Biomedics Toric contain 55% water and are designed for exceptional comfort and clear crisp vision keeping your eyes moist and hydrated throughout the day, add to that CooperVisions Aberration Neutralizing System™ and chiselled edge for extremely stable vision when blinking you can see why these lenses remain popular for people who have astigmatism and are looking to wear contact lenses.
With their advanced Toric design features, including the widest prism ballast, uniform horizontal ballast thickness for stability, and a smooth, consistent surface to reduce friction, that work together to create a high level of comfort and stability you can see why they are popular with Optometrist and astigmatic contact lens wearers.
Yes. If you have astigmatism your corneas will be shaped unevenly and this causes the light entering your eye to warp, your Optometrist will prescribe Toric lenses, these special lenses not only correct your vision but they can alter the way the light enters your eye thereby correcting the effect of your astigmatism, preventing the blurring and distortion astigmatism causes.
Astigmatism can be corrected with Toric lenses either in your glasses or with Toric contact lenses.
Maybe. Depending on the amount of astigmatism you have will determine whether regular (spherical) contact lenses will correct the astigmatism enough for clear, sharp vision.
Astigmatism is caused by an unevenly shaped cornea and causes the light entering your eye to be distorted so you need a special (Toric) lens to not only correct your vision but to correct the light pathway to the retina to prevent blurring and provide clear sharp vision.
The degree of astigmatism is measured in dioptres, a normal -spherical- contact lens should be able to handle astigmatism up to 0.75 dioptres anything over that and you will need a Toric contact lens.
