Last year my eye doctor added a prismatic correction to my eyeglass prescription. It is difficult to keep my glasses aligned so that the correction works. Would contact lenses help with this correction?
I am nearsighted and have astigmatism. I curently have progressive lenses. I wore contact lenses many years ago.
It depends what the prisms are for and how strong. I'm not aware of any contact lenses that have built in prism so if you you need the prism to keep from seeing double, you likely need to wear glasses. You may want to try bifocals if you are having trouble with the progressives.
