Default Lack of lens choice


I currently buy my Acuvue Oasys lenses for Astigmatism from Specsavers in the UK and thought I would try to save myself money by purchasing from a reputable online store. I have certainly found them cheaper but thought I would look at trying some other lenses for my prescription. What I have found though is that while the online store have plenty of choices of lenses, my current one is apparently the only one which has a Base Curve of 8.6 and a Diameter of 14.5.

My question is, how can there be only one lens product for my eyes? I have trialled other lenses in the past with Specsavers and prior to them Boots, so there must be others out there for my eye dimensions. Do they just give you ones that have slightly different values?
