[Postoperative Results after Implantation of a Toric, Aspheric Intraocular Lens].


PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional results and quality of vision after implantation of an aspheric, aberration-neutral, monofocal toric intraocular lens (IOL). PATIENTS AND METHODS 18 eyes of 13 patients were enrolled in this prospective clinical study. The T-flex aspheric, aberration-free toric IOL (Rayner Intraocular Lenses Limited, U. K.) was implanted after femtosecond or standard phacoemulsification. Follow-up examinations were performed two to four months after surgery; these included subjective refraction, ETDRS uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), wavefront analysis, measurements of stray light (C-Quant), and a questionnaire. RESULTS Median UDVA was 0.06 logMAR (range: 0.30 to - 0.18 logMAR) postoperatively. Median CDVA increased from 0.20 logMAR (range: 0.64 to 0.00 logMAR) preoperatively to - 0.07 logMAR (range: 0.16 to - 0.26 logMAR) postoperatively. The median difference between achieved versus intended spherical equivalent was - 0.08 D (range: - 1.25 to + 0.65 D). Median subjective cylinder improved from - 2.00 D (range: - 6.50 to - 0.25 D) preoperatively to - 0.50 D (range: - 1.25 to 0.00 D) postoperatively. The median spherical aberrations (6 mm pupil size) were - 0.38 µm (range: - 0.69 to - 0.10 µm) postoperatively. Measurements of stray light (C-Quant) revealed a median value of 1.28 log(s) (range: 0.92 to 1.61 log[s]). CONCLUSION The T-flex aspheric toric IOL provided beneficial and predictable functional results after surgery. The implantation of the T-flex is an effective method to correct a large range of corneal astigmatism.
