Many cataract sufferers also suffer from astigmatism, compounding their vision issues. Astigmatism causes blurred or distorted vision at all distances due to an irregularly-shaped cornea. One treatment option is the implantation of a toric lens, such as Trulign™, AcrySof®, and Tecnis® Toric IOLs.
Corneal Relaxing Incision
If you have astigmatism, we may be able to decrease your astigmatism at the time of your cataract surgery to allow you better vision with a corneal relaxing incision. This minimally-invasive procedure allows you to avoid a secondary surgery at a later date to decrease astigmatism.
