Cataracts, Astigmatism and Presbyopia
As we age, the eye’s natural crystalline lens often stiffens and hardens, which can cloud vision and create a cataract. Since the lens is no longer as flexible or as clear, the eye can’t properly focus light, which makes it difficult to see as clearly as you once did. If you ave astigmatism, your eye is more oval-shaped than round. As a result, light enters the eye and bends more in one direction than the other, which allows only part of an object to be in focus at one time. And, with Presbyopia the eye's natural lens becomes less flexible and is unable to focus light as it once did; presbyopia makes it difficult to focus on objects or words that are close to you.
But cataracts, astigmatism and presbyopia don’t mean a permanent loss of vision or giving up activities. With today’s advances in medical technology, eye surgeons can correct cataracts, astigmatism and presbyopia at the same time.
Get the TRULIGN advantage
TRULIGN Toric lenses are designed to correct cataracts, astigmatism and presbyopia at the same time.
Standard monofocal lenses used in cataract surgery are designed to treat cataracts only, so you will probably still need glasses for most of your daily activities, especially for up-close and intermediate activities.
With the TRULIGN Toric, your cataracts, astigmatism and presbyopia will be corrected, and like many patients, you’ll experience a broader range of vision that helps gives you the ability to bring your world into clear, sharp focus. If you’re like many TRULIGN Toric patients, after surgery you’ll enjoy increased independence from your glasses.
Be sure to ask your eye doctor which treatment option is best for you.
