Abstract Details


: To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, safety and complications of the toric iris-fixated phakic intraocular lens for the correction of myopic astigmatism.


: Department of Ophthalmology, Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Central, Lisbon, Portugal


Retrospective analysis of data from patients implanted with phakic toric iris-fixated intraocular lens (Artiflex® and Artisan®) at our department from 2009 to 2012. Main parameters evaluated were uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuities, refraction, slitlamp biomicroscopy, tonometry, topography and central endothelial cell count.


The study enrolled 30 eyes of patients with ages from 26 to 47. The majority of our patients had a decline of endothelial cell count. Most of our patients had a residual astigmatism between 0,25-0,75. The most frequent pos-operatory complication was pigment precipitates on the lens; there was one case of intraocular pressure elevation


Phakic toric iris-fixated intraocular lens are an effective, predictable and safe solution for the correction myopic astigmatism
