We are excited to announce that we are one of the first clinics in Calgary to prescribe contact lenses that can help those suffering from eye allergies! Approximately one out of three contact lens wearers experience itchy eyes and 80% find that this affects their quality of comfort with contact lenses. Our optometrists find that patients suffering from eye allergies often need to rely on the use of allergy drops, artificial tears, and cold compresses in order to wear their contact lenses comfortably. However, this is no longer the case as we now have ACUVUE® Theravision® with Ketotifen, the first and only medication-releasing contact lens for patients that want to wear contact lenses but suffer from itchy, irritated eyes. These are not available online and can only be fit by an optometrist.
The ACUVUE® Theravision® contact lens works in a number of unique ways:
- The contact lens has built-in allergy medication (Ketotifen) that can provide itchy eye relief in a matter of minutes
- It provides fast-acting and long-lasting allergy relief, for up to 12 hours
- The medication is released in a consistent manner over time (up to 5 hours) which eliminates the need to worry about a dosing schedule with allergy eye drops
- It is a daily disposable contact lens that can be recycled after one use making it convenient and hygienic
For clear, comfortable vision and relief from eye allergies, try the ACUVUE® Theravision® contact lens and see the difference for yourself!
