CONTACTS ARE FUN,
CONTACTS ARE MEDICAL DEVICES
Ocular and corneal assessments are important when determining the correct contact lens. Using results from refraction and corrective lens analysis, your eye doctor will be able to provide you with a contact lens prescription.
This prescription is different from your eyeglasses prescription because, while eyeglass lenses are positioned approximately 12 millimeters away from your eyes, contacts sit directly on the surface of the eyes. An improper fitting or inaccurate contact lens prescription may cause damage to the health of your eyes and poor vision.
Once your eye care provider has determined the best lens for you, your contact lenses will be ordered, you will be provided with care and hygiene instructions, how long to wear them, and how to store them.
Your Prairie Eye Care Optometrist and Trained Contact Lens Fitter, are experienced in fitting a variety of types of contact lenses:
soft lenses and RGP/ rigid contact lenses, coloured contact lenses and specialty multifocal/ bifocal contacts for seeing distance and near.
