    You sure you in this business?

    If you are a dispenser fitting contacts you should know for such a common Rx. You should also know things like "K" readings, and corneal diameter are needed for anyone to answer such a question.
    Suspect you are consumer. However, almost every major manufacture has an assortment of contact lens designs for such an Rx. You do have one of the CLQ's or Tyler's don't you. Or you can find such things out at the various manufacture's websites.
    B&L, Vistakon, Ciba, Cooper, and God knows how many companies have a variety of products that would fill this Rx. Remember the "One size fits all !" Concept is garbage to begin with and the more complicated the fit and Rx the less it has any relevance to anything.

    Thanks Chip;

    I should have been more clear...I have tried Cooper Encore with limited success. The other Hydrogel freq replacement CL"s are Freq 55 (which is encore for OD's) and the only other lens is preference toric that comes in a -2.25 cyl. I would like these to be stock and not custom.
    I do not have a up to date CL journal.
    I would really prefer silicon hydrogel -2.25cyl freq replacement stock lenses.
    If you and God could e-mail me all the lenses that will work, I would be forever in your debt.
    I will look at the specs and make sure they are compatible to the customers "K's" and hvis.
    Thats haliopt

    Thanks Chip....Best tip was pure vision...Oasys and focus toric do not come in a -2.25 cyl..I will check your other recommendations to see if you got any others correct when I have time ( how do you like it) HaHa poopoo.

    Of course, K's and corneal diameter are important, but I think you'll find that the Purevision will have more variable rotation than the others. Consider going down in cyl to -1.75 and adjusting the sphere accordingly.

    The Oasys for Astigmatism tends to be a rather stable lens, as is the Biomedics Toric (at least for flatter K's).

    Actually the K's are the key to success or failure. The PureVision works pretty well on corneas between 44.00 and 47 diopters. Flatter it tends to "pop away" steeper it tends to spin. Works just like any other toric lens in this respect.
    What exactly is your problem with each lens you have tried (other than an incompetent fitter) like what specificly. Did they rotate? Do they Hurt? Do you have trouble seeing just before the blink? Does vision take a while to come around after insertion? Does vision get worse during the day?

    What?
