Where To Buy Disposable Contact Lenses
EyeCare Plus is pleased to offer you disposable lenses of various durations. An appointment with one of our local optometrists can help you determine if disposable lenses are a good fit for your lifestyle and ocular health.
Daily disposable lenses are those that you can throw away at the end of each day. These lenses come in handy for people who are sensitive to allergens as well as cleaning fluid. They are also convenient since there is no need for a cleaning solution, making it a good option for people on the go.
Monthly disposable lenses, on the other hand, are reusable and last for thirty days. They ensure you have brighter eyes from improved oxygen transmission.
You can buy either type of disposable contact lens at our optical store in northwest Calgary at Crowfoot Crossing, and get a prescription for lenses right from our own local optometrists near you.
Maintenance of Contact Lenses
Contact lenses need proper maintenance. It is essential to wash and dry your hands before touching your contact lenses. You must clean the lenses at the end of each day with a cleaning solution recommended by us. In addition to this, use a fresh solution daily. Make sure that you also air-dry the lens case when the lenses are in use. Additionally, we advise that you put your lenses in before applying any makeup to avoid contamination.
Our Crowfoot optical store also offers a wide range of eyeglasses and sunglasses to protect your lenses from the sun.

Contact Lenses FAQ
How long will it take me to get used to wearing contact lenses?
This will depend on the type of lenses you chose and how sensitive your eyes are! If you choose hydrogel or silicone hydrogel, you may find that you will immediately find them comfortable! For this reason, many patients enjoy this style of contact lens. Rigid gas permeable lenses may have a more extended adjustment period - such as a few weeks. Some patients never adjust to wearing contact lenses, in which case, they opt for eyeglasses.
The method in which you use is largely personal! Speak with our optometrist to determine the best option for you.
Can my contact lens get lost in my eye?
We get asked this question more often than we would like to admit! Don’t worry - this will NOT happen. If you rub your eye vigorously, the lens may lodge under your upper eyelid. In most cases, you’ll be able to remove it yourself. If you’re having a difficult time, we can help! Contact lenses are actually quite easy to remove.
How old must my child be to use contact lenses?
If you are considering switching your child to contact lenses, speak with your doctor about it! We recommend that only responsible children use contact lenses -- after all, maintenance and care are crucial. However, there is no ‘right age’ for use. Let’s talk about it! Ultimately, however, the decision is between you and your child.
What kind of contact lenses are there?
There are different materials and replacement schedule lenses available. Depending on the condition of your eyes, your doctor may recommend a different replacement schedule lens. Such as:
- Reusable hydrogel lenses: can last up to one year
- Planned replacement soft lenses: can last several months
- Disposable soft lenses: daily wear to weekly wear
Daily wear contacts should be removed before sleep, whereas extended wear can be worn continuously.
Are contacts bad for your eyes?
Your contacts shouldn’t be bad for your eyes as long as you care for them as prescribed! Provide maintenance as necessary and only wear them as prescribed. If you overwear them or apply them with dirt or bacteria, you can run into complications.
As with anything, be safe and hygienic!

“My husband suffers from dementia and is difficult to handle. The person serving us at EyeCare Plus, Crowfoot, went above and beyond by patiently answering my husband’s repetitive questions over and over again. He also made sure that the glasses we ordered were ready as soon as possible. I highly recommend this store and shall be purchasing my eyeglasses there the next time my prescription requires new lenses.”
