Abstract Details

Purpose:

To compare surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) after bimanual 1.4 mm microincision cataract surgery (B-MICS) and coaxial 1.8 mm microincision cataract surgery (C-MICS).

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology, Norbert Barlicki Memorial Teaching Hospital No. 1, University of Lodz, Poland. Head: Prof. Wojciech Omulecki MD, PhD

Methods:

A total of 60 eyes of 60 consecutive patients were enrolled in this prospective,single-center study.The examined group consisted of 30 eyes of 30 patients who had uneventful B- MICS surgery through a 1.4mm clear corneal microincision.The control group consisted of 30 eyes of 30 patients who had uneventful C- MICS surgery through a 1.8 mm clear corneal microincision.In all patients an aspheric InciseĀ® IOL MJ14T(Bausch & Lomb) intraocular lens was implanted.All surgeries were performed by two experienced surgeons.The control examinations were performed 7,30 and 90days postoperatively.Surgically induced astigmatism was calculated using 3 methods.Uncorrected and best corrected visual acuities were evaluated

Results:

The detailed results of surgically induced astigmatism, as well as visual acuity outcomes will be presented

Conclusions:

The surgically induced astigmatism after bimanual 1.4 mm microincision cataract surgery and coaxial 1.8 mm microincision cataract surgery(C-MICS) were minimal, and visual outcomes were very good.
