Use of Toric IOLs in the Correction of Astigmatism with Cataract Surgery
Toric IOLS provide a safe and effective means of correcting astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery. Little additional risk is involved.
Careful surgical planning involves precise preoperative evaluation of the ocular surface, refractive characteristics, and the use of alignment systems.
Improvements in IOL design and materials have reduced the need for postoperative enhancements due to IOL rotation.
Alignment remains an area of rapid technologic development with intraoperative guidance using microscope-integrated or “heads-up” displays becoming available.
