Astigmatism Correcting Intraocular Lens
The AcrySof IQ Toric Lens Treats Both Cataracts and Astigmatism.
Getting a new lens doesn’t necessarily fix all your vision problems. If you have astigmatism before cataract surgery, a basic lens will not correct it. That means you’ll still need glasses or contacts for clear distance vision.
Special astigmatism correcting IOLs (called toric lenses) can correct your astigmatism while replacing your clouded natural lenses. This means you could have clear, sharp distance vision with reduced dependency on glasses or contacts. Many candidates for astigmatism-correcting IOLs are choosing toric lenses because they recognize the value of better vision, especially when compared to other expenses that improve their daily lives.
