Contact Lenses

At Mission Eye Care, we stay on the cutting edge of contact lens technology to ensure you are fit with the best contact lenses for your unique eyes. Remember, not every “brand” is right for everyone… contact lenses must be professionally fitted to ensure proper tear exchange, proper oxygen transmission, and proper compatibility with your unique tear chemistry, and of course, proper vision! Lens wear in Calgary can be challenging due to our dry climate, but through our years of experience, we will determine the right lens material and care system to provide you with all day comfort.

SOFT CONTACT LENS INSERTION AND REMOVAL (USING MULTIPURPOSE SOLUTION)

ClearCare PEROXIDE BASED DISINFECTION CARE SYSTEM

RIGID GAS PERMEABLE LENS INSERTION, REMOVAL, AND CARE

The doctor will fit you with the contact lenses and solution care system deemed most suitable, and then follow-up to ensure proper fit and compatibility. We have access to ALL manufacturers’ products and will ensure that you are in the right lenses for your prescription, visual demands, and lifestyle. For your convenience, you can also reorder contacts online and have them delivered right to your door!

We also specialize in multifocal lenses for crisp, clear vision at distance, intermediate, and near. There are many new lens technologies including those that work for patients with astigmatism who have never before been able to use a multifocal contact lens! (see Duette Multifocal below)
If you have never worn contact lenses before, we will take the time to train you on the proper insertion, removal and care of your lenses. If you forget any of the instructions from your fitting appointment, we have provided some video links for you here:

And remember to NEVER wear your contacts if your eyes are red or irritated, phone us at 403-440-1234 if you have any questions. We can generally see you the same day if you suspect a problem with your eyes.
