Today contact lens can be used to treat different eye issues such as myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism etc. There are several online stores which provide ‘contact lenses’ (better known as ‘Kontaktlinser’ in the Norwegian language) for different needs. Astigmatism is one of the most common eye problem faced by people these days.
It is basically a defect in the eye or in a lens caused by divergence from spherical curvature, which results in hazy images, as light rays are barred from meeting at a common focus. One of the primary symptoms for this eye disorder is the blurry vision.
It takes place when the cornea is not completely round in shape and one axis is sharper than the other. This disorder can also be caused by the abnormality or inclination of the natural lens inside your eye.
Till a few years ago it was quite hard to correct astigmatism with contact lenses in comparison to the use of eyeglasses. But, the situation has been upturned now. A lot of these tiny eye devices have been designed to cure astigmatism, for instance, the ‘multifocal contact lenses for astigmatism’ (better known as ‘multifokale kontaktlinser for astigmatisme’ in the Norwegian language).
Another type of lens for this eye issue is the toric lens and are readily available in the market in a variety of lens, materials, fittings, patterns, and power. Moreover, there are soft contact lenses which take up the eye’s front part like a glove and do not have the capacity to rectify astigmatism in its fundamental spherical form.
