Correcting Astigmatism Using ReSTOR Toric Lenses | Highland, NY

Originally a treatment option exclusively for patients with cataracts, intraocular lenses are becoming a popular fix for a wide variety of vision problems. Seeta Eye Centers is answering this growing popularity by offering more options for IOLs. Our ophthalmologiests use AcrySof® ReSTOR® Multifocal Toric lenses to give excellent vision back to patients with astigmatism.

Astigmatism is a condition in which your corneas, rather than being perfectly spherical, are shaped more like a football. This distorts your vision, making everything look blurry. You may have astigmatism if:

  • You have blurry vision
  • Squinting makes everything look more clear
  • Your eyes frequently feel sore or strained
  • Your eyes feel tired

Patients with light to moderate astigmatism can treat the condition by getting laser corrective surgery, or by less permanent measures like contacts or glasses. But LASIK is unavailable if your astigmatism is too severe, and eyewear can place limits on your regular activities. For patients who need a new permanent solution, ReSTOR Toric lenses are an excellent option.

If you believe you have astigmatism and want to fix it with intraocular lenses, the Highland eye surgeons at Seeta Eye Centers are the people you need to contact! Call 845-454-1025  to set up your appointment today. We serve patients in Highland, Carmel, Yorktown, and throughout the Hudson Valley.
