Abstract Details


To report the outcome of cataract surgery with implantation of the Z-flex 690TA hydrophilic acrylic toric IOL (Medicontur, Hungary)


Department of Ophthalmology , Assaf Harofeh Medical Center


This prospective study enrolled consecutive patients who had 1.75 diopters (D) or more of preexisting corneal astigmatism. Patients had cataract extraction surgery with implantation of a Z-flex 690TA toric IOL (Medicontur, Hungary). Refractive outcomes, keratometry, residual refractive cylinder, surgically (SIA) and target (TIA) induced astigmatism, correction ratio (CR), and error of magnitude (EM) were evaluated


Nineteen eyes of 13 patients were evaluated. The mean follow-up time was 4.29 ± 2.32 month. The mean preoperative keratometric astigmatism was 3.05 ± 0.74 D. The mean postoperative deviation from the anticipated spherical equivalent was +0.23 ± 0.39 D, with 100% of eyes achieving a spherical equivalent within ±1.00 D of the target refraction. The mean deviation from the anticipated refractive cylinder was -0.46 ±0.47 D. The mean IOL misalignment was 5.67 ± 6.45 degrees. The mean CR was 1.02 ± 0.22, and the mean EM was -0.09 ± 0.55 D


The Z-flex 690TA hydrophilic acrylic toric IOL implantation was safe, effective and predictable in correcting corneal astigmatism during cataract surgery FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
