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.
Contact Lenses for Astigmatism
We offer daily, biweekly, and monthly toric
contacts. The advantage of monthly toric lenses is their low price. Biweekly
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.
