Book Your Appointment

If you’re in need of new contact lenses and live in Canada, you may be wondering if you can purchase them over the counter. If you have a valid prescription, then yes. If you in Canada, you cannot buy contact lenses without a prescription from an optometrist or optical boutique. This is because contact lenses are considered medical devices and require a proper fitting and evaluation by a licensed eye care professional.

However, if you already have a valid prescription, you can easily buy your contact lenses from a reputable supplier. At Eye Care Group in Edmonton, we have a wide range of contact lenses available for purchase, including the popular Alcon Dailies, a one day disposal contact lens. These contact lenses are known for their comfort and are a popular choice among our customers.

It’s Important to remember that an annual eye exam is crucial when using contact lenses. Our licensed eye care professionals will ensure that your eyes are healthy and that the contact lenses you purchase are the correct prescription and fit properly.

In conclusion, while you cannot buy contact lenses over the counter in Canada, you can easily purchase them with a valid prescription from a reputable supplier such as Eye Care Group.
