Contact lenses / eye lenses in Montreal
Contact lenses are often chosen for their discretion and practicality, especially among sportspersons. Georges Laoun Optician's eye care professionals are there to guide you in choosing the right contacts according to your needs. Eye contact lenses, as do glasses, provide their user with an excellent vision. They are a possible solution for the replacement or complement of eyeglass frames.
Come and meet us in one of our Montreal shops to ask our optometrists if contact lenses may be a good option for you. Some side effects need to be avoided, especially if you work in a dusty environment or if you suffer from allergies. Some medical conditions may also be incompatible with wearing contacts: diabetes, several forms of arthritis and hyperthyroidism are the most common. Your eyes may also be drier than most people's. In all cases, it is best to check with one of our eye care experts.
Corrective & cosmetic eye lenses
Contact lenses' popularity comes from their many perks. The corrective lens is placed directly on the cornea of the eye, and may allow for a better vision correction than glasses whose frames may obstruct the view or be somewhat cumbersome. Virtually all vision defects can be corrected with contact lenses, including farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. The contact lens is not affected by the weather, it does not fog nor interfere with the field of vision. That is why they are favored by many sportspersons.
Some opt for contacts for cosmetic reasons. Without any eyeglass frame, the beauty of your eyes may be highlighted, especially if the eyeglasses used in the frame have a distorting effect on the actual size of the eyes. There are also cosmetic contact lenses, designed to change the appearance of the eye. These special eye contact lenses can also be prescription made and correct your vision. These lenses can give the iris every possible colors, even the most unusual!
Contact lenses require adaptation. The adjustment period varies depending on the use of soft or hard contact lenses. They also require regular care with the appropriate liquid solution. Our eye care specialists in our Montreal shops will guide you on the type of contact lenses that suits you. They will explain to you in great details the methods for their cleaning and disinfection. These few minutes of regular care is the key to keeping your eyes healthy.
