The lens is also available in a toric version, addressing both cataracts and astigmatism in a single procedure.

d Kent L. Wellish, M.D., Cataract and Refractive Surgeon and Nevada’s First Laser Vision Surgeon, Las Vegas, NV. “Cataract surgery is all about meeting each patient’s unique needs, considering various factors, including their lifestyle, which increasingly involves extensive screen time.
