How does acuvue advance for astigmatism differ from acuvue toric lenses?

Toric contact lens: Toric contact lenses correct astigmatism. Acuvue makes 3 astigmatism correcting lenses: acuvue advance for astigmatism, acuvue moist for astigmatism (a 1 day lens) and acuvue oasys for astigmatism (more for dry eye patients). All are toric contact lenses.
