For patients with astigmatism, Dr. Bruening may recommend a toric lens - a customized lens that not only corrects your vision, but can also correct the astigmatism in your eye. Toric lenses are an upgrade in cost, but they will provide quality vision with decreased dependency on eyeglasses, as they can remove all astigmatism in 99% of all cases. Dr Bruening can correct up to 6 diopters of astigmatism - please ask him about what is possible for you!
