Contact lenses can be a great alternative to glasses for those looking for flexibility. Although contacts don’t necessarily mean you’ll be entirely free from eyeglasses, there are many different types and brands to suit different eyes, needs, and lifestyles. Do you have astigmatism or need bifocals? We have a contact lens for that!
Because contacts sit directly on the eye, a contact lens exam and fitting is essential before jumping onto the contact lens train. Some risks and conditions make contact lenses unsuitable for some eyes, so we offer comprehensive exams and fittings to find and fit the right lenses for your eye health and lifestyle.
If we determine that you aren’t a good candidate for contacts, for whatever reason, we will find the right corrective solution for you.
The Contact Lens Exam
Our contact lens exams follow the same process as our regular, comprehensive exams, but focus on your cornea and other aspects specific to contact lens use. Because contacts fit differently than glasses, your contact lens prescription differs from your eyeglass prescription.
During this exam, we’ll determine if your eyes are healthy enough to support the frequent use of contact lenses. For example, those with chronic eye infections, allergies, or work in dirty and dusty environments, may not benefit from wearing contacts. We will be able to discuss your unique situation and provide recommendations during the exam.
If you already wear contacts, we’ll use this time to assess the fit of your current contacts and discuss how they’re working for you. If indicated, we may recommend a different type of lens or adjust your prescription.
The Contact Lens Fitting
For all new contact lens wearers, a fitting is included in your contact lens exam. During this time, we will measure your cornea and find the proper contact lens fit for your eyes. We will also show you how to insert and remove your lenses, care for them properly, and send you home with a trial pair.
This process takes about an hour, but you will receive all the information you need to be a happy and healthy contact lens wearer.

Where to Find Us
Our clinic is located in Clover Square Village, close to No Frills and Pizza Hut, right in the heart of Cloverdale, Surrey, BC. Our family has been serving the Greater Vancouver Area for over 20 years, and we would love to see you soon.
I can’t say enough good things about this place. Unique and wide selection of frames, lots of options for smaller budgets, the staff are so charming and delightful, great hours and location. I would highly recommend Annik to everyone. I am a customer for life.
What can I say. This place is the best. Amazing friendly owners who actually care about the customer and the exceptional service they offer. Great family and very helpful when picking out the right product. I wish I could give this place 10 stars. Highly recommended.
They are the best! They treat you like family and really take the time to find the best pair of glasses for you. I walked in looking for a pair of sunglasses and found a pair that I’d never expect to look good on me!
Again, they really took the time to get to know my situation and provided a comfortable experience, even fitting the glasses to my face, for that perfect fit. Thank you Annik Optical!
