Lenses for Astigmatism

Give up your glasses without sacrificing sharp, clear vision. Think you can't wear soft contact lenses because you have astigmatism? That's the way it used to be, but not any more. Designed especially for correcting astigmatism, toric soft contact lenses can give you the same vision clarity you enjoyed while wearing glasses. Topics include:

How Astigmatism Affects Your Vision

Astigmatism is a common vision problem. The good news is that it can be corrected with toric soft contacts instead of glasses.

Cross Section of Normal Eye

In the normal eye, the cornea (the clear lens in the front of the eye) is round, like a soccer ball, allowing light rays to focus evenly on the retina at the back of the eye.

In the astigmatic eye, the cornea is oval, like an egg, preventing light from correctly focusing on the retina.
