    Normal contacts just have only one power on the lenses, for myopia or hyperopia. Astigmatism contacts are sometimes refered to as toric contact lenses which have two power on the lenses which are created with curvatures at different angles (one for astigmatism, the other for either myopia or hyperopia).

    Normal contacts have only one power, either for far or near. While astigmatism contacts have two powers in the lens, one is for astigmatism, the other is for far or near.
