Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate visual function after implantation of Tecnis Toric intraocular lenses (IOLs) three months after cataract surgery.

Setting:

Clinic of Ophthalmology, Pomeranian Medical University, Szczecin, Poland

Methods:

Tecnis Toric IOLs were implanted during cataract surgery in 16 eyes of 12 patients (8 women, 4 men, mean age 63.83 + 11.52 years) with mean corneal astigmatism equal 3.00 + 1.05 D. Three months after surgery uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), best corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) (logMAR), corneal astigmatism (Zeiss IOL Master), manifest refraction, postoperative complications and patients’ satisfaction were evaluated. The cylinder axis of the toric IOL was determined by dilated pupil slit lamp examination.

Results:

The mean UDVA and CDVA equaled 0.08 and 0.03 respectively. Mean postoperative corneal astigmatism was 3.31 + 1.09 D. The IOLs remained very stabile (mean rotation angle 3.33 degrees after 3 months) yet two eyes in the first postoperative day required lens rotation. Patient’s satisfaction was very high and equaled 9.80 + 0.41 (0 – 10). In one myopic eye despite laser treatment of the peripheral retinal hole retinal detachment appeared 2 months after surgery, treated successfully with pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil injection.

Conclusions:

Cataract surgery with implantation of Tecnis Toric IOLs provided very good visual outcome and a very high level of patients’ satisfaction. Due to the rotation possibility in the first postoperative days the patients need to be scheduled carefully.
