Is It Time to Give Up Your Glasses?

Contact lenses offer the freedom to see clearly without relying on glasses. Whether you want to go permanently glasses-free or simply leave behind your eyewear for specific occasions, our eye doctors can help. Visit us and consult an optometrist who can help you determine what kind of contacts could be right for you.

Contact Lens Eye Exams

The first step towards acquiring contact lenses is to set up a contact lens eye exam with your eye doctor. Our contact lens eye exams include everything we would normally do in a comprehensive eye exam, with an additional consultation to help us learn about your health and lifestyle needs.

Our contact lens consultation helps us answer several key questions, such as:

  • Would you benefit more from daily disposables or monthly disposable lenses?
  • Would you benefit more from soft contacts or rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses?
  • Do you have any conditions (such as dry eye syndrome or astigmatism) that might affect your comfort wearing certain brands?
  • Do you have any vision problems that could be improved by specific kinds of lenses (for example, multifocal lenses to help with reading)?

Fitting Your Contacts

The next step is to measure your eyes so that we can provide you with contact lenses that fit comfortably and facilitate clear vision. The measurements we take may include:

  • The size of your pupil
  • The size of your iris
  • The curvature of your cornea
  • The relative strength of your tear film

Once we have the information we need to identify lenses that might work best for you, we have you wear a trial pair to confirm they fit comfortably and help you see clearly.

During the trial, your eye doctor will monitor the fit and movement of your contacts. If you are comfortable with your lenses at the end of the trial period, we will order your new lenses for you and provide instructions on how to use them correctly. We will also likely arrange follow-up appointments to ensure your contacts are functioning as expected and make necessary adjustments to your lenses if necessary.

Types of Contact Lenses

Soft contact lenses are typically made from silicone-hydrogel, which allows oxygen to reach your cornea and nourish the eye as you wear them. Many people consider soft contacts a comfortable, convenient, and cost-effective option.

Soft contact lenses come in numerous varieties, including spherical, toric, and multifocal. We can also help determine how frequently you may need to change your contacts to suit your lifestyle. Daily, bi-weekly, and monthly soft contacts are all available through our practice.

Rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses are perfect for those looking for durable contacts that can reliably correct refractive errors like astigmatism. Since these lenses must be specifically designed for individual corneas, they are less commonly prescribed than soft contacts. The durable materials used to create RGP lenses mean that they may only have to be replaced every 2 or 3 years.

Depending on your specific vision needs, you may require contact lenses with other properties. At Bronte Village Eye Care, our eye doctors can recommend numerous specialty lenses, such as:

  • Aspheric lenses: these lenses are specifically shaped to correct spherical aberration. The curvature in these lenses is intended to compensate for the irregular curve in your eye that causes refractive errors like astigmatism.
  • Toric lenses: toric lenses have different prescriptions along their horizontal and vertical axes and are weighted at the bottom to stay properly oriented during blinking. These lenses are designed to correct moderate to severe astigmatism cases by compensating for the prescription differences in each part of your eye.
  • Multifocal lenses: these lenses include different prescriptions in different areas of the lens to help you see clearly at various distances. Think of them as the contact lens equivalent of reading glasses.
