AcrySof Toric IOLs are used as a replacement lens in cataract surgery for patients with astigmatism. In addition to replacing the cloudy lens affected by cataracts, AcrySof Toric IOLs correct astigmatism as well as nearsightedness or farsightedness.
This lens also features an advanced aspheric design that improves image quality and increases contrast sensitivity. The AcrySof Toric IOLs are a light yellow color that helps filter out blue light without affecting the color or quality of patients’ vision.
AcrySof Toric IOLs offer many advantages to patients with astigmatism. Most patients report a high level of satisfaction with AcrySof Toric IOLs, as toric lenses are the only lenses to effectively treat astigmatism in cataract patients. When undergoing laser cataract surgery, Dr. Hirschfeld and his team will analyze each patient’s individual clinical situation to determine whether the AcrySof Toric IOL is the best option available for treating astigmatism.
