Abstract Details


To demonstrate the usefulness of artiflex toric lens in correcting high astigmatism in pseudophakic patients


Private Practice. Policlinic Lleida, Spain


A pseudophakic 79 years-old man presented a residual refraction of 90º -6 -1.25 with corrected visual acuity of 0.7. To correct this refractive defect an artiflex toric (phakic lens) (0º-5 -1,50) was implanted on the axis of 90º . The maximun cylinder power available for this lens is -5D. An iridian rupture at 10 h o´clock in the same eye was sutured in the same act.


The refractive result was 135 ° -1 with a visual acuity of 0.7. Secondary complications were not observed


Models of phakic lenses to correct high astigmatism can be used also in pseudophakic patients. Flexible models are desirable to minimally modify the pre-existing astigmatism.
