Can my astigmatism be corrected with cataract surgery?

Can my astigmatism be corrected with cataract surgery?

Yes!  There are two options for fixing astigmatism.

[1] A special implant (toric) - corrected concurrently with cataract surgery.  70% of people could benefit and see better post surgery with an implant that fixes corneal astigmatism.

[2] LASIK post cataract removal - corrected once stable after cataract surgery (~3-6months)

Not all surgeons off this correction.  Talk to your Optometrist prior to surgeon referral.
