I currently wear Acuvue Advanced for Asthigmatism in one of my eyes but
I dont know what my level of asthigmatism is. The lens is adequete for
me but I do notice sometime that it is a little blurry possibly do to
rotation. Hopefully you will get the results that you want. I know
first person that asthigmatism is a pain.

I disagree totally- the majority of my colleagues are very
caring. It's more of a situation where the provider
starts to run out of ideas after trying so many cl's
and frustration from both sides emerge. For some
patients there might be only one contact lens that
might work.

If the problem is due to rotation, trying a steeper
base curve, such as the Hydrosoft toric (bc 8.3) or
the Proclear tailor made toric (8.0 bc) may work
for you.

spewed forth :

I've got high minus plus about as much cylinder correction as you do.
No soft lens I've ever tried has done an acceptable job for me. I was
fitted for a set of RGPs earlier this year. I like the vision, but I
didn't like the "break in"; I didn't enjoy that 20 years ago either,
when I got my first set of RGPs.

I have loads of cats and hobbies that produce fuzz, so I don't wear my
contacts at home.

Hi,

I have tried quite a few contact lenses for astigmatism. B&L Softlens
66, Vertex Toric, Aspect Vision Care toric 55, CooperVision Preference
Toric, CooperVision Frequency 55, and some no name that has serial
number 924552508400 and BL121(3).

My perscription is 0 spherical in both eyes, and -2.25 cylindrical in
the left eye, -2.75 cylindrical in the right eye. All of these contact
lenses with the exception of one (forgot which one but the lens is
puckered out a lot at the pupil) simply rotate in my eye and focus
rarely. The one that did work caused halos and edge glare due to a
small optic zone.

I have just ordered acuvue advance for astigmatism lenses for trial,
has anyone had any experiance with them.

Does anyone know any other lenses that I should try? From experience
doctors really could care less once they take my money, I am now going
to my second one.

Thanks,
Nite Rider

I'm not a doctor, but based on my experience, I'd sure give RGP (rigid
gas permeable, i.e. "hard") contacts a try. They blow away my
astigmatism with no toric, so no rotation issues. I can't say whether
your level of astigmatism would require toric RGP or not, I've heard
different stories from different sources.

I'd suggest seeking a doctor who specializes in contacts or RGP, since
some docs know more than others in this area.
