The new technology and developments in cataract surgery are exciting!
Premium lenses can minimize and even eliminate your need for glasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery. These premium lenses include astigmatism-correcting intraocular lenses and presbyopia-correcting lenses.
Astigmatism can be lenticular (in the lens) or corneal (in the cornea). If you have corneal astigmatism, a toric intraocular lens (IOL), also known as an astigmatism-correcting IOL, can be implanted during cataract surgery to correct for the astigmatism. Lenticular astigmatism is simply corrected by removing the cataract.
Presbyopia-correcting lenses make it possible to focus at both distance and near out of the same eye. This minimizes the need for bifocals, progressive lenses, and/or reading glasses after cataract surgery.
