If you have astigmatism, you can enjoy comfort, convenience, and good health with Frequency®55 Toric lenses. This toric lens is made specifically to correct astigmatism by compensating for the irregular surface of your cornea. Even significant amounts of astigmatism can be corrected with the extended range of Frequency 55 Toric XR. The lens’ precise FIPS™
(Finished Inside Polymerization System) manufacturing process ensures reliable comfort and an easy fit on your sensitive eyes.
Astigmatism is a common visual distortion caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. The surface of the cornea is toric – oblong in shape like a football – instead of perfectly round like a basketball. Light rays passing through an oblong cornea bend unequally, causing two focusing points. Consequently, vision is blurred at most distances.
Forty-five percent of people who require vision correction have some degree of astigmatism. Symptoms include squinting, occasional headaches and eyestrain. In most cases, myopia or hyperopia accompanies astigmatism.
For the past two decades, millions who have had astigmatism believed they could never wear soft contact lenses. Many fitted with toric lenses for astigmatism often found the performance unsatisfactory. If you are one of them, we suggest you try Frequency®55 Toric Lenses.
