1st Street & Village Eye Centres only carry contact lenses that our optometrists have confidence to recommend to our patients. Our eye doctors stand behind proven contact lens brands that provide comfort & high-quality vision. In addition, our optometry clinics strive to establish which contacts will best suit their eye care needs & lifestyle. Most noteworthy, fitting the lenses to the patient, this allows all of our patients get exactly what they want and need from prescription contact lenses.

Following your annual eye exam, your optometrist decides which contact lenses best suits your eyes. Our optometry offices in Edmonton & Sherwood Park provide contact lenses for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism & presbyopia. As well, we carry cosmetic coloured lenses. The Doctors will assess your lifestyle, prescription & vision needs to provide you with lenses that offer maximum benefit & comfort. With free contact lense checks, you can be sure your lenses always fit well.

Presbyopia is the inability to focus on near objects that typically occurs after the age of forty. Astigmatism means the irregular curvature of the cornea or lens that results in blurry vision. Our optometrists are able to compensate for that with speciality contact lenses. No matter the severity or complexity of your prescription, we will fit you with the best possible prescription lenses. Our lenses will compensate for & correct your impaired vision.

For New & Returning Contact Lense Wearers

In our contact lens fitting package, you will receive complimentary trial lenses, so that you can feel secure in your choice to purchase contacts. Then, our eye doctors will schedule a follow-up exam to ensure that you are satisfied with the lenses that they have prescribed. The long-term relationships that 1st Street & Village Eye Centre builds with our patients makes it easy to continuously re-evaluate & adjust your prescription contact lenses, enabling you to see optimally for years to come.

At our optometry offices in Edmonton & Sherwood Park We continually work with the most recent improvements in contact lens technology. This includes improved comfort and healthiness of the contact lenses themselves. Since patients with dry eye syndrome or patients with high astigmatism power are now able to successfully wear contact lenses, consider trying them again. So whether you have blurry vision or just want to change the colour of your eye, our doctors will help fit the contacts that are right for you.

1st Street & Village Eye Centres also offer Bausch & Lomb Purevision2 lenses that are designed to provide clear & comfortable vision for 30 days. Purevision2 uses the Aergel material that repels debris and stays moist for the entire day. These contacts are exceptionally healthy as they allow natural amount of oxygen to contact your eyes, so they feel fresh all day long.

Also, our Optometry clinics carry the very popular Air Optix family of lenses from Ciba/Alcon Vision. These are silicone hydrogel contacts designed optimal for breathability and all-day moisture. Ciba Vision created this patented lens material that is perfect for patients who have experienced dry eyes with other contact lenses. At your next optometry appointment, ask if you are a candidate for any of these lense brands.

Our new patient contact lense wearer program has helped many patients enjoy the freedom of contact lenses. It’s never too late to try and enjoy the benefits contact lenses have to offer. Let us know when you want to get started.

  • Disposable contact lenses are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid 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.
  • Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and rigid varieties.
  • These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
  • Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
  • “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
  • This eye disease causes the cornea to grow thinner and bulge forward in an irregular cone-shape. Treatment options range from gas permeable contact lenses to a cornea transplant.
  • Also called nearsightedness, myopia is a very common vision problem, affecting up to one-third of the U.S. population.
