This may cause glaucoma and even vision loss. Ocular hypertension is in fact quite common so it’s important to have your eyes checked by your doctor. Statistically 4.5% to 9.4% of Americans who are 40 years old and older develop ocular hypertension. As one ages, the likelihood of developing it increases.

Good vision makes for a quality life. Some patients have significant cataracts and astigmatism. As long as the astigmatism classifies as the regular kind, its possible for an AcrySof Toric lens to alleviate the problem. AcrySof Toric lens developed as an artificial replacement for a natural lens. The lens located in the cornea offers a clear window that allows light to hit the back of the eye to start the vision process. If the lens clouds or becomes stiff, it does not work as well and vision blurs. With astigmatism a deviation in the curvature of the eye keeps light rays from meeting at a common point. It takes a highly qualified surgeon such as Dr. Amajad Khokhar and his team at Sugarland Eye & Laser Center in Houston to give the best outcome. An honest conversation by the doctor and patient determines if AcrySof Toric intraocular lens becomes the best option for that patient.
