Results of Toric Intraocular Lenses for Post-Penetrating Keratoplasty Astigmatism – Corrected Proof

Purpose: Evaluate the usefulness of toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation during cataract surgery in patients after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP).Design: Retrospective case review.Participants: A total of 21 eyes of 16 patients with prior PKP and moderate to high regular astigmatism after full suture removal underwent phacoemulsification and implantation of a single-piece acrylic toric IOL (SN6AT series; Alcon, Fort Worth, TX).Methods: Patients underwent comprehensive examinations at standard intervals, including visual acuity, manifest refraction, and corneal topography.Main Outcome Measures: Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) expressed as the logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMAR) and manifest (Read more...)
