Contact Lenses and Fittings
Pick up your contact lens order in store or have it delivered straight to you!
We fit and dispense the latest contact lens brands, types, and technologies. Contact lenses are regulated medical devices that need to be prescribed by an optometrist or optician. For new wearers, contact lenses can be a convenient alternative to prescription glasses. The process beings with a comprehensive eye exam. Then, to prescribe lenses that are right for you, we will conduct a fitting to test different lenses and how they fit and feel on your eyes. Our fitting services will train you to insert, remove, and care for your contact lenses. Afterwards, we will schedule follow-up examinations to ensure that your lenses are right for you. If you have any issues with the prescribed lenses, we will happily change them and try other types until to a better fit, and we are happy to change them if there are any issues. The cost of a fitting varies depending on the types of contacts and your experience wearing them.
Each contact lens has a unique design, size (base curve and diameter), and material compositions. Because everyone’s eyes are different, there is no one ‘magic pair’ that works for everyone. We offer a variety of contact lenses, including single vision, astigmatism/toric, multifocal/presbyopia, dailies, extended wear, myopia control, and extended power lenses. For existing contact lens wearers, new technologies continuously improve the comfort, eye health impact, and types of lenses offered. Talk to your optometrist to learn more about the latest materials and technologies available.
If your prescription changes before you have used up your supply, we will happily exchange any remaining lenses. As well, all contacts purchased from us are covered under our warranty policy. You can return any lenses within 1 year in exchange for store credit, as long as they have at least 1 year until their expiry date. This warranty excludes ‘made-to-order’ specialty contact lenses.
Every Contact Counts - Contact Lens Recycling
Did you know that every year, more than 290 million contact lenses end up in Canadian landfills or waterways? Bausch + Lomb has partnered with TerraCycle to bring the Every Contact Counts program – a national recycling program for Bausch + Lomb and other brands of contact lenses and blister packs! Currently, contact lenses and blister packs are non-recyclable through municipal facilities because they’re too small to be captured by standard sorting machinery.
Tonic Eye Care & Vision Therapy is proud to participate in this exciting program by offering a recycling collection bin. Simply collect your used contact lenses and blister packs in any reusable or single use container or bag, and drop them off at our clinic! Make sure all excess liquids (e.g. contact lens solution) are removed and the products are dry. Please do not include the cardboard boxes as these are recyclable through regular municipal recycling.
Be the change you wish to see, and take part with us! For more information, visit everycontactcounts.ca.
