Astigmatism Correction & Toric Lens

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism is not a disease! It is the anatomical shape of your cornea and/or lens. Astigmatism is an irregular curvature to the cornea or the lens in our eye causing light rays to scatter and preventing them from meeting at a common point in the back of the eye. This often results in blurry, distorted vision at all focal points

How is astigmatism corrected during cataract surgery?

Astigmatism can be corrected at the time of cataract surgery through the use of Limbal Relaxing Incisions or with a Toric Lens.
