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.

"My experience with Dr. Murphy was very pleasant and professional. She took time to explain the problems and remedies. I had cataracts in both eyes. The lenses were replaced with multi-focal ones. I am extremely happy with the outcome. The staff was courteous, helpful and professional." James H.

"I was always so afraid to have anything done to my eyes, but Dr. Murphy's calm and full explanations took away this fear." Joan K.

"It is so nice to have a doctor responsive to my needs.  Dr. Murphy did both my cataracts and the multifocal lens enables me to read the smallest print.  I highly recommend Dr. Murphy and her staff." Bill S.
