Toric Intraocular Lenses

 Toric intraocular lenses (IOLs) are perfect for people suffering from cataracts and astigmatism. Astigmatism is when the cornea is not perfectly round like the edge of a basketball, but more oblong, like the pointy end of a football. This causes light to focus on multiple points on the retina, which results in blurred vision. A standard monofocal implant lens does not correct astigmatism.  The Toric IOL is designed to off-set the shape of the cornea, so that light focuses on the retina and vision becomes clear.  A toric lens maximizes distance vision but you should still expect to need reading glasses.  Please click on the video below for more info
