What is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is a visual disorder that can accompany nearsightedness and farsightedness. It is an irregular shaped cornea, similar to that of a football, that is either inherited or caused by an eye injury or surgery. This common condition can be easily corrected with eye glasses or contact lenses for astigmatism.

Toric Contact Lenses can Correct Astigmatism

Contact lenses for astigmatism, also called toric contact lenses, allow individuals with astigmatism to enjoy freedom from glasses and the convenience of contacts. Toric contact lenses usually have two powers created with curvatures at different angles. Unlike regular contact lenses, contact lenses for astigmatism are specially designed to remain in a certain position on the eye. They do not rotate on the eye, thus providing needed stability for clearer vision.

Toric Contact Lenses for Every Need

With toric contact lenses, there are no limitations. Eye Care Group in Edmonton and St. Albert offers:

  • colored toric contact lenses
  • toric soft contact lenses
  • RGP toric lenses (rigid gas permeable)
