Cataract and Cornea Astigmatism Correction
Referred to as “the emerging standard” and a "triumphant moment in cataract surgery," the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL corrects for cataracts with pre-existing astigmatism simultaneously by delivering more precise, predictable outcomes and quality distance vision—without the need for glasses following surgery.
The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL may also eliminate, in many cases, the need for limbal relaxing incisions, a technique in which incisions are made at the edge of the cornea to cause it to heal in a more spherical shape. Cornea: The clear, curved surface at the front of the eye through which light enters the eye. Along with the sclera, the cornea provides external protection for the eye.
The latest in a long line of IOL innovations from Alcon, the new AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL takes the most trusted platform for precise astigmatism correction and adds the enhanced image quality of an aspheric lens.
