Another option if you have cataracts and astigmatism
If you have astigmatism and cataracts, Dr. Justo may recommend another advanced premium lens called the AcrySof® Toric lens. It’s the first aspheric IOL that treats pre-existing astigmatism at the same time it corrects cataracts, so you don’t have to undergo two separate procedures. You will also enjoy improved quality distance vision.
Life-changing results in minutes
Whichever IOL you choose, rest assured cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective procedures performed today. Dr. Emilio Justo simply makes a tiny incision in your eye, remove its natural clouded lens using a specialized ultrasonic probe, and then replaces it with a new lens. The actual surgery usually takes about 15 minutes and the results are permanent and life changing. Most patients are back to their normal activity the very next day. Dr. Justo will implant the lens in one eye, then schedule an appointment for your second eye–usually a week later.
Both the AcrySof® ReSTOR® lens and the AcrySof® Toric lens are developed by Alcon, the world’s leader in lenses for cataract surgery. The Alcon family of lenses is the most widely used brand: more than 25 million have been implanted worldwide.
We’re proud to offer AcrySof® lenses as part of our ongoing commitment to patients who want the latest advances, the best vision, and the highest quality of life.
