We aim to provide the perfect contact lenses for your prescription and your lifestyle.
Whether it is for full or part time wear, contact lenses are a great option to correct most people's vision. The doctors at Romeo Optometry are skilled at fitting soft or gas permeable lenses to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or multifocal lenses for people who require bifocals. Most lenses are disposable ranging from single use to 30 days of wear. We source lenses from a number of suppliers in Canada and internationally to provide the best lenses for your particular vision problem.
The first step is a thorough eye exam to determine if your eyes are suitable for contacts and determine an up to date prescription. People with severe allergies, uncontrolled dry eyes or recurring eye infections are not suitable candidates.
The next step is a contact lens fitting appointment when trial lenses will be used to find the best fit and the best vision. At this visit, first time contact lens wearers will have a training session to teach insertion, removal and proper cleaning and handling of the lenses. You will leave that day with the trial lenses and be booked for follow up usually after 1 to 2 weeks. If the lenses are comfortable and the vision is clear we will order your first year's supply of contact lenses. If not, don't be discouraged, we will try different trial contact lenses to find the best vision and most comfortable fit.
New technology in contact lenses has opened the door to many patients who previously did not have contacts as an option. Other patients with specific eye disease such as keratoconus, cannot see well with glasses and require custom designed contact lenses. The doctors at Romeo Optometry fit specialty contact lenses such custom soft toric lenses, custom gas permeable lenses and scleral lenses to meet those patient's needs.
Scleral contact lenses are large and rest on the white of the eye or sclera therefore vaulting over the cornea and creating a tear filled space. These lenses can mask corneal irregularities as is the case in keratoconus or can provide relief for patients suffering from dry eye by ensuring constant hydration of the cornea.
The doctors at Romeo Optometry would be happy to talk to you and determine if you are a candidate for specialty contact lenses.
