Toric lenses

What are toric lenses?

Toric lenses are also called cylindrical lenses. The contact lenses correct a cylindrical deviation. This is also called astigmatism. They are contact lenses with a cylinder which help correct the curve of the cornea or lens in your eye. By using a toric lens when you have astigmatism, your deviation is corrected optimally for a clear vision all day long.

Astigmatic eyes are often not entirely round, but have an oval shape. This means that spherical lenses are not comfortable on the eye and can create a blurry vision. Astigmatism usually appears in combination with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Besides your regular power you also need a correction of your cylinder. These toric lenses usually get prescribed by a doctor.

Which types of toric lenses are there?

Toric lenses are available in various types and sizes. You can choose between toric daily lenses, toric weekly lenses, toric monthly lenses and even colour lenses. You can also choose between contact lenses of various brands, like Acuvue, Dailies en Biotrue.

Important notes

  • With toric lenses the lenses need to fit perfectly.
  • The contact lenses have a certain direction and need to fit the eyes well.
  • Thick and thin surfaces and thick and weighted lenses ensure that the lenses remain in place.
  • Contact lenses for astigmatism or toric lenses both correct astigmatism.

Hard, toric lenses remain in place better than soft lenses, but need more time to fit the eyes well. They can also feel drier than soft lenses. Soft toric lenses are easier to handle and feel more comfortable, but should be measured correctly for a great fit.
