Abstract Details


The purpose of this poster is to present clinical results of toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation for preexisting astigmatism correction and determine any postoperative rotation.


118 eyes of 109 patients underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification and were implanted with an AcrySof© Toric IOL (T2).


Uncorrected visual acuity, residual astigmatism and postoperative rotation of the IOL were estimated six months after the surgery.


Uncorrected visual acuity was ≥ 16/20 in 114 out of 118 eyes (96,61 %) and ≥ 20/20 in 98 out of 118 eyes (83,05 %). Six months after the surgery the median toric IOL axis rotation was 1.0 ± 2.5° (range 1.5°–5.0°).


The implanted one-piece hydrophobic acrylic toric IOLs have a good stability, deliver an encouraging visual outcome and therefore represent an attractive alternative for the correction of small refractive astigmatism.
