Eyeglasses Alternative – Contact Lenses from Sherwood Park Eye Centre

Sherwood Park Eye Centre offers a wide selection of contact lenses including disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric and coloured lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or monthly disposables, check out our selection of lenses that fit your needs.

We provide a thorough eye exam so that your new contacts are prescribed correctly to enhance your vision, and also to detect any conditions that would cause problems with wearing contact lenses. Our exam also allows us to determine the best contact lenses to fit your lifestyle.

During your visit, assuming we have your prescription and fit in stock, you'll be able to try your new contacts immediately and wear them home to make sure your site and comfort are satisfied. We will offer instruction for the proper care and usage of your lenses.

If your new lenses are uncomfortable or don't correct your vision fully, we will follow up with you to find the right lens for you.

Eye Exams for Contact Lenses

A routine exam won't provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx. That’s why we offer exams tailored specifically for those wishing to use contact lenses.

Bifocal & Multifocal Contact Lenses

If you need correction for presbyopia but dislike the idea of bifocal eyeglasses, you can find many contact lens options at Sherwood Park Eye Centre.

Gas-Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses

Gas-permeable lenses are more rigid and thus less popular as soft lenses, but they are more durable, provide more crisp vision and allow your eyes to breathe better.

Contact Lenses for the "Hard-to-Fit" Patient

Certain eye conditions – namely astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes – used to provide barriers to wearing contact lenses, but with advancements in technology, that is no longer so. That said, it may take more time to find the right fit for your eyes.
