BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the extent and the distribution of corneal astigmatism in patients awaiting cataract surgery in a mid-European tertiary clinic centre and hence to establish the demand for methods reducing corneal astigmatism. PATIENTS AND METHODS Keratometry measurements of cataract surgery candidates assigned to a university clinic between January 2013 and October 2014 were recorded and analysed retrospectively. RESULTS A total of 6900 eyes of 3450… Expand
Prevalence and Age-Related Changes of Corneal Astigmatism in Patients Undergoing Cataract Surgery in Northern China
TLDR
The magnitude, orientation, and age-related changes of corneal astigmatism of the eyes before cataract surgery may provide valuable and practical information to surgeons when selecting the appropriate surgical method and toric intraocular lens (IOLs). Expand
Corneal astigmatism in cataract surgery patients from Bosnia and Herzegovina
TLDR
This study provides useful reference data for cataract surgeons and patients from Bosnia and Herzegovina and indicates patients with higher amount of astigmatism in one eye are more likely to have significant astigmatisms in fellow eye. Expand
Clinical outcomes of Ankoris toric intraocular lens implantation using a computer-assisted marker system
TLDR
Cataract surgery with implantation of Ankoris monofocal toric IOL using the Zeiss Callisto Eye marking system is predictable and effective in reducing refractive astigmatism. Expand
Outcomes of Femtosecond Laser Arcuate Incisions in the Treatment of Low Corneal Astigmatism
TLDR
Using the femtosecond laser for arcuate incisions in combination with a novel nomogram can provide excellent anatomic and refractive outcomes in patients with lower levels of preoperative astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery. Expand
Agreement between IOLMaster® 500 and Pentacam® HR for keratometry assessment in type 2 diabetic and non-diabetic patients.
TLDR
In both groups, IOLMaster and Pentacam agree well for corneal power and moderately for astigmatism, however, axis location disagreement is frequent in eyes with flatter corneas and small amounts of astigmatisms. Expand
Impact of Thermal Pulsation Treatment on Astigmatism Management and Outcomes in Meibomian Gland Dysfunction Patients Undergoing Cataract Surgery
TLDR
Stabilization of the tear film with TPS treatment resulted in less RRA than if pre-TPS keratometric readings had been used to determine the astigmatism management method and toric IOL power and axis. Expand
Consensus on the management of astigmatism in cataract surgery
TLDR
The present paper provides several agreements and recommendations for management of astigmatism during cataract surgery, which could potentially minimize the variability in practice patterns and help ophthalmologists adopt optimal practices forCataract patients withAstigmatism and improve patient satisfaction.

Clinical outcomes after implantation of a toric intraocular lens with a transitional conic toric surface
TLDR
Preoperative diagnostics, IOL selection and correct intraoperative positioning of tIOLs are essential for good outcomes and postoperative spectacle independence following cataract or RLE surgery. Expand
Comparison of Preoperative Measurements with Intraoperative Aberrometry in Predicting Need for Correction in Eyes with Low Astigmatism Undergoing Cataract Surgery
TLDR
Using intraoperativeBiometry readings can produce lower postoperative astigmatism than using preoperative biometry readings, but caution should be used when interpreting intraoperative readings that disagree with preoperative measurements with a vector magnitude of >0.5 D. Expand
Sunalp YAG Laser Lens, A Novel Method for Marking the Axis of Astigmatism Before Cataract Surgery and Toric Lens Implantation
Purpose: Comparison of astigmatic correction and visual acuity outcomes in patients implanted with toric intraocular lenses following cataract surgery reference marked pre-operatively manually with aExpand
