    Of course you can. There are many types of contacts that can correct astigmatism, like soft toric contact lenses. If you wear bifocals, which means you need lenses for both near and far. Nowadays many people who want to correct both astigmatism and presbyopia choose to wear one lens for distance and the other one for near, which is also called monovision. You should go to have an eye exam and the optometrist will prescrible the contact lenses for you.

    Surely you can. To meet different people's need, there are different types of contacts including rigid and soft bifocal contact lenses, disposable contact lenses that correct presbyopia. But first you need to make sure you are suitable for wearing contacts.


    There are the contacts that can correct both astigmatism and presbyopia. You can go to any optical store to have your eyes tested. The optician will make the contact lenses that fix your vision problem properly.

    There are bifocal contacts for people who wear bifocal glasses. soft multifocal contacts can also correct astigmatism by using a toric lens design. But you are required to have an eye exam for wearing contacts.
