Toric IOLs are a valuable tool we can use to reduce dependence on glasses and contacts—which is becoming increasingly important to people undergoing cataract surgery. These implants have given the qualified eye surgeons a greater ability to correct astigmatic refractive errors in conjunction with cataract and lens exchange surgery. More so,  by utilising a revolutionary intraocular lens implant, Toric IOLs provide built-in astigmatism correction, greatly reducing the need for glasses after surgery. 

 The recent advancements in intraocular lens (IOL) technology have now made it possible to provide an effective solution for patients that have astigmatism. Until recently, patients that were IOL candidates and had astigmatism, had no option that woud correct the astigmatism aspect of their visual condition during cataract surgery. Furthermore, surgeons would typically perform refractive surgery or LASIK after the insertion of an IOL to correct the complete visual picture. With advancements in the optics of IOLs the manufacturers have now been able to accommodate for astigmatism.
