Clear Vision Fit for Your Lifestyle

Contact lenses are more than an alternative to glasses. Contact lenses offer a more natural view of the world. Various styles, shapes, and sizes are available to accommodate nearly every prescription and lifestyle. 

Dr. Butts’ experience as a research assistant for Bausch & Lomb allows our practice to be one of the first in Canada to offer many progressive lens designs. Contact lens exams and fittings help us personalize your prescription to meet your individual needs, so we can prioritize your comfort, health, and vision.

Fit Is Crucial for Comfort & Performance

A contact lens fit is customized for your prescription and eye shape. Imagine wearing a shoe that’s too big or riding a bike that’s too small. Fit affects comfort and performance. A poor fit can irritate your eye, slip out of place, or have limited vision correction. We want to help enhance the quality of your visual experience, so you can enjoy healthy, clear vision all your life.

What Is a Contact Lens Exam?

A comprehensive or regular eye exam evaluates your vision and eye health but doesn’t provide a contact lens prescription. Unlike an eyeglasses prescription, a contact lens must be fitted to your eye’s curvature and designed to compensate for any irregularities affecting your vision.

Contact lens exams include multiple assessments to help us measure your eye and determine what contact lens type may benefit you. We evaluate if your eye health can tolerate standard contact lenses, or if you require a specialized contact lens to protect your eye health and provide accurate vision correction.

Dry Eye & Contact Lens Wear

Healthy eyes need a constant layer of moisture (tear film). When tears are lacking, or lenses are fitted poorly, the contact lens can irritate the eye’s surface, causing contact lens-induced dry eye. You can experience increased sensitivity, irritation, or blurred vision even with an accurate prescription. We’re committed to helping you find vision correction options appropriate for your eyes. You may benefit from dry eye treatment or changing your contact lens type. Scleral lenses are an alternative option for those with dry eyes, as the customized design creates a moisture reservoir.

Tailored to Your Vision & Comfort

At Calgary Trail Vision Centre, we strive to provide quality care tailored to your vision and lifestyle. We’re committed to helping you achieve a comfortable and accurate fit by pursuing the latest technology and techniques.
