AcrySof Toric lens:

Surgery to treat cataracts is an outpatirnt procedure where in eye surgeon removes the clouded natural lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. Traditionally, the surgeon implants a monofocal artificial lens, commonly called an “intraocular lens” (IOL). If you have astigmatism, however, you may still experience burred and distorted vision because a standard IOL cannot correct corneal astigmatism. To achieve bilateral spectacle independence with a standard IOL, yu may still require eyeglasses, contact lenses, of further surgery.

If bilateral spectacle independence 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 for corrective lenses.

What is the AcrySof Toric IOL?:

The AcrySof Toric lens is a foldable, single piece lens that an eyes surgeon implants during cataract surgery to replace the clouded lens. The unique design of the AcrySof Toric IOL makers it possible to reduce or eliminate corneal astigmatism and significantly improve uncorrected distance vision. The AcrySof Toric lens provides bilateral spectacle independence.

The AcrySof Toric lens is made of the same biocompatible lens material already successfully implanted in more than 30 million eyes since 1991.
