Air Optix for Astigmatism is a one of a kind toric contact lens from CIBA Vision. The lens is thin to give good comfort and vision throughout the whole day. Air Optix for Astigmatism is a silicone hydrogel lens; it allows a lot of oxygen to get to the eye which gives it freshness. The material also retains moisture, preventing the eyes from drying out, and resisting buildup of unhealthy deposits.
The special design stabilizes the lens on the eye, which minimizes blurred vision for patients with astigmatism. In a study from 2009, Air Optix for Astigmatism was compared with other toric silicone hydrogel lenses. The lens was rated high in comfort and handling.

When ordering toric lenses, you will have to enter the values “axis” and “cylinder” besides power, base curve and diameter. Axis tells where on the eye the error is, and cylinder how big it is.
