More recently, two new toric IOLs have become available: the Tecnis toric from Abbott Medical Optics and the Trulign toric from Bausch Lomb, the latter created on the Crystalens platform. Koch, professor of ophthalmology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, was involved in the clinical trials of the Tecnis toric and has worked with the Tecnis lens for about three years. “There are many similarities between the Acry Sof and Tecnis torics; they’re both on a single-piece, hydrophobic platform and they’re both terrific lenses.
Not everyone achieves this level of near vision with the lens so people shouldn't expect to necessarily get quite as good a result, and should be prepared for the possibility for needing reading glasses at near.
I might have quickly adapted if I'd taken the time, but I decided I didn't want to risk it, so I had the 2nd eye operated on a few hours later.

By 1 week postop my uncorrected vision at distance was between 20/15 and 20/20.
At near my vision was already about 20/25 (but fluctuating a bit it had seemed better earlier that day).
