'Astigmatism & Contact Lenses'

Yes, you can wear contact lenses even if you have an astigmatism

Astigmatism is very common, with over 95% of the population having some degree of astigmatism*.

It is a focusing error which distorts your vision to varying degrees. It is a commonly held belief that you cannot wear contact lenses if you have an astigmatism but this is simply untrue.

Astigmatism usually occurs where the cornea is not totally spherical – usually referred to as rugby-ball shaped rather than football shaped and can be accompanied by myopia or hyperopia as well.

Contact lens advances now mean your prescription lens can be engineered to wrap around your cornea no matter the shape. 

Bayfields contact lens experts specialise in toric lenses designed specifically for those with an astigmatism and help many to enjoy all the fabulous benefits of contact lens wear of all ages and lifestyles.

A full range of daily, weekly, monthly, moisture-rich and extended wear toric lenses are available to give you the ultimate freedom and choice to suit your budget and lifestyle.
