Types of Contact Lenses

Contact Lenses in Calgary can be challenging due to our dry climate, but with years of experience, our doctors will determine the right lens type, material and care system to provide you with all day comfort. We take pride in our expertise in fitting the right contact lenses for your lifestyle and vision needs. Remember, not every “brand” is right for everyone. We discuss which options are best suited to your prescription, eye curvature and lifestyle. They will be professionally fitted to ensure proper tear exchange, oxygen transmission, and compatibility with your unique tear chemistry. We offer the latest technology in contact lenses for astigmatism and progressive contact lenses for clear vision at all distances.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contacts

Rigid gas permeable contacts have been around for decades and offer better optics than soft lenses. They are easy to clean, easy to handle, and last for many years with good care and maintenance. Because they are custom made, almost every vision need can be accommodated. These lenses are also ideal for irregular corneas associated with keratoconus and corneal transplant. Although it takes a few days, patients quickly get used to the feeling of these lenses in their eyes. They are not suitable for sports or those who work in windy, dirty or dusty environments because they are more easily dislodged than soft lenses.
