enVista toric IOL is indicated for use in patients with astigmatism after cataract removal.
Astigmatism means that your eye is more egg-shaped than round.
Cataract surgery is not completely risk-free. Complications may occur as a result of the removal of your cataract whether or not an intraocular lens is implanted.
Complications of cataract surgery range from minor, usually temporary side effects, to sight-threatening complications. Fortunately, significant sight-threatening complications are extremely rare and include, but are not limited to: infection, hemorrhage, and retinal detachment. People with existing medical conditions such as diabetes and chronic eye infections are at a higher risk of developing complications.
The risks of implantation with the enVista toric IOL include the same risks that exist for all cataract surgery with toric IOL implantation.
The long term safety and effectiveness of this lens have not been proven. The safety of the enVista toric IOL has not been substantiated in patients with preexisting conditions.
