CONTACT LENS EXAMINATION
Clear, Comfortable Vision
At Front Street Optometry, our personalized Contact Lens Examination provides patients with the optimal lens choice for their lifestyle. We fit single vision, astigmatism (toric), and bifocal contacts in both soft and rigid lenses. You’ll leave our clinic well informed and confident that your eye health is in good hands. The Contact Lens Examination includes an initial Fitting Assessment and a Delivery Session, in which patients are taught to handle and care for their contact lenses. Follow-up care is very important within the first year of lens wear, and is always assessed at all future Comprehensive Exams. We also encourage patients to have complimentary progress checks at any time. Ask about contact lens possibilities at your next Comprehensive Eye Exam.

Due to a breakdown in negotiations with the Ministry of Health, Optometrists of Ontario, are not able to do Ohip-Insured Exams as of September 1, 2021.
This includes those 19 years of age and younger and ages 65 years old and older. Also those with Medical Issues like Diabetes and Glaucoma between the ages of 20 to 64 years of age.
However, we can put patients in these categories on a "Wait List" or book them farther ahead, in hope that resolution comes soon.
Also, if there is an Emergency, please inform us and we will ensure that you will get the care you need.
