Astigmatism Correction

Pre-existing astigmatism may be corrected at the time of cataract surgery to improve uncorrected vision, thereby reducing the need for glasses. Astigmatism results ftom alteration in the shape of the cornea or lens, causing distortion when viewing objects. Corneal astigmatism may be corrected at the time of cataract surgery by placing incisions in the cornea, more commonly referred to as limbal relaxing incisions (LRI). For larger amounts of astigmatism, a toric intraocular lens (IOL) may be placed during the time of cataract surgery. Sometimes, residual astigmatism may be corrected with laser vision correction months or years after surgery.
