AcrySof® Toric -- The leading choice for cataracts and astigmatism.
If you have astigmatism and cataracts, we may recommend another advanced lens called the AcrySof® Toric lens. It’s the first IOL that treats preexisting astigmatism at the same time it corrects cataracts, so you don’t have to undergo two separate procedures.
If less dependence on eyeglasses for distance vision is important to you, you now have a better option. The unique design of the AcrySof® Toric lens provides significantly improved distance vision and may reduce the need of corrective lenses.
What is the AcrySof® Toric IOL?
The AcrySof® Toric lens is a foldable, single-piece lens that an eye surgeon implants during cataract surgery to replace the clouded lens. The unique design of the AcrySof® Toric IOL makes it possible to reduce corneal astigmatism and significantly improve uncorrected distance vision.
We’re proud to offer AcrySof® lenses as part of our ongoing commitment to our patients who want the latest advances, the best vision, and the highest quality of life.
