aybe eyeglasses aren’t your thing. Maybe you think they don’t suit your face, your look, your lifestyle. Or maybe you wear glasses, but you’re looking for flexibility in the way you correct your vision. For many people, contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses, and we’ve got you covered.
Dr. Orr, Dr. Brodie and our staff are committed to providing you with the most comprehensive contact lens experience possible. The doctor will determine a contact lens prescription, which is much more detailed than a standard prescription for eyeglasses, in order to ensure optimal vision correction. Our Contact Lens Specialists evaluate all aspects of your individual contact lens needs including desired wear-time, lens comfort and eye health. We deal with trusted brands, and carry many lower-prescription lenses in stock for purchase once your needs have been evaluated.
We perform fittings for new contact lens wearers and refits for current wearers. We offer a range of lens types, including:
Disposable soft contact lenses (daily, bi-weekly and monthly)
Conventional soft contact lenses
Rigid Gas-Permeable (RGP) lenses
Ortho-Keratology lenses (to reshape your cornea and reduce myopia)
Bifocal and progressive lenses (soft and rigid)
Colour / tinted lenses
Lenses for patients with astigmatism
To ensure your long-term success, we schedule regular follow-up appointments which will:
