I See Optometry offers complete contact lens examinations, fittings, and follow-up care. Exciting advances in contact lens research enable more patients to enjoy the benefits of contact lens wear.

We carry more than 10,000 trial lenses so we are able to accommodate you on the day of your visit.

In addition, we expertly fit rigid contact lenses for keratoconus and high myopia (-12 to-35).

If you have never worn contact lenses and are interested in having them fitted, our Ottawa optometrists and opticians will be pleased to discuss options best suited for you. If you wear contact lenses, we would ask you to wear them on the day of your examination in order for the doctor to verify the fit of the lenses.

Children’s eye exams

What to expect at your first appointment

An eye exam is about more than just a prescription for glasses. An optometrists is a front line primary health care provider. Our optometrists specialize in the examination, treatment, and prevention of common eye and vision problems, diseases and disorders. From eyestrain, infection, or minor injuries, to ocular manifestations of systemic conditions, maintaining the health of the eye, as well as excellent vision, is our top priority.

In order to better examine your eyes, we may need to dilate your pupils. In such a case, you may be sensitive to light following the exam. Reading and driving may be difficult, or in some cases, impossible, for a few hours.

Please note that the duration of an eye examination can vary between twenty minutes to two hours. However, we do understand that it is not always possible to complete the entire exam on the same day. We are happy to accommodate you and schedule necessary additional diagnostic tests another day.
