Toric Lenses

Until recently, eyeglasses and contact lenses have been the only viable options for astigmatism correction after cataract surgery. For patients dealing with astigmatism, toric lens technology has created the possibility of significantly reducing the need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery.

The advanced technology behind the toric lens offers a combined solution: it replaces the clouded natural lens for improved vision and also corrects for corneal astigmatism.

Due to the sophisticated design of toric lenses, they are usually not fully covered by your insurance and will often carry an additional fee.
