Contact Lenses at Invision Optical

The Proper Fit
The human eye is approximately 24 millimetres across. The Colossal Squid has an eye measurement of 27 centimetres across. That’s over 11 times bigger than our eyes! Just think how large a squid’s contact lens would be!

Luckily for them, colossal squids don’t have to worry about that, but we do. To receive the proper fit of contact lenses, optometrists need to match the lens size to the curvature of your cornea. Therefore you need a prescription to buy the right fit of contacts for your eyes.

When you visit us at Invision Optical, our optometrists will help you to find the right fit of contact lens for your lifestyle and your eyes, and walk you through the process of cleaning and caring for your new prescription contact lenses.

Most contact lenses are either for daily wear, or extended wear, as you can obtain daily disposable lenses or bi-weekly and monthly disposable lenses. Contact lenses can also be hard, soft, or anywhere in between. There are also different shaped lenses available in order to treat various eye and vision problems. As contacts sit directly on the eye, it is essential to make sure they are clean and comfortable for your use.

Cleaning and Care
The first step in using contacts is to always wash your hands with soap and water before touching the lenses, or your eyes. This is to make sure that no dirt, dust, or other debris gets into either. Hypoallergenic soap that contains no perfumes, lotions, or other cosmetics, would be the optimum choice, as not to transfer any oils or residue from your fingers to your contacts. Pat your hands dry on a clean, lint-free towel.

It is important to always inspect the lenses before inserting them into your eye. If you notice anything on your contacts, you should use your saline or solution to clean them. If the lens is at all damaged, throw it out and replace it with a new one. After putting your contacts in, make sure to clean and rinse out your contact lens case with fresh cleaning solution.

If you are out of cleaning solution, do not use water as a substitute, as you risk damaging or drying out the lenses. Always remember to remove contacts before showering, swimming, or sleeping.

When removing the contacts from your eyes, clean and dry your hands like before. Take out your first lens, placing it in the palm of your hand, and apply a small amount of cleaning solution directly onto the lens. Use your finger to gently rub the solution into the contact, as to loosen and dissolve buildup that can collect on the lens. Place in your case, and repeat for the second contact. Never mix the previous day’s solution with the new, as this could negate the cleaning solution effect. Store your container in an upright position as not to dry out one contact from the other.

If you feel like contact lenses would be an excellent fit for you, schedule an appointment with our optometrists at Invision Optical today!

Our Services

Adult Eye Exam

At Invision Eye Clinic we recommend that every adult from the age of 19 to 65 have a comprehensive eye exam every year. As we get older, there is a higher chance to develop ocular conditions such as cataracts,  glaucoma, and macular degeneration. For this reason, an annual eye exam is all the more important for adults over the age of 65. An annual eye exam is also recommended for anyone with a systemic condition like diabetes or multiple sclerosis where there can be a significant impact on vision and ocular health.

Our doctors strive to provide outstanding eye care with visual solutions that are custom designed to meet each patients’ individual needs. Our experienced staff will then work one on one with each patient to find the glasses and lens options that best suits their respective lifestyle.

Child Eye Exam

At Invision Eye Clinic we recommend children have their first eye exam by the age of 3, and then yearly thereafter. With every child, we strive to support them with their visual development and help them meet the visual demands of the world around them.

During your child’s eye exam, our doctors will assess them for near-sightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia), an eye turn (strabismus), lazy eye (amblyopia) and other ocular pathologies. We will also assess your child’s eye movement (tracking) skills, and the coordination of their eyes while they are performing visual tasks.

It is important to remember that your child does not need to be able to read or to identify letters to have an eye examination. Our tests are designed for all ages and provide vital information about your child’s eye health.

Dry Eye

Dry eyes can show up in various different forms; red eyes, watery eyes, itchy eyes, tired or uncomfortable vision. When the delicate balance of tears on the eye is unbalanced, a cascade of these symptoms can present. Crustiness around the eyes in the morning and chronic styes can also be traced back to a dry eye problem. The impact of our habits and environment cannot be overlooked. Our habits, environment and changes in season can all play a role in severity of our symptoms.

At Invision Eye Clinic, each exam includes an evaluation to not only identify potential dry eye, but to also investigate the possible causes and factors that have contributed to it.

For patients who are suffering from more advanced cases of dry eye, we offer in depth dry eye testing that investigates the root causes of the disease. We can develop a treatment plan that will involve both the management of symptoms and a preventative maintenance protocol.


Diabetes is a disease affecting how the body uses or produces insulin, a hormone that controls blood glucose (sugar) levels. Those suffering from diabetes are at risk of developing various other health issues, including impacts to their vision and eye health.

At our clinic, we implement the latest OCT technology to monitor and assess the impact of diabetes in the eye so that vision can be kept at optimal levels. Our diabetic eye exams not only include digital retinal imaging to look for diabetic changes, but also an internal sub-surface scan to create a detailed map of the eye. When required, our doctors can also use OCT angiography to map out individual blood vessels in the eye to look for even the earliest signs of damage from diabetes.


Glaucoma is a slow progressing disease and can often go unnoticed without regular testing. It involves an increase in eye pressure that can slowly damage the optic nerve inside the eye, causing vision loss. If left undiagnosed and untreated, it can easily lead to blindness.

At our clinic, we screen each and every patient with an OCT scan of their optic nerve to assess the risks of glaucoma. For patients who are at risk or who are diagnosed with glaucoma, comprehensive eye exams and visual field tests are crucial alongside more detailed OCT scans.

Glaucoma can be a confusing and stressful disease for patients. At our clinic, our doctors take the time to perform the necessary tests and discuss all the treatment options with our patients.

Our OCT retinal imaging camera takes a detailed scan of your retina allowing for early detection of many retinal diseases. Retinal imaging also allows for making close comparisons and watching for trend patterns between scans so that changes in the eyes can be monitored over time. The OCT has enabled eye care professionals to detect and monitor the subtle changes that can occur in diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal toxicity, and multiple sclerosis.

Visual field testing is done at our clinic through the world of virtual reality. With our portable VR headset, we are able to accurately and quickly perform all types of visual field tests. Alongside this, the wearable technology also allows us to perform screenings, colour vision, and pupillometry measurements right in the headset.
