    Toric contact lenses are special made for both astigmatism and nearsightedness or farsightedness.Toric lenses have two powers in them, created with curvatures at different angles (one for astigmatism, the other for either myopia or hyperopia). You can get them from any local optical stores or online optical stores which offer contact lenses.
