Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

What is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism occurs when the curvature of your cornea is steeper than normal. While this refractive error isn’t dangerous, it can result in blurry vision and difficulty seeing at night. Along with that, it can make it more challenging to wear contact lenses. Since soft lenses are often too flexible to sit on your cornea correctly when you don't have a standard level of curvature, they can lead to discomfort. However, our optometrists can examine your eyes and recommend contacts for your condition.

The Benefits of Hard to Fit Contact Lenses

Hard to fit contacts include rigid gas-permeable (RGP) and scleral lenses, which can be used for people who have varying degrees of astigmatism. You might also consider ortho-k lenses. These lenses are worn overnight while you sleep and help gently reshape the cornea. They are removed when you wake up, however, the cornea still holds its new shape as you go about your day.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

When you visit us, our optometrists will perform an eye exam to learn about your eye health and determine the lenses that would be most suitable for you. It's possible that only one type of lens will be a good fit for your needs. However, if you can use more than one lens type, we will explain the pros and cons of each. We can also assist you with the insertion and removal process to ensure that the contacts fit comfortably.
