I already wear regular prescripted contact lenses but have astigmatism
I wear acuvue oasys and don't have much trouble with it except for dry eyes.

anyway i'm going to a few parties and wanted to stand out so i wanted to purchase
Circle lenses (The lenses that widen your eyes/pupils) in a gray color that are in my prescription
or some kind of prescripted cute halloween one

i'm buying these online and have already found websites with cute ones and my prescriptions.

the only issue is that they're not made for astigmatism and they're very cheap obviously because they're not correctly fitting it into your eye.

My friend has astigmatism and bought purple circle lenses in her prescription and she says she sees very blurry out of them.

IS there a way they can work for me with astigmatism?
Should i possibly buy them in a higher or stronger power/prescripton?

-4.75 BC 8.6 DIA 14.5 CYL/AXIS -1.25

LEFT EYE: -4.50 BC 8.5 dia 14.5 axis/ -1.25

These are my current pres. for my regular contacts.

if anyone can help please do

Actually, when the sphere power is 3 times higher ( or more, like yours is ) than the cylinder power, it usually works fairly well to compensate when the Cyl power isn't over - 1.50

A - 5.25 for the right and a - 5.00 for the left should give you acceptable vision for occasional wear ,

The most that can ever be added to the sphere power is 0.50 , so almost half the astigmatism is covered , that isn't so bad.
