So, what are toric contact lenses?
A toric contact lens has two different powers or curvatures to correct the condition of astigmatism and myopia or hyperopia, as may be the individual case. Toric lenses are made of the same material as the regular contact lenses and the only difference is in their design. These lenses have two powers created with the help of curvatures at different angles.

The design of the lens is also made is a manner that the lens may remain stable and not rotate when you blink your eyes. In some cases, if a patient has the problem of astigmatism in just one eye then he may be prescribed a toric lens for one eye and a normal spherical lens for the other one.

As is the case with spherical lenses, toric lenses may be soft or rigid gas permeable. The reason why toric lenses do not rotate on the eyes as normal lenses do is that they have a particular up and down side to them and they are not spherically symmetric. If they happen to rotate on the eye, they could lead to inaccurate vision.

Toric lenses are now available in various types such as extended wear, frequent replacement, disposable, and even daily disposable format. You could choose the type that suits you the most and thus correct even the most complicated of vision problems.
