Toric colored contacts, as the name suggests, are colored contact lenses that have surfaces that are a combination of cylinders and spheres that is mainly prescribed for people with astigmatism. Many of the lens manufacturers who make colored toric lenses usually make them in the form of blue contact lenses, because of the demand for these colored lenses. There are differences in toric and normal contacts. Toric lenses come with power for astigmatism and power for both, long and short sight vision. Moreover, the lens is thicker at the bottom part to prevent the rotation of the lens when worn.
Apart from blue contact lenses, other colors like gray, green or honey colored toric lenses are also available. You can also avail custom-made Astigmatism colored contacts for a higher price – but it is well worth your money since you can pick the shade of blue, and the lens will be made to comfortably fit your eye. Toric lenses may be bought as a pair (which people with astigmatism in both eyes would require), or as a set of one toric lens and one spherical lens (for people with astigmatism in only one eye). While earlier, toric lenses were not available in color, these days, toric colored contacts are dominating the market.
