Astigmatism Correction

For cataract patients with astigmatism, it is now possible to combine the benefits of a full range of vision provided by the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL with the astigmatic correction of the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL.

Introducing the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL—the next step toward true distance vision for cataract patients with astigmatism—and the latest advancement in cataract surgery technology.

What sets apart the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL from traditional IOLs   IOL: An artificial lens made of plastic, silicone, or acrylic, which is designed to be implanted in the eye to improve its focus and correct vision problems related to cataracts.   is the fact that it is a multifocal lens. In other words, it is a lens with multiple focal points designed to correct both cataracts   Cataracts: A clouding of the eye's lens that blocks passage of light to the retina, resulting in impaired vision. Often a result of normal aging, cataracts form when protein clumps cloud areas of the eye's lens. As the cataract progresses, vision worsens and often requires surgical replacement of the damaged lens with an artificial one.   and corneal astigmatism   Astigmatism: A common refractive condition caused by either an irregularity in the curvature of the cornea (corneal astigmatism) or the lens (lenticular astigmatism). People with astigmatism generally have difficulty seeing fine detail at all distances. This vision disorder is treated with corrective lenses or refractive surgery.   , providing a full range of vision—near, far, and in between—while offering enhanced image quality. The result? An even greater chance for independence from reading glasses or contacts.

The technology behind the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL offers precise vision correction designed to correct both cataracts and pre-existing corneal astigmatism in a single surgery.

The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL is yet another innovation from Alcon—the world’s leader in lenses for cataract surgery. Patients can take comfort in the history of the Alcon AcrySof® family of lenses—with more than 501 million AcrySof® IOLs implanted worldwide.
