Abstract Details


To asses effectivity of the toric intraocular lens implantation for treatment of astigmatism in cataract surgery.


Internet calculating softwares were used to choose proper toric IOL and positioning of cylindrical axis to achieve minimal postoperative astigmatism.


The follow up group of 78 eyes (52 patients, 12 male, 40 female, average age 63±11.8 years) was examinated before surgery, 1st day post operation, 1st week and 1 month after operation. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), spherical diopters (Sph), cylindrical diopters (Cyl) and best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), before and postoperatively were evaluated. Statistical significant values were considered as p < 0.05.


Average UCVA, Sph, Cyl and BCVA before operation was: 0.22±0.19, 3.17±3.08 Ds, 2.18±1.12 D Cyl, 0.57±0.24 1st day post operation : 0.71±0.23, 0.17±0.32 Ds, 0.37±0.46 D Cyl, 0.81±0.2 1st week post operation: 0.74±0.19, 0.14±0.26 Ds, 0.43±0.44 D Cyl, 0.87±0.15 1 month post operation: 0.78±0.19, 0.12±0.25 Ds 0.39±0.42 D Cyl 0.91±0.13 Significant improvement of UCVA, BCVA and significant reduction Sph and Cyl of was confirmed statistically


Implantation of toric IOLs is an effective method for astigmatism correction in cataract surgery.
