We can correct astigmatism as part of the cataract surgical procedure.
As long as the surgeon performs the patients preoperative planning and assessment properly, we can choose a toric monofocal or multifocal lens to address astigmatism and enable the patient to see in the distance, near and middle-ranges, without glasses.
Knowing all your options beforehand, even if you discard them and decide to go for a standard monofocal non-toric lens avoids regret afterwards. One of the worst things is for a patient say, “Oh, I wish I had known about this other option before my surgery. What can you do to fix it?”
I invite you to book a consultation to determine your suitability for refractive cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. It’s the only way to determine your suitability for these procedures and to have an in-depth discussion regarding the risks and benefits of each of them. I look forward to seeing you there and taking you through the journey to achieving your desired postoperative outcome.
