Abstract Details


Assess efficacy of correction of corneal astigmatism in range 0.6 to 0.9 Dioptre using Alcon Acrysof T2 IOL


Sydney Eye Specialist Centre, Australia. Private ophthalmology clinic and day surgery


102 eyes Pre-op corneal astigmatism assessed with IOLmaster and Orbscan, 0.6 to 0.9 Dioptre cylinder corrected by implantation of T2 IOL. Refractive astigmatism assessed at 1 month or more post-op


Of 102 eyes 98 had less cyl than pre-op 95 had 0.5 Dioptre or less 89 had 0.25 or less


It is worthwhile correcting low corneal astigmatism, 0.6 to 0.9 with the Acrysof T2 IOL. The few cases where refractive cylinder was increased or not reduced reflect limitations of our ability to measure whole eye astigmatism with current instruments FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
