What are Toric Contact Lenses?

Toric lenses are shaped differently from other lenses. While the standard type has a spherical surface, toric lenses look a bit more like a doughnut. They create different focusing powers for those who have eyes that require something a bit different. Toric contact lenses were designed for those who have astigmatism issues. In most cases, that means the cornea or lens itself is curved, so the refraction of the eye is very different. That can mean some trouble with the details in the world around you, but toric contact lenses addresses that problem with ease.

Unlike other contact lenses, though, there are a few things to keep in mind with this type. First, remember that professional fitting is a must for this type of lens, as they need to stay on your eye in a particular way. If your lenses slip when you have them on, you’re less likely to be able to see well. Second, it’s important to understand that toric contact lenses come in different types, so you’ll need to know which ones work best for you. They come as disposables, dailies, and even coloured lenses, so choosing the right ones to meet your needs is a must.
