There are several benefits that come with wearing contact lenses.
Contact lenses are much more discreet than glasses. No heavy frames on your face, marks on your nose or fogging in the humidity or in the winter.
Contact lenses are convenient. They do not need to be cleaned during the day. They are also easier to wear than glasses during physical activity. As long as you follow the storage and cleaning instructions, you should enjoy a problem-free vision correction from contacts.
alternative to surgery
If you require corrective lenses but you do not want to wear glasses, contacts are your best choice outside of laser surgery.
Contact lenses are not only convenient, they are also affordable. When you come in for a contact lens fitting, we encourage discussing your budget with the optometrist so the doctor can select a lens that fits your price-point and lifestyle. Optometrists at Rideau Optometric are happy to help you find an option that is both healthy and affordable for you!
available in multiple options
Many patients believe that contacts will not be available in their prescription. With advances in technology, contact lenses are available in may prescriptions to satisfy a wide range of needs. Contact lenses can correct a wide range of issues including high astigmatism to multifocal prescriptions. Lenses come in daily, bi-weekly and monthly disposal schedules!
easy to insert
At Rideau Optometric, we truly value the health and safety of your eyes. As a new wearer, our technicians will teach you proper insertion and removal techniques. We are happy to help previous wearers still having difficulty with insertion and removal as well. With some guidance and practice, wearing contact lenses becomes a breeze.
