What is the difference between soft toric contact lenses and hard toric contact lenses? How much do hard toric contact lenses monthly cost?
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.
Hard toric contact lenses (normally made of gas permeable material) are at first usually more difficult to get used and adapt to. They move around more on the eye and are less stable. Sometimes however the vision is sharper in these lenses. They do not need to be replaced frequently, and may last you two years or more, so there is no need for a regular replacement scheme, but there is a scheme available to pay for your aftercare and contact lens solution. The choice between these and soft toric lenses will depend on your prescription and shape of your eye. By far the most popular are soft lenses. For the costs involved you need to ask in store.
