Contact Lens for Astigmatism

There are contact lenses available for correcting astigmatism in both soft and hard polymer materials.   In general, they are called “toric” lenses if in soft material.   With the modern technology, one can enjoy the comfort of soft contact lens and good vision with toric lenses.   About thirty years ago, majority of people with astigmatism relied on “hard” contact lenses as the popular treatment.   For those who cannot achieve desirable vision with soft  lenses due to specific reason can still opt to be fitted for rigid gas permeable (RGP) so   called “hard” lenses for sharper vision.
