AeroFool,How wonderful to hear from someone who already knows "Namaste". I'm a new Buddhist, and ran into the greeting in my search. I just love the inclusiveness of the thought.I did look into gas permeable, but my Dr advised against it. Apparently, getting a progressive lens that would stay in place with the astigmatism was not yet possible. Progressive glasses lenses are held in place relative to the eye, and the progressive portion is an hour-glass shape in the center of the visual field. In contact lenses, the hour-glass shape must be built as a ring around the lense, as the contacts spin while worn. In astigmatism, you probably know, the front surface of the eye is football shaped rather than round. As you can imagine, when the lens is worn, the world is only in focus when the football lines up with the lens just right. That's how it was explained to me. I could opt for single vision lenses, using one eye for far and the other for near. I didn't go for it because I like my depth perception too much to give up.I noticed on the link you supplied that a refractive lense exchange could correct for my astigmatism as well as correcting the nearsightedness. That was the best solution I've read about so far.Are you wearing a single-vision prescription lens or something else?Namaste, Penny
