Like all toric contact lenses Frequency 55 Toric XR is designed to correct astigmatism. However, Frequency 55 Toric XR specializes in severe astigmatism. This makes Frequency 55 Toric XR contact lenses very special since contact lenses are usually not recommended for wear by people with high levels of astigmatism. People with high levels of astigmatism are often advised to wear eyeglasses or rigid contact lenses (RGPs) and to stay away from contact lenses, even toric contact lenses. Soft toric contact lenses, like the Frequency 55 Toric lens, are usually restricted for the use of people with mild to moderate astigmatism. Frequency 55 Toric XR has changed all that allowing anyone with astigmatism to use and enjoy the benefits of using contact lenses.
Although the Frequency 55 Toric XR is a monthly disposable contact lens, all contact lenses in the Frequency series is actually designed to be worn for as long as 3 months. With its monthly replacement price tag and 3-month lifespan the Frequency 55 Toric XR is a steal.
Frequency 55 Toric XR is also made of a special material designed to prevent protein build-up. Because of this Frequency 55 Toric XR Is able to provide a clear vision free of cloudy protein build ups day after day even if it used as extended wear. This means that wearers can opt to remove and clean their Frequency 55 Toric lenses only once a week and still enjoy the comfort of a newly cleaned contact lens. This anti protein build-up material also negates the need for use of a protein remover.
Frequency 55 Toric XR also offers a comfortable fit since, unlike most lenses for people with high levels of astigmatism, it uses soft lenses and not the usual rigid contact lenses. It a lot easier to put on and use, is less irritating, harder to dislodge, and overall a more pleasant experience.
Aside from the savings, less frequent cleaning, the comfort it brings and the superior crispiness of vision it gives to people with astigmatism an added perk of using the Frequency 55 Toric XR contact lens is its subtle tint. Because of its tint, users find it easier to locate the contact lens in its solution compared to other clear contact lenses.
