What are Toric Lenses?
Toric contact lenses are intended for the
correction of astigmatism. Astigmatism is usually caused by an irregular
curvature of the cornea that needs correction to enable perfect vision. That can
be achieved with the help of aspheric contact lenses. Besides power, base curve
and diameter, astigmatism contact lenses also have an axis and cylindrical power
as special parameters necessary to correct astigmatism. This means that you will
have to carefully fill out two additional values. Having trouble finding your
exact values? Consult with your optician or ophthalmologist before buying any
values or parameters that deviate from your prescription.
Types of Contact Lenses for Astigmatism
We offer daily, bi-weekly and monthly toric
contacts. The advantage of monthly toric lenses is their low price. Bi-weekly
toric lenses are replaced more frequently than monthlies, and can be more
affordable than daily lenses, making them a nice balance between monthly and
daily lenses. Daily toric lenses are less of a burden for sensitive eyes and are
the most hygienic option. If you suffer from dry eyes while wearing contact
lenses, we recommend using eye drops and eye
sprays for immediate relief.
