Astigmatism can be a condition that affects nearly as many eyes as nearsightedness. It can lead to blurriness, a halo effect, and can be more prominent at night or in the evening when the person is staring at bright lights. The use of contact lenses isn't an easy way to solve this problem. The problem was in stabilising the lens to the eye, in order for vision correction in specific spots on the cornea. Contact lens technology has come a long way over the years. Astigmatic patients have an abundance of toric options.
Toric contact lenses use sophisticated combinations between cylindrical and spherical design to correct conditions that were once considered untreatable. Each manufacturer has its own unique stabilizing technology which is usually patentable and specific to its brand. This helps to hold the lenses in place. Astigmatism is a condition that affects the corneas of people with irregular corneas. This makes it crucial to correct it.
Toric lenses provide the same amazing comfort and safety due to their use of the same materials that regular contacts. You can get them in multiple powers and curvatures. Furthermore, they come in a wide selection of colours. Astigmatic patients can also enjoy the benefits of tinted contacts.The Colored Contact Lenses for Astigmatism are available in our Shop in 16 beautiful colours and come in an impressive variety of powers.
Toric lenses can also be made in all modalities. Patients with astigmatism will have the ability to choose whether they want to replace their contacts monthly or two weeks apart.

You should always be sure to get a professional lens fit before purchasing contact lenses for the first time. Only by consulting a specialist can you make the best decision about the right contact lenses that are perfect for you. This is especially important when buying toric lenses to correct astigmatism. Such contacts require a high level of expertise and precision. Before the user can decide if they are right for him/her, they must be properly fitted and tested. It is virtually impossible to order such products if you don't have a valid prescription. Before you buy a new brand, be sure to test at your favourite optician. If that is not an option then visit an optometrist with your new contacts to make sure they are correctly fitted and won't cause irritation.
Toric lenses come with some parameters that can be confusing for novice users. If you are unsure what they mean, take a look at our FAQ about understanding contact lenses prescription. Apart from the spherical power of the lens (SPH), your contacts will also include parameters such as cylinder and axis. These two numbers are used to determine the level of correction required for you and its location on the lens. You must follow your prescription for correcting astigmatism carefully. A slight deviation from these values if not specified by your optician can cause blurry vision. Fortunately there are so many products today that it is simple to find exactly the product you require without compromising your visual acuity.
CooperVision's BiofinityXRToric contacts offer comfort and a wider range of cylinder power. Additionally, if your vision has become blurred due to astigmatism and you experience presbyopia (you cannot see well up close), and of course you need to treat both, you might consider Proclear MultifocalToric contacts.
