Toric IOLs for Astigmatism
Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare are pleased to offer Toric IOLs for Astigmatism correction after cataract surgery. The recent advancements in Intraocular Lens (IOL) technology have now made it possible to provide an effective solution for patients who suffer from astigmatism. Until recently, patients that were IOL candidates and had astigmatism had no option built into the lens that would correct the astigmatism aspect of their visual condition. Surgeons would typically perform refractive surgery or LASIK after the insertion of an IOL to correct the complete visual picture. If patients did not have astigmatism correction after IOL implantation then contacts or glasses would be required to deal with the astigmatism. With advancements in the optics of IOLs the manufacturers have now been able to accommodate for astigmatism.
Toric IOL technology uses biocompatible materials that have been successfully used in contact lenses and proven safe for the eye. There is an additional cost for this lens implant. Maine Eye Center does strive to make the Toric lens affordable for our patients by offering payment options here in our office.
