Toric contact lenses: Check with your optomitrist who prescribed them. Some times the fit and ride of contact requires multiple visits and changes. It is not usually a perfect scenario. Particularluy after every blink there could be a 1 second distortion while the contact lens settles back into the right position.

No: If the prescription is correct, the lenses should enhance your vision. Return to the eye care professional who prescribed them and have them check.
