Why not try contact lenses!

With the winter season in full swing, having to wear glasses may get in the way of some of your favourite winter sports. If your glasses fog up while skiing or make your hockey game more difficult, contact lenses could be the solution.

Diabetes occurs when the body does not produce enough of the hormone insulin, leading to excess sugar (glucose) in the bloodstream. Diabetes can affect many parts of the body, including the eyes. The high levels of glucose in the blood can cause the tiny blood vessels in the retina to weaken and leak, leading to a condition known as diabetic retinopathy.

Our doctors keep up with all of the current medical and therapeutic options for chronic dry eyes

People with Dry Eye Syndrome will notice their eyes feeling sandy, scratchy and irritated. They may also experience blurred vision, a burning sensation and/or excessive tearing. There are several different causes of dry eye.

Paying the Price: What Vision Loss Costs Canadians and What We Should Do About It

How to insert your lenses

You want comfort, safety, and performance from your eye wear. Whether you are into social, recreation, or extreme competition, the right glasses and lenses can make your favourite activity even more enjoyable

Welcome to Myvisioncalgary and our Sporting EyeCare Team. Our Doctors are avid sports enthusiasts.We are excited to share our insights in the sports we are involved in, and the products we use and endorse for your best vision performance.

Skiing and Snowboarding

All of our doctors enjoy one of these winter pass-times and agree that a good pair of goggles can greatly aid in performance and eye protection. Whether you’re racing down the slopes, or skiing through the trees, goggles provide protection from UV, wind and flying snow. A lens colour like amber enhances ground contours on cloudy days. Some goggles are designed to wear your glasses underneath, such as our Antifog SALICE models. Another option is contact lenses, which can even work for people with complex prescriptions. Anti-fog SALICE also offers the option of inserting prescription lenses behind the sport goggles.

As baby boomers reach middle age, the question looms large: How to avoid either of two telltale signs of aging -- bifocals or reading glasses?

Boomers have three contact lens options for correcting the close-up blurred vision that typically begins in middle age; a condition referred to as presbyopia. (One of the three options still calls for reading glasses, but they can be used discreetly.)

The three options are:

  • Bifocal contact lenses
  • Monovision
  • Contact lenses for distance vision with supplementary reading glasses slipped over the contacts for close work

Below is a brief comparison of Soft and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses. A thorough eye examination and a better understanding of your specific vision requirements will help determine the best options for you.

By Type of Vision Correction Required
Contact lenses may be identified by the type of refractive error they are designed to correct.

By Wearing Period
Daily Wear: Lenses prescribed for daily wear are to be worn only during waking hours, usually up to a maximum of 18 hours. Daily wear lenses are removed at night and cleaned and disinfected after each removal.
