Abstract Details


To evaluate the refractive outcomes and rotational stability of the Acrysof® IQ Toric IOL for the correction of preexisting corneal astigmatism in patients undergoing routine cataract surgery.


Patients with cataract and corneal astigmatism > 1,0 diopters (D) were included in this prospective study.


Pentacam HR (Oculus) was performed in all patients preoperatively and the cornea was marked in the sitting position with a pendulum marker. The minimun follow-up was 1 month. Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), residual refractive sphere, residual keratometric and refractive cylinders, and toric IOL axis were measured before and 1 day, 1 week, and 1 month after surgery. IOL misalignment and rotational stability were assessed by retroillumination photographs.


Fourteen eyes of 8 patients were included in this study. The mean pre-operative corneal astigmatism was 3,44D. The mean cylinder reduction was approximately 70% with a mean post-operative refractive cylinder of 1,1D. The mean post- operative UDVA was 0,68. Mean IOL rotation was 3,5 degrees with all eyes with an IOL rotation inferior to 10 degrees. No complications were observed.


Implantation of the Acrysof® IQ Toric is a safe and effective method to correct corneal astigmatism in patients undergoing routine cataract surgery. The IOL showed a good rotational stability.
