Optoelectronic test bench shows effect of toric IOL rotation on image quality

Ljubljana, SLOVENIA – Toric IOLs are “forgiving” devices, as small amounts of rotation are well tolerated and do not induce significant image alteration, according to a study conducted with the aid of a device simulating the optical characteristics of the human eye. “The literature suggests that rotation over 30° induces loss of the whole cylindrical correction. In our study, we found that the toric effect is lost at 45°. For IOL rotations within 5°, image quality does not change significantly,” Daniele Tognetto, MD, said at the winter meeting of the (Read more...)
