Astigmatism sucks. Theres no need to not be blunt about it. It can cause serious discomfort, blurriness, redness, and dryness. It isn’t necessary and can seriously hinder you at the worst of times. There are countless brands of contacts out there that possess “The cure for astigmatism,” but one feels- more often than not- that it's just a marketing gimmick.
Air Optix for Astigmatism, however, is no such gimmick. The people over at CibaVision actually give a hoot about your eyes. They understand the frustrations associated with astigmatism, so consider these lenses their gift to you. They work, they provide comfort, and did I mention they work? Their Tricomfort Technology retains moisture, allows your eyes to breath, and resists deposit throughout the entire lens wearing cycle. It literally is the cure to astigmatism wrapped up in a neat little package. The minute you- for lack of a better term- try them on, you'll immediately notice the difference, even more-so after prolonged use. There has to be a catch though right? After all, this is the stuff of miracles- it can't be all good can it?
That, my friends, depends on your definition of good. Like most Air Optix lenses, the price is slightly higher- albeit necessarily so. If you think about what you're getting- and what the lenses are correcting- then it only makes sense to spend the extra few bucks. You only get one pair of eyes, so treat them well. If you have astigmatism, you really can't do much better than this pair of lenses. Give them a try- trust me- you won't be returning to your old pair anytime soon.
