Acrysof® IQ Toric IOL

Say “goodbye” to both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time. Say “hello” to a clear tomorrow! 

Traditionally patients receive a monofocal IOL that generally provides good distance vision without glasses or contacts. However, many patients that also have astigmatism will still experience blurry distance vision because standard IOLs do not correct astigmatism. Corrective eyewear or additional surgery is needed to reduce blurring and distortion caused by astigmatism.

Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is shaped like a football (more curved in one direction than the other) which causes light to focus in more than one point on the retina and thus results in blurry, distorted vision.

Today, patients with astigmatism who want freedom from glasses for distance vision after cataract surgery can choose to have the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL.

The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL not only clears vision when the cataract is removed, it can reduce or eliminate the blurring and distortion caused by astigmatism. The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL has a unique “aspheric” surface that has proved to eliminate much of the night vision distortions and loss of contracts that can be experienced with standard IOLs.

Why we offer our patients the AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL:

  • In clinical trials, 94% of patients implanted achieved uncorrected distance visual acuity of 20/40 or better.
  • The AcrySof® IQ IOL provides improved functional vision in challenging, low-visibility environments.
  • The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL is made of the same highly biocompatible material as Alcon’s market-leading AcrySof family of intraocular lenses, which have been implanted in more than 21 million human eyes since 1991.
