Correcting Cataracts and Astigmatism in One Procedure

The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL is an ideal solution for patients with both cataracts and astigmatism. Astigmatism is a common condition that can result in the blurring of your vision, whether looking near or far, while cataracts develop as you age and cloud your vision.

This can affect everyday activities such as writing, using a smartphone or driving. Astigmatism usually occurs when the cornea or lens is misshapen and, if you have astigmatism, chances are you already wear glasses or contact lenses to correct the problem.


The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL is designed to replace your clouded lens while also correcting your astigmatism in one step. This can significantly improve your functional vision for activities such as night driving. 1The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL can greatly reduce, or even eliminate, your need to wear glasses for sharp distance vision, though you will likely still need glasses for reading.
 
Quality of Life: A Smart Investment

Because traditional IOLs that are not astigmatism correcting are generally covered by private health insurance or Medicare, many patients believe that choosing a basic IOL will save them money.

If you have astigmatism, you may experience blurred and distorted vision because a traditional IOL cannot correct pre-existing astigmatism.

In clinical trials, the majority of patients with preoperative astigmatism achieved freedom from glasses for distance vision when the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL was implanted in both eyes.
 
The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL can also often be a better bargain. The cost of astigmatism-correcting glasses or  contact lenses, disinfectant or cleaning materials and eye doctor appointments adds up over the years and can  eventually outweigh the cost of toric IOLs.

If your surgeon has determined that you have cataracts, ask if you are a candidate for AcrySof® IQ Toric IOLs and be  sure to weigh your options and consider the long-term benefits.
