Contact Lens Questions

You may have contact lens questions, whether you have been wearing contact lenses for years, or have never worn them before. It is common for people to go through a fitting and one of two things can happen:

  • there is so much information that you forget half of it
  • you were rushed through the process and didn't get the information to start with

We are here to provide answers to your contact lens questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

First, we will start with the most frequently asked questions. Many of these questions will be answered in more depth on our web pages, so in these cases we will provide a link to lead you there.

1. Lines on Toric Lenses

You have a brand new pair of contact lenses, and while looking to see if it's inside out, you notice a small line near the edge of the lens. Is that a defect? Or did you scratch the lens already?? Is that going to hurt your eye? If you have astigmatism, don't worry, that line is supposed to be there. Read about toric contact lenses for astigmatism and the little lines that are on them here.

2. How To Put Contact Lenses In

If you have never worn contact lenses, you are going to find this to be one of the biggest learning curves in wearing contact lenses. Everyone eventually develops their own way of inserting lenses, but we go over one way here.

3. How To Take Contact Lenses Out

If you can put your contact lenses in, but you can't take them out, it doesn't take long before panic can set in. How do you get these things out of your eye? And, no, you can't just touch the lens and it will magically stick to your finger. You do have to actually squeeze the contact lens off of your eye. Our Removing Contact Lenses page has more detail on how to do this.

4. Why Don't We Sell Online Contact Lenses?

Here at OnlineContactLensAdvice, we have debated whether or not to sell contact lenses online. At this time, it is not feasible for us to do so. Because we are in Canada, and the majority of people who visit our site are in the United States or Great Britain or other countries, the legalities of exporting prescription contact lenses to other countries is too complicated for a small company like us. It is a possibility for us to sell contact lenses within Canada, and if you are in Canada and would like to see this available, please send us a message using our Contact Us form.
