Astigmatism Contact Lenses
Astigmatism is a serious eye condition that can hinder your vision. This condition is caused when the cornea is shaped incorrectly, resulting in blurry vision. Our optometrists in Scottsdale and Phoenix have the resources you need to overcome astigmatism’s impact on your vision.
Understanding Astigmatism Contact Lenses
Astigmatism can prevent light from being focused onto the retina at the back of the eye. This causes a refractive error that will result in blurry vision. Fortunately, we have a solution.
Astigmatism contact lenses are designed to improve your vision by correctly bending light. Also known as toric contact lenses, the doughnut shape of toric contact lenses creates different focusing powers throughout the lenses.
Since toric contact lenses have a specific orientation, they need to remain positioned on your eye in a precise way. These lenses are made of a hydrogel material that can help improve your eye’s ability to transfer light to the back of your retina.
