Toric lenses are contact lenses with a certain shape. If you have astigmatism, the shape of your eye is oval and not round. Toric contact lenses correct astigmatism (cylindrical aberration) with a different curvature of the cornea or lens in your eye.
About toric lenses
Regular spherical contact lenses will not sit comfortably because they move over the eye and cause blurred vision. Toric contact lenses have been specially developed for eyes with a cylinder deviation. They are designed to fit well on the eye, feel comfortable and offer a perfect vision. A toric lens has different planes and gravities. Lenses with a cylinder can be accompanied by myopia or hyperopia.
Toric lenses have two different focal points in the lens horizontally and vertically. This makes it important that the lens is properly positioned. Most astigmatism lenses are therefore neglected at the bottom, why the lens stays on the eye. This way you have an optimal and clear vision.
Benefits of toric lenses
- A toric contact lens fits on your eye, giving you stable and sharp vision all day long.
- Because some toric lenses are weighted at the bottom, the lenses will not shift and stay in the correct position. With a good toric lens you achieve optimum visibility.
- Lenses with a cylinder can easily be alternated with glasses. In addition, many variations and correction options are possible.
Types of toric lenses
Toric lenses are available in various strengths, shapes, and sizes. Just like most lenses, you can choose daily, weekly or monthly lenses. There are even toric color lenses and multifocal toric lenses. Most toric lenses are soft lenses. Soft lenses allow more oxygen through than hard lenses, which means that you are less likely to suffer from dry eyes. You can also order lenses with a UV-filter for extra protection.
