Today's advances in medical technology allow eye surgeons to correct both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time. In many cases, this may reduce the need for eyeglasses after a successful surgery.
You've got a lot to do and see. That's why your doctor may recommend that you have cataract surgery using an innovative lens from Bausch + Lomb that also corrects your astigmatism.
Before you learn more about this exceptional lens, let’s take a closer look at how cataracts and astigmatism are affecting your vision.
Over time, the natural lenses in our eyes can become cloudy. When cloudiness is coupled with your astigmatism, the world can look blurry and out of focus. This is what happens when cataracts and astigmatism get in the way of clear vision.
enVista Toric is indicated for primary implantation for visual correction of aphakia and pre-existing corneal astigmatism in adult patients in whom the cataractous lens has been removed. Safety and effectiveness has not been substantiated in patients with preexisting ocular conditions and intraoperative complications. Patients with preoperative problems such as corneal endothelial disease, abnormal cornea macular degeneration, retinal degeneration, glaucoma, and chronic drug miosis may not achieve the visual acuity of patients without such problems. As with any surgical procedure, there is risk involved. Potential complications accompanying cataract or implant surgery may include, but are not limited to the following: corneal endothelial damage, infection (endophthalmitis), retinal detachment, vitritis, cystoid macular edema, corneal edema, pupillary block, cyclitic membrane, iris prolapse, hypopyon, transient or persistent glaucoma, and secondary surgical intervention.
The enVista Toric IOL is not approved for use in the US. It is not FDA approved. The enVista Toric IOL has CE Marking.
