Cartridge insertion technique for toric IOL associated with greater wound size

A cartridge insertion technique was associated with greater final incision size and changes in incision size than a wound-assisted technique in the implantation of a toric IOL, according to a study.The prospective study included 144 eyes of 144 patients who underwent coaxial phacoemulsification with implantation of an AcrySof IQ toric IOL (Alcon) through a 2.2-mm clear corneal incision.
