I thought I'd ask you optometrists about this. The last time I had an eye exam (about 4 years ago) I was prescribed a Toric contact lens because I had an astigmatism. Well, I just had my eye exam again today, and I was prescribed a different set of contacts, that are not toric lenses (I don't think, at least). So my question is, does an astigmatism completely correct itself after wearing a toric lens? I can see perfectly in the new contacts I was prescribed (I was given a trial pair), so I'm not questioning the optometrist. I was just wondering if an astigmatism can be completely corrected, or is it something you have forever? Thanks for any of you replies!
