Toric Intraocular Lenses for Pseudophakia

Pp. 53-80 (28)

Jaime Javaloy and Jorge L. Alió

Abstract

After the development of non-astigmatic cataract surgery, a new generation of intraocular lenses, able to manage previously existing corneal astigmatism, has experienced a great expansion. Different choices for the surgeon include the possibility of correcting simultaneously presbyopia, special designs for sulcus implantations and customized dioptric powers. The keys to success when implanting these IOLs are correct power calculation and correct surgical management with pre-surgical marking of the cylindrical axis and ensuring correct alignment at the end of the procedure.

Keywords:

Astigmatism, correction, toric IOL.
