Breathable Toric Lenses With Purevision Toric.

Breathable Toric Lenses are contact lenses that are made from a material that allows oxygen to flow through the lens and into the eyes.

Breathable toric lenses are needed because without a breathable material your eyes become red and sore as they are starved of oxygen, to wear lenses for an extended period of time (longer than one day), you need a contact lens made from this material.
