PURPOSE To develop a minimum set of analyses and a format for presentation of outcomes of astigmatism correction by laser systems that reshape the cornea. METHODS An Astigmatism Project group was created under the auspices of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z80.11 Working Group on Laser Systems for Corneal Reshaping. The Astigmatism Project Group was made up of experts in astigmatism analyses from academia, government, and industry. An extensive literature review was… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Correction of low levels of astigmatism

Standardized analyses of correction of astigmatism with the visian toric phakic implantable collamer lens.

The data presented demonstrate that the methodology developed by the ANSI Standard Subcommittee on Astigmatism Analysis, with some minor additions, accurately characterizes the efficacy of toric phakic IOLs in treating astigmatism.

Accuracy of corneal astigmatism correction with two Barrett Toric calculation methods.

The clinical effect of Barrett Toric Calculator has a much more accurate tendency than that of new online AcrySof Toric calculator, but is not evident in cases with normal axial length and normal anterior posterior ratio.

AstigMATIC: an automatic tool for standard astigmatism vector analysis

AstigMATIC software enables the user to easily and efficiently analyze vectorialAstigmatism outcomes using the standardized Alpins Method for post-surgical astigmatism.

Refractive Outcomes After LASIK for the Treatment of Mixed Astigmatism with the Allegretto WaveLight EX500

Treatment of mixed astigmatism using the Allegretto WaveLight® EX500 laser exceeded the industry standards of safety, efficacy, stability, and accuracy.

Visian toric implantable collamer lens for correction of compound myopic astigmatism.

Implantation of the STAAR TICL was an effective, predictable, and safe method for correction of high myopia and myopic astigmatism as shown in this retrospective observational series.

The Effect of Anterior Corneal Astigmatism Orientation on Toric Intraocular Lens Outcomes

It is found that the absolute dioptric overcorrection among WTR patients did not differ significantly with magnitude of corneal astigmatism, but the correction ratio was lower among those with higher baseline cylindrical errors, and the reduction in correction ratio in the ATR cohort was lower than that of the WTR cohort.

Vector Analysis of 1-Year Astigmatic Outcomes From a Randomized Fellow Eye Comparison of Photorefractive Keratectomy Using 2 Excimer Laser Platforms

WFG-PRK with the VISX CustomVue Star S4 IR and WFO-PRk with the Alcon WaveLight Allegretto Eye-Q 400-Hz excimer laser platform produce similar astigmatic results in myopic patients; however, the WFG mode may produce slightly more predictable astigmatic corrections.

Calculation of the change in corneal astigmatism following cataract extraction.

Analysis of the surgically induced change in astigmatism using the calculations described in this paper will allow the surgeon to evaluate his own techniques and to maximize his potential for obtaining consistently good postoperative astigmatic results without the need for suture removal.
