To evaluate the changes in astigmatism after deep sclerectomy with collagen implant.
Hospital Arrįbida, Porto Portugal
25 eyes were submitted to deep sclerectomy with collagen implant (DS) and 10 eyes were submitted to combined surgery (phacoemulsification + DP). A phacoemulsification group (15 eyes) was used as control. Changes of power and axis of astigmatism were evaluated at 6 months using the K values.
DS group: 21 eyes had not changes of power or astigmatism axis; -0.50 D astigmatism was induced in 2 eyes (axis 65ŗ and 180ŗ); astigmatism increased -0.50D at the same axis in 1 eye; astigmatism decreased -0.75D at the same axis in 1 eye. Combined group: 7 eyes had not changes of power or astigmatism axis; -0.50D at 120ŗ astigmatism had been induced in 1 eye; astigmatism decreased -0.25D and changed 10ŗ in 1 eye; astigmatism changed 20ŗ in 1 eye with the same power. Phacoemulsification group: 10 eyes had changes ? 10ŗ or -0.5D (3 eyes 0ŗ and ? -0.5D; 4 eyes 5ŗ and ? -0.5D and 3 eyes 10ŗ and ? -0.5D).
The results showed that the changes in astigmatism after DS are not significant and toric IOL could be implanted in glaucoma patients.
