Cataract/Anterior Segment, IOLs and Implantation, Refractive Mgmt/Intervention
In this surgical video, Drs. Shu Feng and colleagues demonstrate rotation of a toric IOL. The 66-year-old patient had previously undergone uncomplicated cataract surgery, where the IOL was placed at 151 degrees based on preoperative calculations. At the 1-week follow up, however, the IOL was found to be aligned at 20 degrees. To rectify this, Dr. Feng creates 2 paracentesis incisions: one is used to infuse the anterior chamber while the other is used to manipulate the IOL. She offers several surgical tips, including avoiding the use of viscoelastic, which can influence the final IOL position.
