Toric Lens

Toric Lens Implants

Many patients have an asymmetry in their cornea known as astigmatism. This astigmatism causes blurry vision, and it is usually treated with either glasses or contact lenses. Below you will find a simulation of the improvements seen with cataract surgery and astigmatism correction. Keep in mind that these images are only illustrative and your results may vary.

The toric lens implant is an advanced technology lens implant that allows Dr. Pathak to correct your astigmatism during your cataract surgery. Most patients who benefit from this technology are able to perform activities such as driving and watching television with a reduced dependence on glasses.
