Can cataract surgery correct astigmatism? If you have cataracts and astigmatism, there\u2019s good news! Modern cataract surgery can help fix both of these refractive errors. Let\u2019s find out how cataract surgery can make your vision better and even reduce the need for glasses. Premium option: Toric Intraocular Lens (IOL) During cataract surgery, there\u2019s a helpful way to fix astigmatism. It includes swapping the cloudy natural lens with a special kind of premium intraocular lens (IOL) called a toric IOL. These intraocular lenses are like toric contact lenses for treating astigmatism and different levels of nearsightedness or farsightedness in the parts of the eye affected by astigmatism. The advantage of toric lenses If you\u2019re considering cataract surgery to address astigmatism, a toric intraocular lens could be your ticket to reduced reliance on eyeglasses post-surgery. Unlike toric contact lenses that move on the eye\u2019s surface with every blink, the toric IOLs work because of their secured position inside the eye, offering a more stable correction of astigmatism. Cataract surgery is not just about restoring clarity; it\u2019s also an opportunity to address astigmatism and potentially reduce your reliance on glasses or contact lenses.
