People with nearsightedness, farsightedness and moderate amounts of astigmatism generally see as well with contacts as they do with glasses. However, high amounts of astigmatism are often more difficult to correct with soft contact lenses. Vision just never seems as crisp as it does with glasses.  However, you could try serval different kinds. Many of these options provide superior vision compared to soft disposable lenses. Some of these lenses include the following:

  • Rigid gas permeable contact lenses

  • Custom designed astigmatism lenses by SpecialEyes.

  • Hybrid lenses (part soft; part rigid) by Synergeyes.

  • Scleral lenses

  • Kerasoft lenses
