AcrySof Toric Lens
The Correction of Astigmatism & Cataracts

Now, our Flint and Saginaw, Michigan cataracts patients who also have astigmatism have another option – the AcrySof Toric Lens. Rohr Eye & Laser Center offers the AcrySof Toric lens implant, a design proven to correct for both cataracts and astigmatism simultaneously. Implanted in the eye to restore vision after cataract surgery, the AcrySof Toric lens implant is an artificial lens specifically designed to provide both spherical and astigmatic correction.

Q. What is the success rate of the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL with preoperative astigmatism?

A. 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. It's made of the same biocompatible lens material already successfully implanted in more than 60 million people since 1991.1

Q. Is cataract surgery safe?

A. All eye surgery has risk, however cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common surgical procedures performed. The actual procedure involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL), such as the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL.

Q. How long does it take to recover from cataract surgery?

A. Recovery after cataract surgery is generally quick and usually occurs within only a few days. Most patients have improved vision soon after surgery and your sight may continue to improve for several days or weeks.

Q. Am I a candidate for the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL?

A. If you have a cataract, ask your doctor if you're a candidate for the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL.
