What is astigmatism?

If you have astigmatism and you want contact lenses you might have heard that you will have to settle for less than perfect vision or even that you can’t wear contact lenses at all.  But you can enjoy the freedom and convenience of contacts with vision as clear and sharp as with glasses thanks to accelerated stabilisation design a breakthrough technology you will find only in Acuvue contact lenses for astigmatism.

What is astigmatism anyway? It’s all about the curve of the eyes surface, in an eye with perfect vision that curve is round and even, with astigmatism it is not its asymmetrical so light focuses on more than one place on your retina and you experience blur.  It’s different than  being short or long  sighted where your eyes are a little too long or too short from front to back those are an easy fix for regular contact lenses, pop on a pair and everything’s clear.  But regular lenses aren’t built to handle astigmatism’s irregular curves and might not offer the clear vision you are looking for.  For the clearest vision you need contact lenses for astigmatism also called toric lenses which work by aligning their corrective powers with your eyes curves.

The catch is if you move around quickly or tilt your head like when you watch T.V.  the lens can rotate out of alignment blurring your vision, that’s where Accelerated Stabilisation Design comes in. Acuvue used high speed filming and computer modelling to study how eyelids and contacts interact, leading to the ASD breakthrough.

Acuvue contact lenses with ASD have four zones that work dynamically with your natural eyelid movement every time you blink it actively aligns your lenses helping them stay where they need to be however active you might be. Only Acuvue contact lenses for astigmatism feature ASD, even if you are also short or long sighted they will deliver clear, sharp vision and the comfort Acuvue is known for, so you can do all the things you want to do with contact lenses whether its sports, playing with the kids, driving,  relaxing with a movie or just feeling good about looking your best.
