Astigmatism remains one of the most common conditions Optometrists treat on a daily basis. According to research by leading contact lens manufacturer Johnson and Johnson 47% of optical patients have astigmatism.
Astigmatism is when your eyes or eye is not completely spherical in shape, basically your eye is more rugby ball shaped than football shaped, this causes the light entering your eye to distort, creating blurred or distorted vision.
If you have astigmatism you will need contact lenses specially designed to remain stable whilst blinking so that you experience clear, distortion free vision, manufacturers can do this by using one of three options
Contact lenses to correct astigmatism are called Toric Contact lenses or possibly contact lenses for Astigmatism, these can sometimes be confused with aspheric contact lenses.
A toric contact lens is specially designed to correct the distortion in vision caused by the unevenly shaped cornea of an astigmatic eye, whereas an aspheric contact lens can correct the distortion caused by the contact lens itself, thereby reducing blurring and providing clearer brighter vision.

I wear a high prescription for myopia and have astigmatism in both eyes. These lenses stay in place well and are comfortable to wear. Easy to insert and remove. The light blue tint makes them easier to see as well. I'm very impressed with these contact lenses.
