Toric Lens

The new Alcon Toric lens has the ability to correct astigmatism. Those patients with astigmatism have a much higher chance of having good uncorrected vision, that is without glasses, at distance or near when their astigmatism is corrected with the toric lens. Astigmatism is a condition where the cornea is not completely round like a basketball but somewhat like a football lying on its side. One axis has a different power than the other. The toric lens is very good at accurately correcting this. The drawback of the toric lens is that it is not available as a multifocal lens or accommodating lens so while this lens will give you much better vision without glasses, you will likely need reading glasses. The toric lens, offered at Hirshfield Eye Associates in Queens, is often a good option for patients with astigmatism who also have cataract surgery.
