Treat cataracts and astigmatism with one procedure!
- The Acrysof® Toric lens is a foldable, single-piece lens that Dr. McCabe implants during cataract surgery to replace your clouded, natural lens.
- Its unique design makes it possible to reduce or eliminate corneal astigmatism AND significantly improve uncorrected distance vision.
- Cataract surgery remains the most frequently performed surgery in the U.S. and is one of the safest as well. So, the surgery itself remains the same -- only the lens technology has improved.
Cataracts and astigmatism defined.
A cataract is like a cloud over the eye's lens, interfering with quality of vision, making normal activities, such as driving a car, reading a newspaper or seeing people's faces, increasingly difficult.
Astigmatism is caused by an irregular curvature of he cornea or the lens, and hampers the ability to see fine detail. Astigmatism affects vision at all distances and is a separate vision problem from cataracts.
