Contact Lens Exams & Fittings

Everyone’s eyes are different and so are their visual needs. As a result, an individual’s eyes can react differently to contact lenses, making a comprehensive eye exam and fitting an important part of the process for safely wearing contact lenses. Barrhaven Optometric Centre and Manotick Optometric Centre are committed to helping you find the perfect contact lenses for you and your eyes.

Getting Your Contact Lenses

Step 1: Contact Lens Exam

Before we can prescribe you a pair of contact lenses, we will need to examine your eyes. During your exam, we will look for any eye conditions that could impact your ability to wear contact lenses, as well as determine your contact lens prescription. Your contact lens prescription is different than your eyeglass prescription.

Once we have determined that your eyes are suitable for contact lenses, we will measure your eyes to find lenses that fit you properly. Different types of contact lens fit differently, so we need to determine which style of contact lens will offer you the most comfort, stability and clarity.

We will send you home with trial lenses. You will use these sample lenses at home in your own life to determine if they are meeting your needs and fitting comfortably. Once you have had a chance to experience contacts, we will do a follow-up visit to ensure you are satisfied and your eyes are adapting well to the fit.

Some prescriptions are more complex than others; rest assured, the doctors of Barrhaven & Manotick Optometric Centres are well-equipped to fit even the most challenging cases.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Some eyes require specialty contact lenses to meet their vision and comfort needs. Barrhaven Optometric is proud to offer a wide variety of specialty lenses including:

  • Toric Contact Lenses. Toric lenses are used to correct astigmatism. Unlike spherical contact lenses, toric lenses are made with different prescriptions along the horizontal and vertical axes of the lens. Since toric lenses must be orientated in a specific manner, they are designed so they don’t rotate throughout the day.
  • Multifocal Contact Lenses. As the name suggests, multifocal lenses offer different levels of correction within the same lens. They are commonly used to correct presbyopia: a condition that occurs as we age that affects our ability to focus on near objects. They work similarly to bifocal or multifocal eyeglasses.
  • Myopia Control Contact Lenses. MiSight®️ is the world’s first 1-day soft contact lens clinically proven to substantially slow the progression of myopia in children.
  • Scleral Contact Lenses. Scleral lenses are made of a gas permeable material and cover the entire white of the eye (the sclera). They are usually recommended for patients with irregular corneas or those who suffer from dry eyes.
  • Aspheric Contact Lenses. Traditional spherical contact lenses are uniformly curved across their surface, which may cause light to scatter when it hits your retina, creating more than one focal point. Aspheric lenses have a gradient curve, which causes the light to bend towards a unified focal point, resulting in sharper vision.
