Products: Tecnis Toric IOL Model ZCT

Web background



Empower your patients’ vision with proven optical quality. The TECNIS® Toric IOL delivers the sharpest vision, best low-light performance and long-term sustainability for patients with astigmatism.

Recommended IOL Insertion:

  • UNFOLDER® Platinum 1 Series Delivery System
Tecnis Toric IOL


High-quality performance is just as critical for patients with astigmatism. The TECNIS®Toric IOL not only delivers excellent spherical correction but beautifully sharp vision as well.

Excellent astigmatism correction meets superior image contrast:

  • 94% of eyes achieved ≤ 0.50 diopters of residual refractive cylinder*1
  • 88% of patients achieved monocular corrected distance visual acuity of 20/20 or better2
  • Higher image contrast with TECNIS® Toric IOLs3

MTF at 50 c/mm White, 5 mm Pupil

MTF at 50 c/mm White, 3 mm Pupil

Up to 16% improved image contrast.

Modular Transfer Function (MTF) is a measure of the amount of contrast transferred by the optics in a visual system. The higher the MTF value, the more contrast transferred to the image, resulting in higher image contrast. AcrySof is a trademark of Novartis AG Corp.


TECNIS® Toric IOLs are designed for real-world conditions, empowering you to deliver high-confidence driving at night without distance glasses**2 — as well as the best low-light performance for patients with astigmatism.

Difficulty With Driving at Night Without Glasses at 6 Months†3

91.9% of patients (ZCT150) reported no difficulty with night driving — without glasses.


Trust your outcomes to an IOL that delivers exceptional postoperative rotational stability, stunning visual performance and high patient satisfaction.

2.74° mean axis change between baseline and 6 months.2

Unlike another leading IOL, TECNIS® IOL material is not associated with glistenings,4-8
which can inhibit your patients’ vision. Glistenings cause light scatter, which can result in a reduction in image contrast.5-9


*In a separate (IDE) study, 72.3% of ZCT150 eyes achieved ≤ 0.50 diopters of residual refractive cylinder. By comparison, 69.3% AcrySof® IQ Toric SA60T3 eyes achieved ≤ 0.50 D of residual refractive cylinder.

**As control eyes had ≤1.5 D of preoperative Kcyl, results for all toric eyes pooled are not to be compared to control values.

†Difficulty with certain activities without glasses at 6 months, bilateral subjects in the randomized control arm and open label arm safety population.
