Abstract Details


to evaluate the longtermRotational Stability with regards to the axis of placement and and Predictability Of Foldable Toric Iol In Correction Of Astigmatism In Cataract Surgery Patients


Narayana Nethralaya superspeciality Eye Hospital , Narayana Hrudalaya Health city , Bommasandra . Bangalore, India


Patients meeting inclusion and exclusion criteria for toric IOL implantation were included in the study. Manifest refraction and best corrected visual acuity at 6 weeks post op was performed. IOL orientation was verified on the slit lamp on post-op day 1 and at 6 weeks.Toric iol calculator determined the site of incision and orientation of iol axis. Acrysof toric iol was implanted in all cases.


40 Eyes of 25 patients were evaluated. Mean age of the patients was 58.8 and the male to female ratio was 1.1:1. At final follow up of 6 weeks post op, uncorrected distance visual acuity of 6/9 or better was 92.5%(37 of 40 eyes) . Corrected distance visual acuity was 6/6 in all cases . The mean rotation of toric iol axis was 2.56 degrees and perfect axis alinghment was found in 33.3% (12 eyes). 40% of the 90 +/- 30 degrees axis alignment had perfect axis alignment compared to 32.3% with 180 +/- 30 degrees axis.


Early and longterm (6 weeks) post operative follow up show Alcon AcrySof Toric IOL has good rotational stability and is predictable and effective in correction of pre-existing corneal astigmatism in patients undergoing cataract surgery. Manual keratometry values give predictable results in toric iol calculation. Iol’s placed in the 90 +/- 30 degress axis were found more stable than the 180 +/- 30 degrees axis.
