PERFECT YOUR VISION
With the right prescription in place, your next big decision is whether you wish to go with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or both. Your occupation and lifestyle will help determine the best option for you. The Eye Centre offers a full range of popular contact lens brands, designer frames and high-quality sunglasses in Fort McMurray, Drayton Valley and Leduc. You’re invited to come in for a professional fitting. Whether you’re concerned with maintaining an eye-glass-free appearance, or you prefer the convenience of an easily removable pair of frames, the decision is up to you.
Contact lenses (soft contact lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, continuous wear contact lenses, disposable contact lenses)
If you opt for a new pair of eyeglasses, our staff can help you throughout the selection process. The style of frames you choose speaks volumes about your personality. We’ll ensure you get the right prescription as well as the most suitable frame style. Our staff always ensures that your ophthalmic needs and budgetary considerations are taken into consideration. If you wear eyeglasses, you want to find a pair that suits your personality, face shape, hair colour and lifestyle perfectly.
At Alberta’s Eye Centre, your comfort, vision, and health remain our top priorities. As such, we provide a wide assortment of content lenses to accommodate your ophthalmic needs and lifestyle. We can target specific issues you may be having such as dry eyes, astigmatism or difficulty reading.
