Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the postoperative outcomes after implantation of a hydrophilic toric intraocular lens (tIOL) in astigmatic patients undergoing clear lens exchange or cataract surgery.

Setting:

Univ. of Heidelberg, Dept. of Ophthalmology, Heidelberg, Germany

Methods:

In this ongoing monocentric study, clinical outcomes following implantation of the hydrophilic Precizon Toric IOL (Ophtec) were analysed. For intraoperative axis alignment the Verion Image Guided System was used. Intended versus achieved refraction, IOL position, visual acuity outcomes and power vector analyses were evaluated 3 months postoperatively.

Results:

Twenty-two eyes of 14 cataract patients received a Precizon Toric IOL with a cylindrical power between 1.0 and 7.5 D. The median postoperative IOL rotation at slit lamp was 3° with a range from 0° to 15°. Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) increased from median 0.5 logMAR preoperatively to median 0.04 logMAR at 3 months postoperatively. Corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) from 0.16 to -0.06 logMAR. Median preoperative subjective cylinder was 1.0 D and 3 months postoperatively 0.38 D.

Conclusions:

Preoperative diagnostics, IOL selection and correct intraoperative positioning of tIOLs are essential for good outcomes and postoperative spectacle independence. Visual acuities and rotational stability of the Precizon Toric IOL showed very good results and the subjective postoperative astigmatism could be reduced.
