6 Diopters of Astigmatism Corrected By Lens Implant

Patients who have an astigmatism and are candidates for cataract surgery can request a Toric Lens Implant to help improve their vision. A Toric IOL can treat both the cataract and astigmatism in one surgical outpatient procedure.

Previously, surgeons tried to change the shape of the cornea through an incision during cataract surgery. Now with the creation of the Toric IOL, vision can be improved or repaired without the need for more surgery. The Toric IOL helps to refocus vision, and is designed with the same technology as contact lenses.

Here, Dr. Bajenova completes a postoperative visit with her patient before she returns to Alaska.  She had six diopters of astigmatism before surgery.
