Don’t let astigmatism limit you!

Do you have astigmatism?

Have you been told in the past that contact lenses aren’t an option for you?  You’ll be delighted to hear that in recent years, there have been several advances in ‘toric’ contact lenses for astigmatism.  They are now even available in disposables (use once and throw away).  This means that you can now enjoy clear vision with contact lenses despite having astigmatism.

What is astigmatism?

This word describes the shape of your eye. It means that your eye is more oval than round, (shaped more like a rugby ball than a football)..

This can be corrected in glasses by putting extra power in the lens in one direction only compared to the rest of the lens.  This will help compensate for the irregular shape of your eye.

Because it is a correction for the shape of your eye, and not just the distance you’re looking at, it improves vision at all distances, including reading, computers and further away.

Are you tired of wearing glasses full time because contacts weren’t suitable for you before?  It’s definitely worth trying again.  Everyone likes to vary their look from time to time.  Call in, and we can let you try some of the best contact lenses available for astigmatism.
