Abstract

The purpose of this article is to explain how astigmatism can be eliminated during cataract surgery by using toric intraocular lenses (IOLs). The toric IOL calculation is analysed as well as the various types of toric IOLs. The toric IOL implantation technique is also explained and thoroughly analysed. Moreover, the possibility of residual astigmatism after the surgery is discussed as well as the reasons for this and how to deal with it.
