Contact Lenses Customized To Your Lifestyle

Disposable contact lenses are a great alternative to hard lenses and are generally considered far superior in comfort and wearability. They come in various types with different levels of durability and can be perfect for you depending on your lifestyle. Suppose you are looking to replace your prescription glasses with contact lenses for a special occasion or temporarily for just a few days. In that case, you may find daily disposable contact lenses more convenient. You will only be able to use these lenses for a day.

But if you are looking at contact lenses as a permanent and complete replacement to your prescription glasses, then you may choose bi-weekly and monthly options that you can reuse for longer durations.

Contact Lenses FAQs

Eyewear Experts has been the trusted eye clinic in Red Deer for more than a decade. Here are the most common questions we are asked about contact lenses:

Can I Buy Contact Lenses Over the Counter or Online?

You can buy your lenses over the counter or online if you have a valid prescription and purchase your contact lenses from a trusted source like Eyewear Experts. We would prefer you make with us an eye exam to get the best contact lenses for your needs. Our high-tech on-site laboratory will prepare your results within an hour.

Why Do You Need a Prescription for Contact Lenses in Canada?

Our eyes and vision change over time, so prescriptions become inaccurate and must be updated to enhance your vision correctly. Using lenses with the wrong prescription can strain your eyes, give you headaches and discomfort, make your vision blurry and affect your eye health in the long run.

Can I Use My Eyeglass Prescription for Contact Lenses?

Contact lens and glasses prescriptions are not the same. A contact lens prescription contains information like base curve and diameter, as well as the brand, as it must match the size and shape of your eye. Contacts sit directly on your eye, while glasses rest further from your eyes and are shaped to correct for possible astigmatism. However, contacts must be designed to fit astigmatism. Using your glasses prescription for contact lenses would make them stronger than required, which could cause you discomfort and more vision problems. If you want to switch from prescription glasses to contact lenses, bring your existing prescription and visit Eyewear Experts for a new exam and contact lens fitting.

Can I Order Contact Lenses With an Old Prescription?

Contact lens prescriptions typically expire a year after your eye examination. This is because when you constantly wear lenses, your eyes need to be examined annually to ensure your lenses do not increase your risk of eye infections or hurt the eye. It is recommended that you visit your eye doctor annually to ensure your prescription is up to date and that you use the right lenses to meet your specific needs to eliminate the risk of causing more damage and deterioration to your eyesight. Please don’t try to buy contact lenses with an expired prescription, as it is illegal to sell anyone contact lenses without a valid prescription.
