Toric Contacts

Toric contact lenses were developed for those of you that have astigmatism.

Toric contacts come in both soft and rigid lenses.
Toric lenses have two powers in them that are created with curvatures at different angles to correct for astigmatism and myopia or hyperopia. There is also a device in them that keep the contact lens stable on your eye that keeps it from moving or rotating.

Today you are also able to get toric lenses that change the color of your eye and in disposable format.

If you have astigmatism and would like to wear contacts, please make an appointment with our doctors and they will be very glad to go over your options and see if they would be proper for you.
