Abstract Details


Astigmatism correction is an important task during cataract surgery in children. Eliminating the need to wear glasses with cylindrical correction avoids the development of amblyopia. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of toric IOLs implantation in cataract surgery in children.


Moscow Region Scientific Research Clinical Institute


13 children aged from 4 to 12 years with cataract and corneal astigmatism from 2 do3,5 diopters were operated on. Visual acuity before surgery was from 0.02 to 0.3. Phacoemulsification with implantation of intraocular lenses Acrysof IQ Toric 24 to 27diopters and cylinder from SN60T4 to SN60T8 was performed.


The postoperative period was uneventful. Visual acuity from 0.4 to 0.8 was achieved on the first postoperative day, after 1 month uncorrected visual aquity ranged from 0.6 to 0.9. Improvement in visual acuity was observed in both children wearing glasses for astigmatism before surgery, and children who did not use spectacle correction. In case of bilateral cataract surgery was performed under the age of 1year and difficulties of keratometry did not allow us to use a toric intraocular lens.


The use of toric intraocular lenses in cataract surgery in children is effective and safe way to correct concomitant astigmatism.
