People affected by astigmatism in addition to myopia or hyperopia may have had problems with not being able to use contact lenses until recently. Fortunately, times change and now there is a great deal of toric contact lenses available for such people. They combine features of both a cylindrical and spherical lens to provide the best possible result for the most demanding patients.
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, frequent replacement, disposable and even daily disposable forms.
