Abstract

Correction of astigmatism is an important part of refractive cataract surgery.Currently, methods of combined corneal astigmatism correction in cataract surgery mainly include keratotomy and Toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.Whether it is a scalpel or femtosecond laser keratotomy, the effects of astigmatism correction is related to the position, shape, length and depth of the incisions, configuration, and distance between incisions and optic axis.Moreover, the pattern and material of Toric IOL can affect its rotation stability and effects of astigmatism correction.This article reviewed recent progress of correcting corneal astigmatism in cataract surgery, which provided reference for ophthalmologists in clinical.

Key words:

Cataract surgery; Corneal astigmatism; Keratotomy; Toric intraocular lens
