A: After you have tried the suggested key words, try these options: 1) Try something less specific, instead of deodorant soap, try soap. 2) Try a synonym for the product. For example, instead of enteric aspirin, try low-dose aspirin. 3) Try a different category. For example, cotton balls may not only be in the beauty area, they may also be in the first aid area.

Q: What are some commonly used terms for contact lenses?

Astigmatism: a condition in which the cornea of the eye is asymmetrically curved, causing out-of-focus vision.

Axis: (AX): the location of the astigmatism, and indicates where to locate the cylinder. It is a number between 0 and 180. The axis is only used on prescriptions for toric lenses.

Base Curve (BC): the inside of the curve of the center of the lens, which covers the cornea. It determines how the contact lens fits the eye. It is usually a number between 8.0 and 10.0, and is measured in millimeters.

Cylinder (Cyl): an area of extra power, to correct for astigmatism. It is a number between -0.50 to -3.00. (For contact lenses it will always be negative.) The cylinder is only used on prescriptions for toric lenses.

Diameter (DIA): the distance from one edge of the lens to the other. It determines how the contact lens will fit in your eye. It is usually a number between 13.6 and 14.8.

Eye Care Prescriber: a professionally qualified person registered to test eyes and conduct other examinations to detect eye diseases and conditions. He or she must also be qualified to correct abnormal vision. Optometrists or licensed opticians are examples of professionally qualified eye care prescribers.

Power/Sphere (SPh): the power refers to the strength of the contact lens. It is shown with a minus sign (-) for myopia (nearsightedness) or a plus sign (+) for hyperopia (farsightedness). It is a number between -0.50 to -20.00 for myopia and +0.50 to +20.00 for hyperopia. The power for each eye may be the same or it may be different. The power for your eyeglass prescription may be different from the power for your contact lens prescription.

Toric Lenses: are contact lenses designed to correct astigmatism by providing two different optical powers at right angles to each other (one for astigmatism, the other for either myopia or hyperopia).
