Contacts in every season. Some comments by Dr. Radhika Chawla, Optometrist

less than 1 minute

You love the freedom of contact lenses, but allergy season can make your eyes uncomfortable.

Airborne allergens can land on your lenses and cause discomfort.

Eye drops will relieve your symptoms and keep your contact lenses clean. Warning: Certain drops can discolour or damage your lenses, so ask us first.

During the peak of allergy season, consider daily disposable contact lenses. Because you replace them so frequently, these lenses are unlikely to cause or heighten any allergy-related irritation. 

Questions? Dr. Radhika Chawla of the Richmond Hill Optometric Clinic can let you know the best contact lens options and lubricating drops, to keep you – and your eyes – smiling year round!
