call and schedule a contact lens exam.

The Importance of a Contact Lens Exam & Fitting

Poorly fitted contact lenses are more than just irritating. They can lead to vision disruptions, eye irritation, corneal infections, and other complications. To ensure your contacts are comfortable and custom-fitted to your eyes, we take several measurements of your uniquely-shaped eyes, evaluate your tear quality and quantity, and discuss your needs, lifestyle, and habits. 

We’ll set you up with a trial pair of lenses so you can test your new contacts “in the wild” and we will show you how to insert, remove, and care for them. 

The first choice isn’t always the best one, so you may need to try more than one contact lens to find something that works best for you. It’s essential you find a pair of contacts that you enjoy wearing and feel comfortable with.

Types of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses have changed a lot since their invention in 1887. Contacts provide advanced vision solutions, come in various material types, and are easier to wear than ever before. Our optometrists at Prairie Vision are specialists at fitting contact lenses and can fit most prescriptions. 

We carry a wide selection of contact lens types and styles to ensure we can find an ideal fit for nearly anyone:

  • Daily, biweekly, and monthly disposable lenses
  • Myopia control lenses
  • Rigid gas permeable lenses
  • Specialty contacts for astigmatic patients and unique prescriptions
  • Bifocal, multifocal, and monovision contacts for presbyopia
  • Scleral contacts for corneal transplants, scarred corneas, and keratoconus
  • Contact lenses to relieve eye strain
  • Coloured contact lenses

How to Prepare for Your Contact Lens Eye Exam

  • Bring your Alberta Personal Health Card
  • Bring your current glasses and sunglasses
  • If you are already a contact lens wearer, please wear your contact lenses to your appointment & bring your current glasses
  • Bring a list of any medications you are currently taking
  • If you have third-party insurance, check your coverage and bring your plan information

Trust Prairie Vision with Your Eyes
