Soft contact lenses
Contact lenses provide you with the freedom to move without being held back. Unlike glasses, they move with your eye and give a full field of naturally focused vision. Perfect for athletes, active people, or for the right look on a night out. As a bonus, you don’t have to worry about losing or forgetting your glasses!
The most popular choice of contacts is soft contact lenses. Theygenerally feel more comfortable to wear than the rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses because of the soft moist and flexible designs that allow oxygen to pass through the cornea. Newer soft lens materials include silicone hydrogels that provide even more oxygen to your eyes.
Who is suitable for soft contact lenses?
Soft contacts can correct the following vision problems:
- Age-related loss of close-up vision (presbyopia)
What are the benefits of soft contact lenses?
Soft contact lenses are easier to adjust to than hard lenses. Because of the larger size, they cover the cornea and stay put better. Making them less susceptible to dust and other foreign objects crawling under the lens. The flexible soft lens allows oxygen to pass through to the cornea and increases comfort and maintains good eye health.
Soft contact lenses have their disadvantages too. They are less durable than harder lenses and aremore susceptible to deposits. This is why they are also generally more expensive as they usually require more frequent replacements.

At our offices in Brampton and Mississauga,we offer different modalities based on your needs, wearing schedule and budget such as monthly, weekly, daily disposables We also still fit conventional reusable contact lensed.
Soft daily disposable lenseshave gained popularity for health and convenience benefits: they are cleaner and less receptive to bacteria and are ideal for people with allergies. The daily disposable lenses are worn during the day and removed and discarded at night. A fresh pair is applied to the eyes the next morning. The daily disposable lenses are thinner than daily conventional reusables, which are re-applied the following day after cleaning and disinfection.
