Refractive Lens Exchange for High Hyperopic Astigmatism Followed by LASIK
This case highlights some of the interesting complications resulting from an unrecognised low correlation between corneal and refractive values in a refractive lens exchange. A refractive lens exchange with a toric IOL was called for in this case. Although one would have expected the toric implant to correct for corneal astigmatism, subsequent excimer laser surgery (LASIK) was necessary.
