AcrySof Toric IOLs in Chicago / Des Plaines, Illinois
All of the ophthalmologists at the Midwest Center for Sight are certified to provide AcrySof Toric intraocular lens implants (IOLs), which are designed to correct the astigmatism that may be distorting your vision. If you need cataract surgery and also have astigmatism, you may be a Chicago AcrySof Toric IOLs candidate, as these IOLs can help you correct both problems.
The result is typically improved distance vision and less dependence on glasses. However, most patients still need corrective lenses for near and intermediate tasks. The AcrySof Toric lens also filters out harmful ultraviolet and blue light.
Safe and effective
AcrySof Toric IOLs are implanted during cataract surgery in Chicago. Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective procedures performed today. Most of our patients achieve excellent results and are highly satisfied with their postsurgery vision.
Is cataract surgery painful?
Cataract surgery is generally a simple outpatient procedure with little discomfort. The surgeon will make a tiny incision in your eye, remove your eye's clouded natural lens, and replace it with the AcrySof Toric lens. The results are permanent, and the actual surgery will take only minutes. Most of our AcrySof Toric Chicago patients are back to their normal activities the very next day. Often, the cataracts procedure is performed on one eye at a time with an appointment for the second eye about a month later.
AcrySof IOLs are:
- The most widely used with more than 30 million implanted worldwide
- Unique in their ability to filter high-energy blue light
