One Great Lens; Two Great Benefits: Why Trulign is the Premium Choice to Cure Cataracts and AstigmatismJune 9th, 2014
Have glare symptoms from oncoming headlights or difficulty seeing at night kept you home and from living life to its fullest? If so, then you may be experiencing signs and symptoms of cataracts—a common condition affecting the vision of people aged 65 or older. Cataracts are usually associated with physical changes of aging and generally do not cause pain or harm, but they can cause inconvenience because of their impact on vision. Cataracts form when protein builds up on the lens of the eye similar to plaque build up on your teeth. In a healthy eye, light passes through the transparent lens to the retina. When protein builds up, it clouds the lens and prevents light from passing clearly through it causing changes in eyesight to occur such as decreased or altered perception of color; sensitivity to light; or other symptoms mentioned above. Cataracts are often accompanied with another painless condition called astigmatism, which is caused when the shape of the cornea is irregular, resulting in blurry vision. For example, astigmatism can cause the letter “R“ to look like a “B”, which can cause difficulty reading near or far away.
How Trulign™ Works to Bring Back Clear Eyesight
The most effective treatment for cataracts is eye surgery, which, according to the National Institutes of Health, is one of the safest and most effective types of outpatient procedures. Traditional cataract surgery requires removing the old clouded lens with a tiny incision in the eye and replacing it with an intraocular lens (IOL). Unfortunately, traditional IOLs did not treat astigmatism, making eyeglasses necessary to correct for blurry vision even after the procedure.
Today’s new medical technology allows doctors to correct both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time in one simple procedure. The Trulign Toric from Bausch + Lomb is the first FDA-approved premium IOL that also improves near, intermediate, and distance vision.
Trulign replaces the eye’s natural lens after cataracts have been removed and will also give you back a broader range of vision.
After surgery, you should be able to see near, far and everything in between. Correcting your cataracts and astigmatism at the same time will reduce your need for eyeglasses.
Benefits of Trulign Toric IOL:
- Corrects more than just your cataracts
- Offers you a broader range of vision than a standard monofocal lens
- Can reduce the need to wear glasses for day-to-day activities
- Is built to last, having been designed and tested to be a permanent solution for your vision needs – all in just a 15 to 20 minute outpatient procedure!
Patients rarely feel any pain during surgery and can return to normal activities within several days.
