Toric contact lenses are the perfect solution for astigmatism. The advantage of toric lenses over cylindrical lenses is that they offer a much larger field of vision. These lenses require a prescription that provides both the dioptric value for distance vision and the exact angle and correction (axis and cylinder) needed to address the astigmatism. Toric lenses are worn in a fixed position so that the correction can align with the irregularities of the cornea. This is achieved by different methods, and your optician can advise on the most suitable type and material of contact lenses for your eyes. Toric lenses are designed for maximum comfort – try them for yourself!
