If you have astigmatism in addition to myopia or hyperopia, you will probably have had difficulty using contact lenses. Fortunately as technology has improved, there is now a decent selection of toric contact lenses for astigmatism available to you. They combine features of both cylindrical and spherical lenses to provide the best possible results for the most demanding needs.
Toric contact lenses are available in a variety of powers and curvatures as well as colours. Just as with regular contacts, they can be bought as extended wear, monthlies and even daily disposable contact lenses.
