AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL not only corrects for cataracts but also astigmatism, delivering more precise and predictable outcomes.
Cornea: The clear, curved surface at the front of the eye through which light enters the eye. Along with the sclera, the cornea provides external protection for the eye.
The Toric IOL also offers high energy blue light protection, Blue Light: Blue light has a wavelength of about 475 nanometers (nm) on the visible light spectrum. Some laboratory research suggests that high-energy blue light may lead to retinal damage and play a role in the onset of age-related macular degeneration. which shields your eyes not only from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of sunlight but also from artificial lighting such as fluorescent light bulbs—both of which have been linked as possible contributors to cataracts.
