Astigmatism used to be a condition with which you were automatically not qualified to wear contact lenses or even daily contact lenses! - These times are over with the introduction of toric daily contact lenses
If you have a mild astigmatism with a low cylinder or a strong astigmatism with a high cylinder regardless of the axis, you are used to have complications in life.
With new daily toric contact lenses, many people in the UAE and the Middle East are now able to see clarly while enjoying the compfort and simplicity of daily contact lenses.
Astigmatic contact lenses have a disc shape as well but instead of being equally thick across the lens, they are slightly thicker on the bottom of the lens. In this way, there will always be a higher weight on the bottom of the lens - keeping the lens from rotating and changing it's correction axis.
