Welcome to our comprehensive guide on contact lens options for individuals with high astigmatism. At 2020eyemax, we understand the challenges that come with this condition and are here to help you find the best solution for clear and comfortable vision.

Understanding High Astigmatism: High astigmatism occurs when the cornea or lens of the eye has a more pronounced irregular shape, leading to distorted vision. It can be challenging to correct with standard contact lenses, but advancements in technology have opened up new possibilities for improving vision for those with this condition.

Types of Contact Lenses for High Astigmatism:

  1. Toric Contact Lenses:

    • Toric lenses are specifically designed to correct astigmatism. They have different powers in different meridians of the lens to compensate for the irregular shape of the eye.
      These lenses come in various designs, including soft toric lenses for daily wear and extended wear options for added convenience.
      Our optometrists will perform a detailed assessment to determine the precise prescription and fit for your toric lenses, ensuring optimal vision correction.
  2. Hybrid Contact Lenses:

    • Hybrid lenses combine the benefits of soft and rigid gas permeable (GP) lenses. They have a soft outer skirt for comfort and a rigid center for clear vision.
      These lenses are an excellent option for patients with high astigmatism who may not achieve satisfactory results with traditional soft lenses.
  3. Scleral Contact Lenses:

    • Scleral lenses are larger in diameter and rest on the sclera (white part) of the eye, providing a stable and comfortable fit.
      They are highly customizable, making them suitable for complex prescriptions, including high astigmatism.
      Our experienced team will guide you through the fitting process to ensure optimal vision and comfort with scleral lenses.
