I have an ad for optix contacts for astigmatism . I have astigmatism as well as I will be 50 this December and have gotten glasses for reading and mild for distance . My optomitrist only gave me two options ! 1) contacts for distance and then reading glasses (not acceptable) 2) One contact in 1 eye for reading one in the other for distance ! scary! What do you know about optix ? Could they really be great or am I doomed to bifocals for life?

The Airoptix contact lenses are excellent contacts

They are a 30 day wear lens and are designed so that you can sleep in them

They also have a the bifocal version of the Airoptix contact lenses but maybe your astigmatism is too high
for you to try them

So I would go ahead and try one of the two options he gave you

Additionally, he will also guide you and let you know if the Airoptix is appropriate for you
or if another brand is

I hope this answered your question
