Toric implants for astigmatism

Patients contemplating cataract surgery will have the choice of correcting their astigmatism with a newer implant developed by Alcon. The idea of the implant is to correct their astigmatism at the time of their surgery thus getting a "two for one" benefit. If you have astigmatism, ask your surgeon if this implant would be a good idea for you.
