Toric Contacts or Accueview? I have astigmatism. how about you?
I just got contacts and i have astigmatism in both of my eyes, right now i'm using toric xr (i believe) for a 7 day trial period. however, sometimes they get blurry and i have to adjust, move or blink them into place. some people say they like Accueview better but i'm not sure, does anyone else have this problem? if so is accueview better?
Additional Details
my culinder is -4.75 OD and -2.00 OS so idk if acuvue makes them that high or not

Acuvue Oasis is good. I also have astigmatism in both eyes

Go for Acuvue Oasys, they are really comfortable and they don't get blurry at all.

Acuvue is better (I have them)

If you are using a Cooper Vision product that says XR, it means extended range. That means you have more astigmatism than is corrected by most contact lenses including Acuvue Oasys. If you really are in the extended range, you don't have many options. Rigid gas permeable lenses will be uncomfortable fro a while but will give you clearer vision with fewer fluctuations.

Highest cylinder Oasys comes in is -2.25. Unless your vision is really crappy with your right eye no matter what you do, you can't wear them.
