Maybe you have just been diagnosed with a condition of the eyes known as astigmatism and you are wondering if it is possible to get astigmatism contacts colored. Well, the good news is that they are available on the market, even though they are generally more on the expensive side when compared with ordinary lenses. They are pricier because they are more complex to make. As a result, very few companies can custom-make the lenses for you.
What is Astigmatism and how do the Lenses Work?
People with this disease have an irregularly shaped cornea or lens. This causes vision problems. In people who have healthy eyes, their corneas are shaped like a golf ball. But if you have been diagnosed with this condition, it means that your cornea is shaped like a football instead. Because the cornea is misshapen, the eyes are not able to focus light rays properly on your retina. And, this is what causes the blurry vision. The specially-made colored lenses help by bending the light rays so that they are focused correctly on the retina.
