Toric Contact Lenses for Astigmatism Correction

Toric contact lenses are considered specialty contact lenses because they have a special function. These lenses are designed primarily to correct the effects of astigmatism. Toric contact lenses are prescribed for patients who suffer from astigmatism. Some people who are nearsighted or farsighted are also sometimes prescribed with toric lenses for enhanced visual acuity and better correction of vision problems.

Toric contact lenses are similar to regular lenses in many ways, including the same material used in production of the lenses. But these lenses are special because of various reasons. First, the lenses are designed to correct both cylindrical and spherical aberrations in the vision of the wearer. Toric lenses also usually have specific top sides and bottom sides, which do not apply to regular lenses. This is because toric lenses have a certain orientation to allow them to provide the sharpest and the clearest vision to the wearer, but for best results, this orientation should be maintained at all times. Some toric lenses also differ because the bottom part is thicker. This thicker portion is usually pushed by the eyelid every time the user blinks. This special mechanism allows the lens to fall back to its correct position with every blink. To assist in the application of toric lenses, the lenses often have miniscule markings on them.

Toric lenses are expectedly more expensive than regular lenses but they are often a must for those who really need astigmatism correction. Also, toric lenses need to be fitted, so you would need to include the practitioner’s fee in your costing for your contact lens. But since they are often expensive, the lenses are usually made for extended wear. There are, however, some brands that also provide toric lenses made for short term use. In 2000, the first toric lenses that were also disposable were released by Vistakon.

If you are suffering from astigmatism, this is the most recommended vision correction tool you can use. With toric lenses, you don’t have to be forced into using eyeglasses and can enjoy the freedom of wearing lenses. You can also enjoy the convenience of disposable contact lenses.
