Toric for Astigmatism Contact Lenses

Toric contact lenses are specifically designed to correct astigmatism. This type of contact lens addresses the slight difference in shape of your eye that can cause fuzzy, blurred vision. A toric contact lens has two prescriptions—one to correct astigmatism, and the other to correct near- or farsightedness. Toric contact lenses have a special shape that creates different refractive, or focusing, powers on the vertical and horizontal orientations. The refractive strength increases or decreases gradually as you move around the lens. Toric contact lenses correct astigmatism issues that arise from a different curvature of the cornea or lens in your eye. In these cases, the cornea or lens is curved so that the refraction of your eye differs between the vertical and horizontal planes. This causes blurry vision and trouble seeing fine details. Sometimes, vertical lines will appear to tilt.
