Abstract Details


To evaluate the rotational stability, visual performance and patient satisfaction after implantation of the Torica-aA IOL (HumanOptics AG, Erlangen, Germany) in patients with age-related cataract.


Konventhospital der Barmherzigen Brüder, Linz, Austria


This prospective study enrolled 40 eyes of 26 patients (mean age: 72.8 ± 7.9 years) with pre-existing corneal astigmatism of 1.0 to 3.0 diopters (D). The rotational stability of the toric IOL was evaluated using retroillumination photographs taken within 24 hours after surgery and 1 week and 6 months postoperatively. Other main study outcomes were assessed 6 months postoperatively and included corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), subjective refraction, keratometry and patient satisfaction. The efficacy of the astigmatism correction was evaluated by vector analysis (J0, J45).


Six months postoperatively, mean absolute IOL rotation was 1.99 ± 1.88° (range 0.10 to 7.40°). IOL rotation was less than 3° and ≤ 5° in 85% and 94% of the eyes, respectively. Mean residual refractive cylinder was -0.57 ± 0.34 D. All eyes were within ± 0.60 D for J0 and J45. Mean CDVA improved significantly from 0.16 ± 0.16 LogMAR preoperatively to -0.02 ± 0.09 LogMAR postoperatively (p=0.0001). All eyes achieved 20/32 or better including 80% of eyes achieved 20/20 or better. All patients stated that they would choose the same lens model again. No postoperative complications were reported.


Implantation of the Torica-aA IOL was safe and effective in reducing low to moderate pre-existing corneal astigmatism and provided good rotational stability and refractive outcomes which led to high levels of patient satisfaction.
