Vertex is a brand of contact lenses manufactured by CooperVision to help correct astigmatism. If you have an astigmatism, it means that your cornea or lens is stretched into an irregular shape, which makes images blurry. You might have difficulty finding contact lenses that allow you to see clearly because of the astigmatism. If your contacts are not perfectly weighted, they will move every time you blink, causing your vision to lose focus constantly. This is not an ideal way to see the world, so you might have resigned yourself to wearing glasses forever.
CooperVision Vertex toric contacts are manufactured specifically for astigmatism. Their patented UltraSync Technology produces a superior edge on every lens. This lens design provides more stability and less rotation, ensuring that vision and comfort are consistent with each new pair.
For handling purposes, Vertex toric contacts feature a light blue tint. This makes the lens easier to see when you are inserting it and removing it from your eye. It is also helpful if you accidentally drop it on the bathroom countertop when you are getting ready in the morning. The blue tint stands out against your countertop or sink, so you can find it and keep using it (after cleaning!) instead of replacing a perfectly good lens.
Vertex toric contact lenses are weekly disposable soft contact lenses. They feature a biweekly replacement schedule, allowing you to double the replacement time of most weekly contacts from one week to two weeks. It also halves the price of using weekly contacts. This extended wear time does not impact the crisp, clear vision provided by the contact lenses.
It is often difficult to find contacts if you suffer from an astigmatism. Getting the right weight and rotation to offset your astigmatism can be a daunting process until you find the contact lens that works for you. Vertex is one choice, and CooperVision has taken steps to ensure vision clarity with every blink. Talk to your eye doctor about how you can get out of glasses and back into contacts if you suffer from an astigmatism.
