Astigmatism/Toric

Astigmatism is a term that describes the shape of the cornea being more curved like a football than perfectly round like a basketball. It is a common, benign condition, and is often hereditary. If uncorrected, the patient will experience blurry images.

If a patient has a high degree of astigmatism, traditional spherical soft lenses are not adequate. Instead, “Toric” contact lenses are available to treat astigmatism. These custom made soft lenses position themselves to correct the patient’s astigmatism and give them exceptional vision.

There are many different types of toric contacts based on the curvature of the patient’s eye and their unique prescription.

Schedule your contact lens fitting today to see if toric contacts are right for you. Click on “Ask the Doctor” or call our Downers Grove office at (630) 969-3268 or our Naperville office at (630) 357-3511.
