Free Trial Pair of Colored Toric Contact Lenses
If you have astigmatism and want crisp, clear vision with the convenience of a disposable lens, consider Vertex Toric contacts. Vertex Toric lenses are manufactured using CooperVision’s patented UltraSync® technology, a process that produces a perfect edge on every contact lens. This contact lens design provides more stability and less rotation, ensuring that vision and comfort are consistent with each new pair of contact lenses.
Vertex Toric lenses are manufactured with a light blue handling tint, which makes the lenses easier to see when inserting and removing. The tint is simply designed to facilitate locating the contact lenses in solution. Plus, with a disposable contact lens system, you’re always equipped with an additional pair in case you lose or damage a lens (which is a nice convenience to have).
Toric contacts are created with curvatures at different angles, one to correct astigmatism, the other to correct either nearsightedness or farsightedness. Essentially there is a weighted part on the contact to keep it at a certain position and angle when you blink.
Toric lenses have two powers of lenses in them, created with curvatures at different angles. One angle is for astigmatism and the other angle is for either myopia or hyperopia. There is also a mechanism to keep the contact lens relatively stable on the eye when you blink or look around, which is like a small weight to help keep the contact lens in the right place on your eye. To provide crisp vision, they cannot rotate on your eye as your eye moves around.
Torics are also available in many colors that either change or enhance your natural eye color and are available as frequent replacement, disposable and even daily disposable contact lenses. So go ahead and have some fun with the color of your eyes if you want to.
Vertex Toric contacts are designed for people with astigmatism who want the convenience of a disposable lens. They were formerly known as Encore Toric – the name and packaging have been changed but the lens is the same.
So if you have astigmatism, talk to your eye doctor about getting toric contact lenses which will give you clear vistion with all the conveniences offered with normal, daily wear contact lenses. There are a variety of manufacturers to choose from and most offer free, trial contact lenses for you to try for about 30 days or so.
Colored Toric Contact Lenses
If you do want colored toric contact lenses, then they are going to be a little hard to find. There are not a lot of brands of colored toric lenses to choose from. You could get them custom made. It’ll depend on how severe your astigmatism is. Durasoft makes them. Freshlook does also. Start with those brands.
