    • Although extended range soft toric contact lenses exist for high astigmats, these patients will often enjoy better vision with rigid contact lens optics, including hybrid and scleral lenses.

    • For presbyopic soft contact lens wearers with symptomatic uncorrected astigmatism, it’s always a good idea to demonstrate how correcting astigmatism can improve distance vision but at the expense of near vision.

    • Front surface toric scleral contact lenses perform surprisingly well at addressing residual astigmatism with good wearing comfort and lens stability.
