Contact Lens Exam & Fittings

Toronto Centre Optometry Finds & Fits the Right Contacts For You

The world of contact lenses can be overwhelming. Do contact lenses work for everyone? Are all contact lenses basically the same? How do you know which lenses are the right choice for you? You tried contact lenses once, and found them uncomfortable; are there any other options?

We at Toronto Centre Optometry are here to guide you through the contact lens process, and help you find the lenses that work best for you. Request an appointment for your contact lens exam today.

We Offer a Wide Variety of Speciality Contact Lenses

Thanks to modern technology, contact lenses now offer levels of functionality reaching beyond a single level of magnification. There are a number of speciality contact lenses, each with specific features and functions. We carry a variety of speciality contact lenses so we can offer you the best and most comfortable contact fit for you.

Scleral Lenses

Many people are under the impression that they cannot wear contact lenses due to the shape of their eyes. This is not necessarily true; in many cases, they simply have not found the right type of contact lenses.

Typical contact lenses just cover the cornea; the clear structure in front of your iris. Scleral lenses, however, cover the part of the sclera (the white part of the eye). Because scleral lenses cover more surface, they are more sturdy and less likely to slip or fall out. This makes them an excellent choice for patients with hard-to-fit eyes.

Where patients with myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) have difficulty seeing clearly at specific distances, patients with astigmatism experience some degree of blurriness at all distances. Toric contact lenses are an excellent option for astigmatic patients.

Because toric lenses must be properly positioned in order to work, they often feature a small weighted area. This ensures the lenses stay in the correct orientation throughout the day.

Myopia (or nearsightedness) is becoming more and more common among children. While adult myopia does not often change, childhood myopia tends to grow more severe as the child ages. Research suggests that regular eye strain can contribute to the progression of myopia. The good news is that multifocal contact lenses can reduce the instances of eye strain, and slow down the progression of myopia.

Multifocal lenses offer different levels of magnification, much like toric lenses. The difference is, where toric lenses typically have more distinct lines between each level, multifocal lenses offer more of a gradient.

While glasses may correct a myopic child’s distance vision, it may actually lead to further nearsightedness. This means activities such as copying notes from a whiteboard could contribute to the eye strain linked to myopia. Multifocal lenses offer clear vision at any distance, allowing your child to more smoothly transition between near work and far work.

Multifocal lenses are also an option for patients experiencing presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs when the lens loses flexibility with age. This leaves the lens unable to focus on close-up objects. Often this occurs in conjunction with myopia, requiring the patient to seek correction for both near and far vision.
