Dailies AquaComfort Plus Toric are a daily disposable contact lens designed for people with astigmatism, who want a lens that is comfortable and convenient, and provides clear vision throughout the day. Simply wear it once and throw it away - you don't need to bother with solutions or cases.
Manufactured by Alcon (previously Cibavision), Dailies AquaComfort Plus Toric use 'Lightstream Technology' for thin, streamlined contact lenses that provide good edge comfort and crystal clear vision that are idea for people with astigmatism. In addition, the contact lenses use a blink activated moisture technology to deliver refreshing comfort all day.
Astigmatism can cause blurring and vision distortion, and regular spherical contact lenses don't correct that blurriness, but with Dailies AquaComfort Plus Toric you can forget you have astigmatism and experience clear, crisp vision with all the health and convenience benefits of daily disposable contact lenses.
If your Optometrist has prescribed Toric contact lenses then you will have some degree of astigmatism that a regular spherical contact lens cant correct.
You will notice a Toric contact lens prescription has addition information relating to the fit of the lens, the Axes and Cylinder powers helps correct your astigmatism by re focusing the light entering your eye to enable clear and stable vision.
Unfortunately manufacturers do not produce Toric contact lens in colours, this is mainly due to the number of lenses that would be required. For each 1 power of a Toric contact lens there is generally 40 fittings, multiply this up by 4 to 12 colours and you see the problem.
If you have low levels of astigmatism and just want to change your eye colour for an evening then check out Freshlook color contact lenses range - just be aware that depending on the amount of astigmatism you have, they may not correct your vision up to driving standards.

I've had a few different lenses over the years and these ones are the softest and easiest to wear. I put them in when I get up in the morning and am usually fine to wear them til 9 or 10pm. In all the time I've worn them I've never had one of these pop out and only once has one ripped on me when I was taking it out.
Ive tried various toric lenses and these are great. They are very comfy, easy to put in and I can easily wear them for 24hrs at a time if needbe without my eye getting dry. With some other brands I found they were "scratchy" or soon dried out in my eye, but these are fine. Only downside is the cost compared to non-toric lenses, but they are similar price to other toric lenses.
I have been ordering these lenses for about 2-3 years now and they have been the best daily Toric lenses I have found so far. As my prescription is uncommon, I have to make sure to order with two weeks in advance just to be sure they will arrive in time but this is fine.
