Contact Lenses – Soft and Specialty Lenses

Contact Lens

AEDI has a state-of-the art contact lens clinic which can cater to all contact lens needs of the patients. We have the services of trained senior optometrists who specialize in contact lens fitting.

We offer a wide range of contact lens options:

  • Soft (silicone) hydrogel lenses – spherical, toric and multifocal
  • Hard rigid gas permeable lenses
  • Mini/semi-scleral lenses

Specialty contact lenses have been great options for dry eye disease, keratoconus, post-keratoplasty (corneal transplantation), pellucid marginal degeneration, post traumatic surfaces (scarred corneas), irregular irides, high prescriptions, and light sensitive eyes.

NOTE: Contact lenses are made to correct a wide range of prescriptions that include nearsighted / farsighted eyes, astigmatic eyes, presbyopic eyes and irregular shaped (keratoconic or post-surgical) eyes.

Our Approach:

Our philosophy is to attempt to fit your eye with the least complex, and most readily available contact lens. A strategy that is created from the outset will help guide us through the fitting process and will lead you to a product that provides you with the best possible vision.

  • We develop our strategy from an in-office assessment, measurements, and reviewing what challenges you have from day-to-day.
  • Before we start the fitting process, we review which contact lens options might work and, whenever possible, try to demonstrate the final product.
  • After reviewing your ocular surface and vision needs, we set up a strategy to address your concerns and determine which contact lens options would suit you best.
  • Experience and knowledge of our products allows us to focus on which products would provide you with the best outcomes.
  • Communicating our strategy, demonstrating the product and reviewing the financial and time commitments go a long way to minimizing any unwanted surprises.

Contact Lens Fittings

We offer fittings for beginners and refresher appointments for those who have worn contact lenses in the past. Our aim is to provide you with the knowledge and skills to safely handle and take care of your contact lenses and your eyes. This will reduce your risk of ocular surface complications while maintaining the integrity of your contacts and your overall experience.


Specialty Contact Lens Fittings

Specialty contact lenses are designed to fit a wider range of eyes; however, we leave that option open to anyone that is interested in trying something new. We assume all patients are beginners and offer full training in insertion and removal techniques, to ensure a successful outcome.


These specialty contact lenses provide a great option for:

  • Dry eye disease
  • Keratoconus
  • Post-keratoplasty (corneal transplantation)
  • Pellucid marginal degeneration
  • Post-traumatic surfaces (scarred corneas)
  • Irregular irides
  • High prescriptions
  • Light-sensitive eyes

Prosthetic Contact Lens Fittings

Prosthetic contact lenses are prescribed to mask flaws and improve the appearance of an eye disfigured from a birth defect, trauma, or eye disease.


If certain structures of the injured or disfigured eye also fail to function properly, special prosthetic lenses can be designed to block excess light from reaching the back of the eye to reduce glare and increase comfort.

Many injuries, conditions and infections can lead to disfigurement of an eye and make an individual feel self-conscious about his or her appearance. Prosthetic lenses can be specially designed to match the appearance of the unaffected eye as closely as possible and make the disfigured eye less conspicuous.


** Prosthetic lenses can be tinted to varying ranges and even reconstruct the iris and pupil to help manage crippling glare and associated visual strain. Similarly, if patient requires any refractive correction then power can be incorporate at centre of the lens.

We offer low vision devices to help provide better vision and quality of life in patients with low vision in whom no other treatment is possible (eg., diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration, retinal dystrophies, amblyopia, etc). The various categories of low vision devices available with us are –

  • Hand held telescope
  • Spectacle mounted telescope
  • Magnifiers
  • Hand held illuminated magnifier
  • Dome bar magnifier
  • Bioptic telescope
  • Low vision kit
  • Pocket folding magnifier
  • Non optical devices
  • Spectacle magnifier
  • Stand magnifier
  • CCTV
