Are Contacts Right for Me?

If you live an active lifestyle, or maybe want to change up your look from glasses, contact lenses are a great option for you. We carry contact lenses that provide crisp sight to patients with all kinds of eye conditions and vision requirements. At University Vision Centre, our talented, multi-lingual team ensures every patient leaves seeing clearly and comfortably with their contacts.

Precise and Personalized Contact Lenses

When it comes to contacts, the perfect fit is everything — and it starts with our advanced diagnostics and measurement technologies, such as the sMap3D™ corneal and scleral topographer. Whether you need advanced scleral lenses, hybrid lenses that hold up to even the most intense athletic training, or anything in between, our doctors will ensure that you leave your contact lens exam with crystal-clear sight. Say goodbye to ill-fitting lenses that irritate your eyes when you choose University Vision Centre for a thorough contact lens exam and fitting!

Our Large Selection of Lenses

We’ve examined thousands of eyes, and having seen for ourselves that no two pairs are alike means we’re keenly aware of the importance of finding the right contact lenses for you. That’s why we’re proud to offer a diverse selection of lens options for a variety of vision needs, including specialty contacts for those who have “hard-to-fit” eyes due to conditions like keratoconus or astigmatism. From dailies and monthlies for you to advanced myopia management technology to keep your child’s myopia (nearsightedness) under control, we’ve got the whole family covered.

Soft Lenses

Soft contact lenses are a great option for those seeking comfortable vision that can help correct myopia, hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. We have choices to suit your supply needs, including convenient daily disposables and monthlies that last.

Emergency Eyecare

RGP Lenses

Rigid gas-permeable lenses (RGP) allow oxygen to pass through the eye, with patients finding them more breathable than daily disposable soft lenses. These lenses require a bit more maintenance, but are a great, durable option for those with dry eyes and other conditions that affect the front of the eye. If you’re looking for lenses that last up to a month with diligent care, RGP lenses are a wonderful choice!

Surgery Co-Management

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are larger and have a special shape that arcs over the thin membrane on the front of your eye, known as the cornea, and instead hugging the white part of your eye, or sclera. Because of their structure, these lenses are great for those with dry eye, keratoconus, or corneal injuries and sensitivities that do not allow contacts to sit directly on the front of the eye.

Surgery Co-Management

Ortho-K Lenses

Ortho-K is an innovative contact lens technology designed to slow the progression of myopia in children. Worn overnight, they gently reshape the cornea to correct its length, resulting in better vision in the morning, and limiting the need for eyewear in some patients. The lifestyle flexibility afforded by Ortho-K is just one of the reasons we include these lenses in our myopia management programs for your little one!

Surgery Co-Management

Hybrid Lenses

If you regularly perform high intensity exercise or participate in sports, hybrid lenses are a wonderful option to correct your vision. Their unique construction combines an RGP center with a gel-like outer portion, providing high levels of visual clarity with all the comfortable benefits of soft lenses. Other patients who might be best served by hybrids are those with astigmatism, or those who find traditional RGP lenses uncomfortable or harder to wear.

Surgery Co-Management

Amniotic Membranes

Though not contact lenses in the traditional sense, amniotic membranes perform similar functions as specialty lenses for patients with cornea conditions or ocular injuries, but use a special design better suited to those who need advanced healing. Our practice is unique in that we carry amniotic membranes like the PROKERA® corneal bandage. These innovative tools can reduce inflammation caused by ocular surface disease and other issues to rejuvenate your eyes without invasive procedures.
