Abstract

Accurate alignment of a toric intraocular lens (IOL) is a requisite to achieving the intended reduction in astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery. However, it requires a reasonably clear view of the limbal vascular anatomy, which is sometimes altered by chemosis from a subconjunctival anesthetic injection or a hemorrhage. We describe a technique that can quickly restore vascular anatomy and facilitate toric IOL alignment.
