Abstract Details


To evaluate visual outcomes of cataract surgery with AcrySof toric intraocular lens (IOL).


Hospital de Sabadell (CSPT), Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Sabadell, Barcelona, Spain.


Observational retrospective study. Cataract patients with corneal astigmatism over 2,5 diopters (D) underwent phacoemulsification and AcrySof toric IOL implantation were assessed. Follow-up examinations were performed for 6 months including subjective refraction, uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA).


Forty eyes of 40 patients underwent AcrySof toric implantation between December 2011 and March 2014. 6 months postoperatively, UDVA was 20/40 or better in 70% of eyes and 20/25 or better in 30%. CDVA was 20/40 or better in 95% of eyes and 20/25 or better in 75%. Mean refractive cylinder decreased significantly postoperatively, from -4.51 ± 2.01 D to -0.21 ± 0.81 D. Mean spherical equivalent (SE) was within ±1.00 D of the target refraction in 38 eyes (95%).


Implantation of the AcrySof toric IOL proved to be an effective, safe, and predictable method of managing corneal astigmatism in cataract patients.
