Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the postoperative outcome of toric intraocular lens (TIOL) implantation for cataract patients with high corneal astigmatism. Methods: This retrospective study included 24 eyes of 22 patients with high corneal astigmatism exceeded-1.50 D who underwent cataract surgery and implantation of TIOL (SN6AT6:12 eyes, SN6AT7:8 eyes, SN6AT8:3 eyes, SN6AT9:1 eye). The mean age of all cases was 68.1 years. Visual acuity, corneal astigmatism, subjective refraction, and rotation error were recorded preoperatively and 1 month postoperatively. Results: The uncorrected and correted distance visual acuities and subjective refraction were significantly (p<0.001) improved after TIOL implantation. There was no significant difference in corneal astigmatism between preoperatively and postoperatively. The mean rotation error was 2.8°. Conclusion: TIOL was effective for cataract patients with high corneal astigmatism.
