Almost all of us will develop cataracts as we age, because the eyes’ lenses become more opaque as we get older. Luckily, cataracts have become a “common” problem to rectify. In an outpatient procedure, we can replace your eye’s lens with an artificial lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL).
Today’s advances in medical technology allow us to correct both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time. TRULIGN Toric is an intraocular lens (IOL) that replaces the eye’s natural lens after cataracts have been removed. Unlike a standard toric IOL, it is designed to both correct your cataracts and give you back a broader range of vision. In many cases, TRULIGN Toric IOL is designed to reduce your dependence on glasses after cataract surgery.
In the this video, Dr. Pepose discusses positive results with the Toric IOL.
