Astigmatism Contact Lenses

Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of the eye that causes blurred distant and near vision. It occurs when the front surface of the eye, known as the cornea, or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves. Astigmatism is fairly common and is usually easily treated, but it can present a challenge to those who want to wear contact lenses to correct vision.

At Bower Eye Care, we make it a priority to offer our hard-to-fit patients a variety of options that leverage the latest contact lens technologies. Our optometrists use advanced equipment to precisely measure your cornea to achieve the best contact lens fit possible. Our clinic has priority status with most contact lens companies. That enables us to carry and order a variety of lenses suitable for patients diagnosed with astigmatism.

Finding The Perfect Fit

Toric contact lenses might be the best choice for you if you are diagnosed with astigmatism. Toric lenses are not spherical like regular contact lenses, but instead are shaped like a slice cut from the side of a three-dimensional ring. This shape creates a different focusing power most suitable for the atypical curvature associated with astigmatism. Other contact lens options for patients with astigmatism include Rigid Gas Permeable lenses (RGP) and hybrid contact lenses with an added comfort component.

Why Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses may be preferable over eyeglasses for people with astigmatism because they provide a wider field of corrected vision. To explore your option for vision correction and the varied contact lenses choices for astigmatism, book an astigmatism consult and fitting session with the team at Bower Eye Care.
