AcrySof® Toric IOL
Current technology makes it possible to correct the cataracts that may be clouding your vision - and the astigmatism that may be distorting your vision - all at the same time.
What is Astigmatism?
Sometimes, the surface of the cornea is curved in such a way that vision becomes distorted or blurred. A person who has both cataracts and a corneal astigmatism will not regain high-quality distance vision after cataract surgery unless the astigmatism is also corrected.
What is the AcrySof® Toric IOL?
The AcrySof® Toric intraolcular lens (IOL) replaces your eye's natural clouded lens during ataract surgery. It has the ability to reduce or eliminate corneal astigmatism at the same time it corrects cataracts. The result is typically improved distance vision, and less dependence on spectacles. However, most patients still need corrective lenses for near and immediate tasks. The AcrySof® Toric lens also filters out harmful ultraviolet and blue light.
With the AcrySof® Toric lens, your distance vision can be clear and vibrant, giving you the power to see your best and be your best.
