Toric Contact lens
Short and long sighted prescriptions can be corrected with a “spherical” contact lens, whereas astigmatic prescriptions require a “toric” contact lens. These toric lenses allow better accuracy when correcting the distortion that is seen with astigmatism. Toric lenses are available in daily and reusable lenses.
Multifocal Lens (for Presbyopia)
Multifocal lenses are suitable for patients who use varifocal glasses or reading glasses. A multifocal lens provides a stronger prescription for near vision, whilst maintaining distance vision at the same time. These are also available as a daily and reusable lens.
