Rotational Stability of a Single-Piece Toric Acrylic Intraocular Lens: A Pilot Study – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the visual performance and rotational stability of the Tecnis Toric 1-piece intraocular lens (IOL) during the first 3 postoperative months.Design: Prospective, single-center study.Methods: In this study, patients with age-related cataract and corneal astigmatism of 1.0 to 3.0 diopters measured with the IOLMaster 500 (Carl Zeiss Meditec AG) were included. Before surgery, rotating Scheimpflug scans (Pentacam HR; Oculus) were performed and the cornea was marked in the sitting position at the slit lamp. Patients received a single-piece toric hydrophobic acrylic IOL (Tecnis Toric; AMO). Immediately and 3 months after surgery, retroillumination photographs were obtained to assess the rotational stability (Read more...)
