More and more people lead increasingly active lifestyles, ensuring that more and more people are choosing to wear contact lenses. At Lumina Eye Care, we understand the importance of finding the perfect contact lenses for your eyes. Our experienced eye doctors/optometrists in Thornhill, Ontario, are committed to providing a patient-centered experience and comprehensive eye care tailored to your unique eyes. Here are the important factors to consider when choosing contact lenses.


1. Eye condition and prescription
Contact lenses come in various types, and it is essential to get the right type based on your eye condition and prescription. At Lumina Eye Care, our eye doctors will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes to determine the type of contact lenses that are best suited for your eyes.

2. Comfort
Wearing contact lenses can be uncomfortable if the lenses do not fit well or if the material is not suitable for your eyes. Our eye doctors will work with you to determine the right fit and material for your contact lenses, ensuring maximum comfort.

3. Lifestyle
It is essential to consider your lifestyle when choosing contact lenses. For example, if you are involved in sports or other physical activities, you may need contact lenses that are more durable and can withstand the rigors of your activities. Similarly, if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen, you may need contact lenses that are suitable for extended wear.

4. Maintenance
Different types of contact lenses require different levels of maintenance. Our eye doctors will educate you on the best practices for maintaining your contact lenses, ensuring that your lenses remain clean and safe for your eyes.

5. Budget
Cost is an important factor to consider when choosing contact lenses. At Lumina Eye Care, we offer a range of contact lenses that cater to different budgets, ensuring that you can find the right lenses that meet your visual health needs.
