Different types of contact lenses

There are different types of contact lenses available that can provide the vision correction you need and address certain conditions.

  • Soft Contact Lenses - Soft contact lenses are available in single-use, two-week, and monthly replacement modalities. Doig Optometry provides patients with all major contact lens brands.
  • Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses - For those patients where rigid, gas-permeable contact lenses (RGPs) still give advantages over soft contact lenses, Doig Optometry offers RGP contact lens assessment and fittings.
  • Specialty Contact Lenses - Patients with Keratoconus or other conditions of the cornea which affect contact lens function can benefit from the use of specialty contact lenses. These customized contact lens designs use materials and strategies specifically matched to the patient’s condition. If you have Keratoconus or another corneal condition requiring specialty contact lens fitting, please inform us when you book your appointment.

What to expect during a contact lens exam

There are many online options to purchase contact lenses from various retail suppliers. However, these retail suppliers are not optometrists or eye specialists. Purchasing contact lenses online comes with the risk of receiving ill-fitting lenses.

The wrong fit and type of contact lenses can be uncomfortable and can cause serious injury or infections that require surgery. At Doig Optometry, we are professional eye doctors and we take the time to complete a thorough contact lens fitting to find the proper fit and the right contact lens type for you.

During a contact lens exam, we assess the health of your eyes and measure your prescription. We take measurements of your eye to determine the best style of contact lenses for you. We will also identify any conditions that may require specialty contact lenses. If you’re a first-time contact lens wearer, our eye doctors will teach you how to put your lenses in and how to care for your contact lenses.

Quality contact lenses in Calgary

Contact lenses have become a very popular and accessible form of vision correction today. Our eye doctors genuinely care about your eye health and preserving your vision for as long as possible. Damage to the eye and serious infections can be a devastating journey to go through - after all, we use our eyes everyday and we don’t realize just how much we rely on our vision until an issue arises.

When you choose Doig Optometry for contact lenses, we take the time to educate you on proper contact lens wear and care and how poor habits can affect corneal health. Education is empowerment and we want all of our patients to make informed decisions when it comes to their vision care.

Book your next contact lens fitting with us. We look forward to giving you the best possible eye-care experience in Calgary!
