Colored Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

Everyone wants to look special in some way and be noticed by others, though this can be quite difficult these days especially for those living in cities packed with millions of different personalities. Are you tired of your current appearance and feel as if no one is giving you a chance to show your true colors. Then why not consider wearing colored contacts? It seems simple, but they can actually altar your entire face, if you have brown eyes make them green and if you already have green eyes make them blue, there are so many different options. But what if I have astigmatism? Times have changed, colored contacts lenses for astigmatism are now more accessible and cost much less then they did a few years ago.

In the past people with astigmatisms were not able to buy colored contact lenses. There was even a time when having this condition meant that you couldn't even wear regular contact lenses, or that you had to buy a specially made pair that would cost you three times as much as the normal ones. Luckily now that colored contacts have been around for a while developments in technology have allowed for the design of specially made toric lenses. This is great news for people with astigmatism who want to change the color of their eyes.

What is astigmatism?

I've had astigmatism for years, but no one has actually taken the time to tell me what it is. This condition occurs when the cornea or the front part of your eye is not properly shaped, instead of being perfectly curved like a globe it looks more lop sided like an egg, larger on one side. This means that when light passes through the front of your eye ball it doesn't focus sharply and objects can look blurred at certain angles. The causes of astigmatism are not fully understood, but it is believed to be a genetic condition that is passed down to you.

How do toric lenses help astigmatism?

To make contact lenses wearable by people with astigmatism they first need to visit an optician who will measure the size and angle of the misshaped cornea and these numbers will be used to create a personalized pair of contact lenses that have a perfectly shaped cornea. The same process is used for glasses, though many people have reported that their eyesight is a lot better when wearing contacts then when wearing spectacles. This has to do with the distance between your eye and the lens, with contact lenses there is no distance at all. Wearing contact lenses is the closest you'll get to having 20-20 vision without opting for laser eye surgery.

What toric colored lenses are available?

In terms of choice for astigmatism colored contacts you are limited to one company 'Ciba Vision', fortunately this is a well known brand that offers high quality lenses. Ciba vision has developed a colored toric brand called Freshlook Colorblends Toric, which comes in a variety of unique colors and pattern styles. Alternatively, you can also consider Durasoft 3 Optifit Toric color contact lenses. Toric contact lenses are basically the same as regular color contacts; they come in two types, opaque and enhancement lenses. The type that you choose depends entirely on the natural color of your eyes and what type of effect you're looking for.

If you're starting out with darker colored eyes and want a light blue or green shade, then opaque contact lenses would suit your situation. They are non-translucent lenses with a small hole over the iris so that you can see what you're doing. If you have been blessed with light blue or green toned eyes then you may want to consider using the enhancement contact lenses, this are see through tinted lenses that aim to bring out the detail and brightness of your natural color.

Though colored contacts lenses for astigmatism are now openly available, the price still hasn't changed that much over the years. If you want to buy a pair of these specialized lenses it will cost you twice as much as the regular versions. There are several shops selling the Ciba Vision ColorBlend contacts and it might be worth trying a few optical stores to find a good price. Another option is to go to an optician and get your eyes tested and measured for a pair of new contact lenses, then search the internet for a company that is offering special deals, you'll be surprised at how cheap contacts are being sold for these days. Remember to enter your eye measurements exactly or you'll end up with a pile of useless plastic.
