Bausch + Lomb has expanded the power range of its Trulign Toric intraocular lens (IOL), providing eye care providers more options for cataract patients.      
 
“Many of my patients with corneal astigmatism who undergo cataract surgery desire a broader range of vision for their everyday life,” stated Jay Pepose, MD, a cornea and refractive surgery specialist from St. Louis, Missouri. “…The Trulign Toric IOL results in exceptional visual quality that my patients enjoy in all aspects of their lives. I’m pleased to have the lens available in extended powers to provide even more of my patients this novel lens technology.”
 
With the new power range addition of 10 to 16.5 diopters in half diopter steps, the IOL is now available from 10 to 33 diopters.
 
The Trulign Toric IOL is indicated for primary implantation in the capsular bag of the eye for the visual correction of aphakia and postoperative refractive astigmatism secondary to removal of a cataractous lens in adult patients. It is the first and only toric IOL in the United States to correct for astigmatism.
 
While a standard toric IOL typically only provides focus for distance vision after cataract surgery, the Trulign Toric IOL provides clarity at intermediate and long distances, according to Bausch + Lomb. Almost all study participants who received the IOL reported no visual disturbances on refraction following cataract surgery.
