AcrySof Toric Lens Implant
The AcrySof Toric lens is designed to reduce corneal astigmatism and improve uncorrected functional distance vision. The AcrySof Toric lens offers these advantages over traditional lens implants:
- Correction of corneal astigmatism
- Enhanced clarity and quality of uncorrected distance vision
- Filtered blue light protection
- Rich, vibrant color perception
The AcrySof Toric lens is ideal for patients who wish to be corrected for distance vision and are comfortable wearing reading glasses. Because this lens does not offer the ability to accommodate or adjust one's vision to varying distances, glasses would be required for near and intermediate tasks for people who have this implant.
The AcrySof Toric lens implant is also an excellent choice for those who drive a lot at night, as it delivers great clarity with minimal reports of glare or haloes under both bright and dim lighting conditions.
