If you have cataracts as well as an astigmatism, new premium lens implants options are available to help minimize or even eliminate your dependence on eye glasses after cataract surgery.
Toledo LASIK & Cataract is pleased to offer the advanced AcrySof Toric® IOLs for astigmatism correction after cataract surgery. The recent advancements in intraocular lens (IOL) technology have now made it possible to provide an effective solution for patients that have astigmatism. Until recently, patients that were IOL candidates and had astigmatism, had no option that woud correct the astigmatism aspect of their visual condition during cataract surgery. Surgeons would typically perform refractive surgery or LASIK after the insertion of an IOL to correct the complete visual picture. With advancements in the optics of IOLs the manufacturers have now been able to accommodate for astigmatism.
Many patients suffer from this common eye condition known as astigmatism. Often this astigmatism can lead to blurred or impaired vision if it becomes moderate or severe. The cause of the blurred and impaired vision is the result of the eye's cornea or lens having an irregular shape. A normal eye's cornea and lens have a circular shape whereas an eye with astigmatism has a longer more oval shape.
The AcrySof Toric® corrects for both conditions, cataracts and astigmatism. The Acrysof Toric® IOL is a foldable, single piece lens that is implanted during cataract surgery to replace the clouded lens. The unique design of the AcrySof Toric® IOL makes it possible to reduce or eliminate corneal astigmatism and significantly improve uncorrected distance vision.
Clinical Study Data for the Acrysof IQ Toric® IOL:
- 94% of patients achieved uncorrected distance of 20/40 or better
- Improved contrast sensitivity in low-light situations
- significant reduction in both spherical and total high order abberations
- Improved functional vision in challenging environments such as night driving, glare and fog
