Colored contact lenses are a fun way to change up your look. From the most subtle enhancement to a complete eye color change we carry the most popular brands. Colored contacts are available with or without prescription.
Disposable contact lenses offer the ultimate in convenience and hygiene. Available in daily, bi-weekly or monthly wearing schedules, disposable lenses will spoil you with the comfort and practicality they provide.
Knowing your Lenses
Contact lenses are a medical device, and a poorly fitted lens — or one made from a material not well-suited to your eyes — can cause distorted vision, discomfort, infection, inflammation, swelling and abrasion. In rare cases, permanent eye tissue damage could result. Your contact lens prescription contains specific information to ensure your contact lenses are safe, comfortable and provide optimum vision. Here at Illusion Eyewear & Eyecare in Mississauga we guarantee that our contact lenses do just that.
Help for New Wearers
Healthy contact lens patients are our priority. Our opticians understand the importance of teaching proper insertion and removal techniques. Below are some tips that may help new wearers:
1 Gently shake your lens case containing the storage solution, to loosen the contact lens should it be stuck - Don’t try pulling at the lens with your finger, or you might damage it.
2 Slide the lens out of its case and into the palm of your hand. Rinse thoroughly with the appropriate contact lens solution.
3 Place the contact lens on the tip of your index or middle finger, which should be dry or mostly dry.
4 With the fingers and thumb of your other hand, simultaneously pull up on your upper eyelid and down on your lower eyelid, try to place the contact lenses directly on the iris or on the white of the eye. Look towards the lenses to centre it. Closing your eye gently for a few seconds will stabilize the lens.
5 Position the lens on your eye while looking upward or forward, whichever you find to be easier. You also can apply the contact lens by placing it on the white of the eye closest to your ear.
6 Gently close your eye, roll your eyes in a complete circle to help the lens settle, and then blink.
7 Look closely in the mirror to make sure the lens is centered on your eye. If it is, the lens should be comfortable and your vision should be clear.
