Abstract


Background and Objectives: To evaluate the rotational stability of AcrySof toric intraocular lenses (IOL) by considering lapse of postoperative time and influence of capsulorhexis contraction.

Materials and Methods: A prospective, masked, single center study was conducted on 19 patients who had undergone microcoaxial cataract surgery and AcrySof toric IOL implantation. Slit-lamp retroillumination photographs of anterior segments were obtained from all patients after 1 week, 1 month and 3 months postsurgery. The degree of alteration of the postoperative IOL axis alignment and the amount of anterior capsular shrinkage were analyzed using Adobe Photoshop software.

Results: The mean degree of toric IOL axis misalignment was 2.18 (±20.2) degrees at 3 months follow-up. Quadrant analysis of the capsulorhexis aperture area at 1 week and 1 month post-operative, showed counterclockwise IOL rotation when the capsule contraction was dominant in the haptic part as well as clockwise rotation when dominant in the non-haptic part (p = 0.015).

Conclusion: The direction and degree of AcrySof toric IOL rotation differed throughout the follow-up period. Since most misalignments were found on the first post-operative day, physicians should try to minimize peri-operative risk factors that influence IOL rotation. There was also a correlation between the part of anterior capsule contraction and the direction of IOL rotation.
