The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes after toric intraocular lens implantation for astigmatism correction in patients undergoing cataract surgery. This prospective observational study included eyes undergoing cataract surgery at Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center between February and September 2011. The study enrolled eyes that had visually significant cataract and preexisting regular corneal astigmatism of 1.50 D or greater. Phacoemulsification was performed and all eyes received an AT TORBI 709 M toric foldable intraocular lens. At 3 months, the uncorrected distance visual acuity was 0.8 or better in 9 of 10 eyes. At 3 months postoperatively, the median reduction in refractive cylinder was statistically significant (P < 0.05). The median intraocular lens axis rotation was 3.0 degrees interquartile range (2.0-4.0 degrees). Our results showed AT TORBI 709 IOL to be an effective surgical option to correct preexisting corneal astigmatism and spectacle dependence after cataract surgery.
