Cataract - What is a toric intraocular lens for correction of astigmatism?

Toric IOL's are designed to reduce the blurring that results from astigmatism.  Doctor Murphy will measure your eye for astigmatism during your examination.  If you have astigmatism, a toric IOL will usually be recommended to improve your vision without glasses.

The AcrySof® Toric IOL is made of a flexible acrylic material, which has excellent optical quality.
