Blaylock JF, Hall BJ. Clinical Outcomes of Monofocal Toric IOLs Using Digital Tracking and Intraoperative Aberrometry. Clinical Ophthalmology. 2021;Volume 15:3593-3600.

PURPOSE

To evaluate clinical outcomes of a toric IOL using digital tracking (DT) and intraoperative aberrometry (IA).

METHODS

This was a retrospective, single surgeon study examining 151 eyes of 106 patients. Inclusion criteria were subjects who presented with visually significant cataracts (or as a candidate for clear lens extraction) and were implanted with a toric intraocular lens. Spherical equivalent prediction errors for IA and preoperative planning were calculated and compared. Preoperative and postoperative refractive data and monocular uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) were also collected at 3 months postoperatively.

RESULTS

Postoperative actual residual refractive astigmatism with IA was 0.50 D or less in 140 eyes (92.8%) and was 0.50 D or less in 88 eyes (58.3%) with back-calculations based on preoperative planning. The absolute spherical equivalent prediction error was 0.50 D or less in 135 eyes (89.4%) for IA compared to 123 eyes (85.4%) for preoperative planning. Postoperative monocular UDVA was 0.10 logMAR or better in 124 eyes (82.1%) and 0.00 logMAR or better in 90 eyes (59.6%). Postoperative CDVA was 0.10 logMAR or better in 147 eyes (97.4%) and 134 eyes (88.7%) were 0.00 logMAR or better.

CONCLUSION

The results demonstrate that toric implantation with DT and IA can provide excellent refractive and visual outcomes.
