Soft Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

For years, many people with astigmatism believed they could never wear soft contact lenses. And, many who were fitted for toric contact lenses to correct astigmatism often found the performance unsatisfactory.

Today, toric lenses have been greatly improved by advances in technology. With the help of computer-aided manufacturing techniques, CooperVision and other contact lens manufacturers can create toric contact lenses that will best fit many types of astigmatism.

Regular soft contact lenses have only one curvature for correcting vision. Toric lenses have two correcting curvatures. Regular soft contact lenses freely rotate while being worn. Soft toric lenses are designed to fit on the eye like a hand-in-glove and therefore should not rotate.

Come in to our eye care cinics in Danbury, CT or Stamford, CT today for a complete contact lens fitting and to learn more about soft contact lenses for astigmatism.
