The big break that people with astigmatism have been waiting for
It’s sometimes disheartening to hear from your eye doctor that you can’t wear contact lenses because the treatment for astigmatism hasn’t been incorporated into contact lenses yet. So, you end up being stuck with eyeglasses that either don’t fit you or make you look nerdy. The good news though is that contact lens manufacturers have had a major breakthrough and they now have contact lenses for people with astigmatism! These lenses are called Torics or Toric lenses and are specially-designed to fit comfortably against your irregularly-shaped corneas.
Among the many products in the market, PureVision Toric from Bausch and Lomb is a stand-out. The lenses are made of the revolutionary breakthough material “AerGel” that’s highly oxygen-permeable. Don’t let the high-tech jargon fool you. It just means that the material lets more oxygen flow between the lens and the eyes for a more comfortable feel. It lessens the Dry Eye syndrome because it retains moisture more than regular contact lenses. You don’t have to keep dropping lubricants into your eyes to keep them rehydrated and PureVision Toric contact lenses are guaranteed to feel fresh throughout the day.
PureVision Toric contact lenses are also designed for continuous wear for up to a month. Imagine having only to remember to replace the lenses monthly which is also easier to remember compared to weekly or bi-weekly schedules. You are assured of clear vision all the time. In order to get the best out of your PureVision Toric lenses, you need to follow your eye doctor’s prescribed replacement schedule and to strictly maintain cleanliness with the lens. The worst thing that can happen is you develop bacterial infection because dirt deposits have accumulated in your lens and these also cause blurry vision.
Now that you’ve found a good pair of contact lenses for your astigmatism in PureVision Toric nothing will stand in your way of getting the best visual acuity and comfort all the time.
