You see objects because your eye focuses light into images. Both the clear front layer of your eye, called the cornea, and your natural crystalline lens focuses rays of light onto the back surface of the eye, called the retina. You may have nearsightedness with astigmatism if you have trouble seeing objects clearly when they are far away. Nearsightedness, which is also called myopia, is a focusing error that causes blurrier vision at distance than at near. Light from an object in the distance focuses in front of the back surface of your eye (retina) responsible for capturing images, rather than directly on the retina. Visian Toric ICL surgery can safely correct nearsightedness between –3D to –15D with between 1.0D to 4.0D of astigmatism, and can partially correct nearsightedness in eyes with greater than -15D up to -20D of myopia and between 1.0 to 4.0D of astigmatism. If your eyeglass prescription is in these ranges, the Visian Toric ICL may make your distance vision without eyeglasses or contact lens correction better. Placing the Visian Toric ICL into the eye requires surgery, and all eye surgery carries potentially serious risks. Please review this booklet and discuss the risks with your doctor.
