Astigmatism is a fairly common eye condition where the retina is incapable of identifying the single focal point to process the light rays. Astigmatism also deteriorates the shape of the cornea, which makes treatment tedious. Fortunately, alike people with other visual impairments, contact lenses have been a boon in improving visual acuity for astigmatism.
Astigmatism prefers special type of contact lenses i.e. “toric” over conventional spherical lenses to help prevent the “rotation” that is common with spherical lenses. Toric contact lenses are available in different materials, depending on the complexity of the individual’s case.
Not everyone with astigmatism requires torics. People who despite suffering from the condition, stick to conventional circle lenses for astigmatism yet fail to notice improvements, are the right candidates for such customized prosthetic devices. Since astigmatism affects vision at all distances, contacts for astigmatism work differently. Unlike regular contact lenses, contacts with astigmatism have a different degree of power at different meridians. Toric contact lenses are made heavier at the bottom, which lets them auto-adjust to the meridians where the vision correction is required.
The unique correspondence of these special lenses, the material used, and certain other characteristics increase the cost of manufacturing. This is why toric contacts can be slightly more expensive than regular vision contacts.
Although toric contacts are no doubt needed for the purpose of astigmatism-related vision correction, there’s no reason to deprive yourself of the fun provided by colored contacts while you’re at it! You can have both - astigmatism vision correction and the eye color of your dreams.
Earlier there were few options with torics, in terms of design and hues. Fortunately, modern-day technology has made availability possible in a range of colors, designs, and prescriptions. UNIQSO offers colored contacts for astigmatism in the required specifications and in a broad array of exciting shades and lovely designs to choose from. From a cosmetic viewpoint, you can not only wear the eye color of your choice but also opt for a bunch of differently colored lenses to complement varied outfits.
If you’re an anime or cosplay fan, you can double down on the fun quotient. Don’t let your special vision correction needs get in the way of experimenting with adventurous costumes, be they scary, bold, glamorous, or heroic. No matter who or what you’re dressing up as, the key is to get creative a
