Can astigmatism also be corrected during cataract surgery?
In cataract surgery, a premium intraocular lens can be implanted instead of a standard lens to correct astigmatism. The TORICA® has the same effect as a toric vision aid and compensates for astigmatism. The toric IOL is aligned in the interior of the eye and compensates for the curvature of the cornea. Compared to conventional toric IOLs, TORICA® is optimized to improve contrast sensitivity. Patients benefit from effective and stable correction of astigmatism.
The patient has a very good chance of being able to do without distance glasses and achieve much better vision. 100% of patients who were treated with TORICA® in a clinical study would choose implantation again. Read more.
TORICA®corrects your astigmatism and gives you clear vision without glasses. However, you will still need glasses to read. The combination of toric and multifocal principles allows freedom from glasses in the near, intermediate, and far range even with existing astigmatism.
