Managing astigmatism in cataract patients

Clinical challenge

Residual astigmatism is one of the key factors impacting the visual quality of patients after cataract surgery.1 If astigmatism is left untreated, patients will not be able to achieve the best potential visual acuity without glasses and partially lose contrast sensitivity.2 There are several factors influencing the correction of astigmatism during cataract surgery, such as preoperative keratometry readings, lens rotation and surgically induced astigmatism.3 Recent surveys have shown an increase of toric IOL usage due to the availability of supporting technologies in adopting a toric workflow.4

When it is the wish of the patient to see far without glasses after cataract surgery, then you might need to put in toric IOLs in more than 50% of the cases.
