Astigmatism occurs early on and is mistakenly thought to be an eye disease or eye health issue. It simply refers to the shape of the cornea that may distort vision and cause eye strain or headaches during long periods of reading. An early eye exam is therefore recommended to avoid learning challenges from uncorrected astigmatism.
There are now a number of contact lens options for patients with astigmatism. Gas permeable contact lenses are custom fit and take some some time getting used to. Toric disposable contact lenses, on the other hand are now widely available and easy to fit and replace.
Daily disposable toric contact lenses are soft contact lenses specially designed to rotate the contact lens over the eye and feature subtle power variation to correct vision associated with astigmatism. Every patient and eye is unique, so our opticians will fit a few different brands and designs to ensure a comfortable fit and clear vision.
