Vector analysis of astigmatism correction after toric intraocular lens implantation
Alpins and thibos vectorial astigmatism analyses: proposal of a linear regression model between methods
TLDR
The linear regression the authors found between APVratio and %Success permits a validated mathematical inference concerning the overall success of astigmatic surgery.
Evaluation of Astigmatic Correction Using Vector Analysis after Combined Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Phacoemulsification and Intrastromal Arcuate Keratotomy
TLDR
Overall, this study has shown that FLACS and ISAK could reduce postoperative corneal astigmatism effectively and safely and the precision of the nomogram should be improved through long-term vector analysis for the results of arcuate keratotomy.
Influence of Preoperative Astigmatism Type and Magnitude on the Effectiveness of SMILE Correction.
TLDR
Astigmatism correction with SMILE is predictable for astigmatism lower than 1.50 D without the need to apply a correction, however, higher undercorrection is present in WTR astigmatisms of 1.
Vector Analysis , Rotational Stability , and Visual Outcome After Implantation of a Toric IOL
TLDR
The rotational stability and the refractive and visual outcome of the new Bi-Flex T toric IOL for correction of preexisting corneal astigmatism during routine cataract surgery over a period of 12 months was evaluated.
Influence of internal optical astigmatism on the correction of myopic astigmatism by LASIK.
TLDR
The higher indices of success in the high ORA and high LA groups suggest a lower efficacy of LASIK in treating astigmatism primarily located intraocularly, and topography and refractive value should be incorporated in the treatment of patients when a significant amount of internal opticalAstigmatism is detected preoperatively.
