Ready to wear contacts? Please watch our instructional video with Dr Holtom
Our goal is to fit you with contact lenses that give clear and comfortable vision. Getting started with contact lenses though takes practice! Dr. Jason Holtom has provided an instructional video for new contact lens wearers so that they can get through their contact lens fitting at the office quick and easy!
Establishing a Good Contact Lens Fit
It starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.
Fitting lenses to your lifestyle
We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eyes. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You may even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
Follow up fittings
Our Red Deer team will follow up after the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible result. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
