Astigmatism Correcting Toric Intraocular Lens Implants (IOL) at Stahl Vision in Dayton Ohio

Toric Intraocular Lens Implants (IOL) are a type of Lens Implant that can correct astigmatism. Astigmatism is an optical aberration that is caused by the cornea being shaped more like a football, than spherical like a baseball.

For Cataract patients who have astigmatism, and who do not wish to wear eyeglasses to see clearly at a distance, choosing a Toric Lens Implant can help them be independent of glasses for tasks such as driving, that require clear distance vision. Toric Lens Implants do not correct Presbyopia, and thus even with Toric Lens Implants to correct astigmatism after Cataract Surgery, most patients still require reading glasses or bifocals to be able to comfortably perform near vision tasks such as reading and intermediate vision tasks such as computer work. If you have a considerable amount of astigmatism, Drs. Stahl & Knowles and the staff will discuss Toric Lens Implants with you, as they may be a good option for correcting your astigmatism and providing you with the best possible vision without needing eyeglasses to see at distance after your Cataract Surgery.

About the Toric Implant Lens
Toric implant lens picture Dayton OhioSome patients have a lot of astigmatism, its something they have had their whole life. This astigmatism may have made it difficult to wear contact lenses, and difficult to correct fully with glasses. Astigmatism is where the shape of the eye is out of round, more shaped like the American football. Unless astigmatism is corrected, it makes it difficult to see at distance and near! Fortunately, now we can correct your astigmatism with a Toric Lens, or astigmatism correcting implant lens. The result is less dependence on glasses. Unless you choose a Toric Crystalens (called a Trulign Lens), you will still need reading glasses with a toric implant lens. You will however be able to wear the inexpensive “readers” that are readily available once your astigmatism is corrected. Strengths: sharper distance vision, can use inexpensive readers. Weaknesses: unless using a Toric Crystalens (Trulign), you will need readers for up close.
