Toric lens implants are an exciting technology for patients with moderate amounts of astigmatism. Reducing your astigmatism will reduce your dependence upon glasses as compared to if you had a standard lens implant. A standard lens implant can be set to make you either far sighted or near sighted but if you have astigmatism, your focus without glasses will still be blurred to some degree because of the residual astigmatism that is not corrected by the standard lens implant. You could wear glasses in order to correct the astigmatism, however if it is desirable to you to have better vision when you are not wearing your glasses, you may want to consider the toric lens implant.
