Astigmatism is a condition whereby the shape of the cornea or lens is irregular. Instead of being shaped round, the corneas of people with astigmatism are often oblong. This causes a refractive error, distorting light as it enters your eyes. As a result, images appear blurry. The symptoms of astigmatism include headaches, sore, and tired eyes, feeling sleepy when you read, problems driving at night.

Contact lenses that correct astigmatism are sometimes referred to as toric lenses. These lenses are thicker at the bottom, in order to keep them stable on the eye, this results in stable vision and comfort. They come in dailies, two weeklies and monthlies. If you’d like to try contact lenses, you’re welcome to book your appointment.
