Toric Testimonial

toric iolGlaucoma-Cataract Consultants now offers a new option for those patients with astigmatism who wish to reduce there spectacle or contact lens need following cataract surgery or clear lens extraction. The Acrysof Toric IOL.

The recently FDA-approved Acrysof Toric IOL is recommended for the visual correction of adults with cataracts and astigmatism. Astigmatism refers to the optical irregularity of the eye caused by unequal curvature of the cornea or the crystalline lens. Present in large amounts it can blur functional vision at distance, midrange and near. The commonly used Spherical or Monofocal IOLs fail to correct corneal astigmatism. The Acrysof Toric IOL is able to provide individuals with astigmatic correction following natural lens extraction. The lens design uses optical principles similar to toric contact lens deigns.

The FDA has found that for those with measurable significant astigmatism the Acrysof Toric IOL can provide sharper vision that a spherical IOL and may reduce dependency on corrective lenses.

It offers a fixed range of focus - providing near, midrange or distance vision – depending on patient preference.

The lens is made from the same hydrophobic acrylic lens material as the original Acrysof IOL, which has been inserted safely in over 16 million human eyes. This material provides the surgeon with a high level of rotational stability, which is important to secure accurate positioning of the lens during and post surgery.
