Introduction In the cases of myopia, and astigmatism, contact lenses often provide a better correction of both visual acuity and peripheral vision than glasses. Astigmatism may be corrected either by hard contact lenses or soft toric contact lenses. Objective To report contact lenses rigid gas permeable for management of high astigmatism errors. Method A case report. Case Report A 30 year-old woman came with chief complaint of seeing blurred distance vision. There was discomfort in using her own glasses and she want to use a hard contact lenses for her refractive correction. Visual acuity for the RE 0.05 PH 0.32 F-2 and LE 0.08 PH 0.4 F-1. Best corrected visual acuity of the RE was 0.8 F-2 using correction S-5.00 C-4.00 x 170 and the LE 0.8 F-2 using correction S-4.50 C-3.50 x 175. Near vision binocular 0.8 M/N 6 at 30 cm. Examination of the anterior and posterior segment was normal. Patient was diagnosed with compositus myopic astigmatism of both eye. Patient was managed by a RGP contact lens. Best visual acuity with RGP S -5.75 D was 0.8 in RE and S-5.00 D was 0.8 in LE. Conclusions There are several choices for the management of patient with refractive errors. On this patient RGP contact lens is used for the therapy. RGP lenses are very good for correcting astigmatism because of cost and ease of fit, fitting spherical lenses is preferred wherever possible.
