As patient expectations continue to rise, refractive cataract surgery is becoming the norm for many cataract surgeons around the world. As such, the management of astigmatism is crucial in delivering optimal outcomes to patients. An increasingly popular way to manage astigmatism is with the use of a toric (astigmatism correcting) intraocular lens (IOL).
Solomon and Ladas compared outcomes using intraoperative aberrometry and intraoperative markerless guidance for toric IOL placement. This was a consecutive contralateral eye study, where the first eye was randomly assigned to aberrometry or markerless guidance, and the fellow eye received the other modality.
