Toric Lens Implants for Astigmatism

Toric Lens Implants are monofocal lens implants for astigmatism correction. Astigmatism is when the cornea (front of the eye) is shaped more like a football than a sphere. The goal of this Toric lens implant is to create focused vision at a predetermined location, either distance or near targets. Most patients opt for sharp distance vision. Reading glasses are expected to be used after implantation of this type of lens. This type of lens for astigmatism correction is not intended to provide distance and near vision simultaneously.
