Help me: where to buy medical compression stockings?

HI, My father, who lived outside of Canada, has suffered varicose vein problem. He needs thigh high medical compression stockings with at least 20-30mmHg. The country he lived has this kind of stockings, however, they are very thick. With summer comes, he can't stand them. Also the quality are very poor. I would like to get pairs for him from Canada since I think the quality here will be much better.

I went to Shoppers Drug mart and only found knee high stocking for men. Also I find one website selling them. However, I really would like to feel the thickness before I buy. So Could anyone tell me which store I should look into?

Thank you.

Jessica

Sigvaris is a good brand; I know because I have to wear one on my right leg due to an old injury (30-40mmHg).

I bought locally from a medical supply store and it was $100+tax for one pair; I got 2 pair from Ames Walker for US$80 shipped to my door (no duty or taxes, just in my mailbox).

Good luck with your search. :)

Ames Walker (online) -- bought 2 pairs for my aunt. Also try Medical Mart on Eglinton and Dixie (Mississauga) or Bristol and Matheson (Mississauga).
