SETTING Instituto de Microcirugía Ocular (IMO), Barcelona, Spain. METHODS Fifteen eyes of 11 patients with naturally occurring astigmatism (NOA) (86. 66%) or surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) (13.34%) between -3.00 and -8.00 diopters (D) who had astigmatic keratotomy were studied. The patients had a… CONTINUE READING
