Abstract Details


to describes clinical results of monofocal toric IOL implantation in cataractous eyes with keratoconus


Ein-Tal Eye Center, Tel Aviv, Israel


Patients with clinically significant cataract, keartoconus pattern, stable astigmatism and no other ocular disease were implanted with toric IOLs. Pre- and post-operative evaluation included refraction,biometry corneal topography and tomography.


Twenty-four eyes of 17 patients, mean age 60.5 years, were implanted with a variety of toric lenses (5 models of 3 companies). Uncorrected visual acuity improved from 1.26 (LogMAR) to 0.21 and 83.3% achieved 6/12 vision or better. Refractive astigmatism was improved from a mean preoperative of 3.13 diopters to 0.93 diopter postoperatively. Corneal astigmatism remained unchanged.


Toric IOLs may significantly reduce residual astigmatism and improve uncorrected visual acuity in selected keratoconus patients
