An answer for astigmatism.

At the time of cataract surgery, the surgeon typically implants a monofocal (single focus) intraocular lens (IOL). Patients with astigmatism, however, still experience blurred vision because a standard IOL cannot correct corneal astigmatism. To achieve quality distance vision, eyeglasses, contact lenses or further surgery is needed. The AcrySof Toric IOL provides significantly improved distance vision and may reduce the need for corrective lenses for distance vision.
