At Kendall Wilson Optometry, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists in Saskatoon. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Kendall & Dr. Wilson will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Kendall & Dr. Wilson determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a contact lens evaluation call 306-244-7464.
After determining the level of refractive error, we work with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as multifocal or progressive contact lenses, are also available. Call us at 306-244-7464 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Disposable cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye colour! Call us at 306-244-7464 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
Contact lens instruction
When you decide to proceed with contact lenses the Optometrist will order in a pair of contact lens trials. The Optometrist will check the fit of the contact lenses on your eyes. He will also check your vision while wearing the contact lenses. We will then show you how to insert and remove your contact lenses. It takes a little practice. We will teach you how to clean and care for your lenses. You can then take the lenses home to practice. In two weeks you return to the clinic to see your Optometrist to check your eyes. If no changes need to be made to your contact lenses we can proceed to order you more lenses.
