TORIC

Have you been told that you are developing cataracts? Do you also have an astigmatism? You now have an important decision to make prior to cataract surgery! You have the opportunity to upgrade your procedure with the Toric IOL (Intraocular lens). Reduce or even eliminate your dependency on glasses after cataract surgery!

Milwaukee Eye Care is pleased to offer Toric IOLs for astigmatism correction after cataract surgery. Recent advancements in Intraocular Lens technology now make it possible to provide clear vision after cataract surgery to those with astigmatism. If you are unsure you have astigmatism, please consult your doctor at Milwaukee Eye Care at your next visit.

Until recently, patients that were IOL candidates and had astigmatism, had no option built into the lens to correct the astigmatism aspect of their visual condition. 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.

TecnisAcrysof IQToric® IOL technology uses biocompatible materials that have been successfully used in contact lenses and proven safe for the eye. There is an additional cost for this lens implant.

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. AcrySof Toric lens provides excellent distance vision, independent of eyeglasses and contact lenses.

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 aberrations
  • Improved functional vision in challenging environments such as night driving, glare and fog
