Toric contact lenses
Toric contact lenses are specially shaped lenses for people with astigmatism. This is why they often have the suffix “for astigmatism”. Astigmatism is a condition of the eye which describes a warping of the cornea. This irregular curvature is the reason why people with astigmatism have a distorted view. Toric contact lenses are suited for astigmatic eyes and correct short- or far-sightedness.
To correct the astigmatism, toric lenses need to stabilize in a specific axis. This can be reached by a prism in the lower area of the contact lens. Another option is a blink-induced adjustment. The choice of the method depends on the manufaturer. Toric lenses have extra measures. These are different than the ones for spherical or multifocal contact lenses. The measures are called “cylinder” and “axis”. They have to be prescribed by your professional optician. If you know your prescription, you can easily fill them in our form. Lensplaza offers further information on toric contact lenses and handling advice.
