1. When taking a history on a previous toric contact lens wearer, ask specifically about how often the lens rotates out of place. A recent study showed that although all toric lenses work relatively well, each lens fails to maintain stability on certain patients.1 It is not possible to predict which lenses works better with which patient.â
2. Think daily disposables. Daily disposable toric lens materials and designs have advanced âsignificantly this year.
3. Hybrid and corneal gas permeable lenses often tackle toric corneas better than soft toric lenses, especially with high cylinder.
