What is astigmatism?
Astigmatism is where the surface of the eye, the cornea, is steeper in one direction than the other. This results in the cornea looking more like a rugby ball than a football. If a normal soft contact lens is fitted then the distortion of the astigmatism would remain uncorrected as the lens would simply wrap round the cornea, giving poor vision. However, modern soft contact contact lenses can correct astigmatism as the inside surface of the contact lens is made equal and opposite to the astigmatic curvature. These contact lenses are known as either toric contact lenses or contact lenses for astigmatism.
