Toric Lenses: Correct Astigmatism During Cataract Surgery

Many patients come to Arizona Eye Specialists with not only cataracts but also astigmatism (with or without nearsightedness and farsightedness). Having worn glasses or contact lenses their entire lives, they are often surprised to learn that having cataract surgery can also correct their astigmatism as well.

Toric Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are lenses that replace the cloudy lens that is removed during cataract surgery.  You may be able to break free from eyeglasses or contact lenses for distance vision in just one step, without the need for additional surgical procedures.The lens is permanently placed in the exact location in the eye to adjust for the unique shape of your cornea.

Toric lenses can reduce or completely eliminate your need for distance glasses after cataract surgery.
