What is a TORIC Lens?

There are two types of Toric lenses. Toric lenses are designed for people with a significant degree of astigmatism.
1. Toric IOL’s (Intraocular Lens) as a cataract implant option.
2. Toric Contact Lenses.
Have you been told you can't wear soft contact lenses because you have astigmatism? The difference is in the design of the lens. Toric lenses have two powers in them, created with curvatures at different angles (one for astigmatism, the other for either myopia or hyperopia). There's also a mechanism to keep the contact lens relatively stable on the eye when you blink or look around. To provide crisp vision, toric contact lenses cannot rotate on your eye.
