Bausch + Lomb’s TRULIGN® Toric IOL Now Available in Full Diopter Range


Complete Power Range Consists of 10.0 to 33.0 Diopters



FOR RELEASE TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 2015


BRIDGEWATER, NJ — Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, today announces the TRULIGN® Toric intraocular lens (IOL) power range has expanded with the addition of 10.0-16.5 (in half diopter steps), providing eye care practitioners the full diopter range of the premium lens (from 10.0 to 33.0) for their cataract patients.

 

“Many of my patients with corneal astigmatism who undergo cataract surgery desire a broader range of vision for their everyday life,” said Jay Pepose, M.D., a cornea and refractive surgery specialist from St. Louis, MO. “The TRULIGN Toric IOL is available in a wide range of cylinder options, affording my patients both excellent distance and intermediate vision without glasses, so they can exercise, golf, work on a computer, drive a car and see the dashboard. The TRULIGN Toric IOL results in exceptional visual quality that my patients enjoy in all aspects of their lives. I’m pleased to have the lens available in extended powers to provide even more of my patients this novel lens technology.”


The TRULIGN Toric intraocular lens is the first and only toric IOL in the U.S. that corrects for astigmatism and has the additional capacity to deliver improved vision across a natural range of focus. When using a standard toric IOL, patients typically can only have focus for distance vision,1,2 however, with the aberration-free advanced optics featured in TRULIGN, patients are provided excellent visual acuity at intermediate and distance (UCIVA/UCDVA ≥20/40: 97.8% of eyes). Additionally, 99.2 percent of study participants who received the TRULIGN Toric IOL reported no visual disturbances on postoperative refraction following cataract surgery.3


The innovative TRULIGN Toric’s advanced aspheric optics provides excellent acuity and contrast for driving at night, minimizing halos and glare, as well as offering a uniform power, center to edge, for predictable results. Bausch + Lomb’sTRULIGN Toric also offers outstanding rotational stability3 (rotation ≤5o: 96.1 percent of eyes) and effective cylinder correction3 (residual cylinder ≤1.0 D: 95.5 percent of eyes).
