3 Ways Your Optometrist Can Help With All Your Eyewear Needs

Are you wondering why it’s important to visit your Calgary eye doctor? From comprehensive eye exams to helping you choose the right pair of eyeglasses, here are 4 ways your optometrist can help take care of all your ocular needs.

Clear and comfortable vision is an important part of living a healthy and happy life, yet so many people take their eyesight and eye health for granted. Although getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses can help you see better, there really is no substitute for healthy eyes.

Some of the simple steps you can take to protect your eye health include:

  • Scheduling regular eye exams with your Calgary eye doctor
  • Eating a balanced diet and practicing healthy lifestyle habits (eg. quit smoking)
  • Understanding your family’s history of eye disease
  • Wearing sunglasses when outside to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays
  • Wearing protective eyewear when playing sports or performing other physical activities

3 Eyewear Needs Your Calgary Optometrist Can Help With

Whether you’re looking for a new pair of eyeglasses, or you want to try contact lenses for the first time, our team of highly qualified Calgary eye doctors have the expertise, knowledge, and experience to help fulfil all your eyewear needs.

Here are 3 ways our optometrists can help with your eyewear requirements:

1. They Can Help You Choose The Right Frame

Today, eyeglasses are more than just a solution for vision problems; they have also become a fashion accessory for patients of all ages. Eyeglasses that provide good vision, but lack comfort, aesthetic appeal, and style, often end up in a drawer.

At our Calgary eye clinic, we offer premium optical care, including eye exams and high quality, trendy frames for all face shapes and sizes, as well as all lifestyle, occupational, and recreational needs.

During your appointment, your eye doctor will:

  • Explain how various frames and lenses will impact your vision
  • Help you select the right frame for your face shape and size, as well as for your skin tone.
  • Help you select the right pair of lenses for your needs
  • Ensure you purchase a pair of eyeglasses whose fit and functionality work best for you


2. They’ll Help You Find The Right Pair of Sunglasses

Did you know that the UV rays and glare created by the sun can harm your vision and cause a number of issues, such as a higher risk of developing AMD, cataracts, and other irreversible disorders that threaten your vision.

In some cases, overexposure to UV rays can:

  • Cause cataracts, which will affect your vision
  • Cause changes in eye tissues
  • Lead to temporary sunburn that will leave your eyes irritated
  • Increase your risk of retinal damage

Consider Polarized Lenses

At our Calgary eye clinic, our eye doctors can help fit you with high quality and authentic sunglasses, with a polarized lens based on your prescription.

You may want to consider buying sunglasses with polarized lenses because they will:

  • Reduce glare and haze, making your vision clearer
  • Help you see better, especially when driving
  • Make images sharper and clearer
  • Increase visual clarity and comfort

Often, polarized lenses are recommended for tasks such as driving, jogging, golfing, and skiing. We can offer these lenses in a variety of colours and prescriptions to suit your needs and personal style.

3. They’ll Teach You How to Wear Contact Lenses

At our Calgary eye clinic, we offer only the highest quality ocular care and our optometrists are dedicated to protecting the health of your eyes. If you are considering switching to contact lenses, then we offer comprehensive contact lens fittings to:

  • Help determine which contact lens will provide optimum comfort for you
  • Teach you how to wear your contact lenses
  • Advise you on how to look after your contact lenses
  • Determine if you have dry eyes or allergies that might make wearing contact lenses less comfortable
