Do You Have Astigmatism?

The first step in the process of selecting the right brand of contact lenses is to determine whether or not you have a significant amount of astigmatism. Here’s how you do that:

  • Take a look at your prescription for glasses. Do you see a number in the ‘Cylinder’ box for either the right or the left eye?
    • If you do… you have some astigmatism.
      • If your ‘Cylinder’ number is less than -0.75 (i.e., -0.25 or -0.50), then you don’t need a contact lens for astigmatism!
      • If your ‘Cylinder’ number is -0.75 or higher, you will need a contact lens for astigmatism!
    • If you don’t… you don’t have any astigmatism!

    • People tend to inadequately clean their monthly/biweekly lenses.
    • People who have had contact lens related health issues in the past.
    • People who enjoy doing waters ports.
  • Biweekly/Monthly lenses are best for:
    • People who wear their contacts often (more that half the days of the week).
    • People who are responsible and effective at cleaning their lenses.
    • People who are on a budget.

What’s Your Yearly Budget?
