Can You Wear Colored Contacts with Astigmatism?

Wearing colored contacts can be a fun way to change up your look. But if you have astigmatism, you might be wondering if it’s even possible to wear colored contacts. The answer is yes. People with astigmatism can successfully wear colored contacts, as long as they get the right type of lenses.

Colored contacts come in two main types: plano and toric. Plano lenses are designed for people without astigmatism, while toric lenses are specifically designed for those with astigmatism. Toric lenses contain a special design that helps them stay in place on the eye and correct vision better than plano lenses do.

When shopping for colored contacts, make sure to tell your optometrist or eye doctor that you have astigmatism so they can help you find the right type of lens for your eyes. Your optometrist will also measure your eyes to determine the exact prescription needed for your new lenses before ordering them from the manufacturer. It’s important to follow their instructions carefully when inserting and removing your new contact lenses so that they don’t cause any damage or discomfort in your eyes over time.

If you take good care of them, wearing colored contacts with astigmatism should not cause any problems or discomfort as long as they’re properly fitted by an experienced professional like an optometrist or ophthalmologist who specializes in contact lens fittings.

Wearing colored contacts astigmatism can be challenging, but with the right lenses and proper care, you can rock a new eye color.
