Astigmatism: Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)Refraction, Ocular: Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.Corneal Topography: The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.Refractive Errors: Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.Retinoscopy: An objective determination of the refractive state of the eye (NEARSIGHTEDNESS; FARSIGHTEDNESS; ASTIGMATISM). By using a RETINOSCOPE, the amount of correction and the power of lens needed can be determined.Myopia: A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.Hyperopia: A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation. (Dorland, 27th ed)Visual Acuity: Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.Keratoplasty, Penetrating: Partial or total replacement of all layers of a central portion of the cornea.Suture Techniques: Techniques for securing together the edges of a wound, with loops of thread or similar materials (SUTURES).Anisometropia: A condition of an inequality of refractive power of the two eyes.Cornea: The transparent anterior portion of the fibrous coat of the eye consisting of five layers: stratified squamous CORNEAL EPITHELIUM; BOWMAN MEMBRANE; CORNEAL STROMA; DESCEMET MEMBRANE; and mesenchymal CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM. It serves as the first refracting medium of the eye. It is structurally continuous with the SCLERA, avascular, receiving its nourishment by permeation through spaces between the lamellae, and is innervated by the ophthalmic division of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE via the ciliary nerves and those of the surrounding conjunctiva which together form plexuses.

The purpose is to aid or improve vision. It does not include goggles or nonprescription sun glasses for which EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES is available.Lenses, Intraocular: Artificial implanted lenses.Lasers, Excimer: Gas lasers with excited dimers (i.e., excimers) as the active medium. The most commonly used are rare gas monohalides (e.g., argon fluoride, xenon chloride). Their principal emission wavelengths are in the ultraviolet range and depend on the monohalide used (e.g., 193 nm for ArF, 308 nm for Xe Cl). These lasers are operated in pulsed and Q-switched modes and used in photoablative decomposition involving actual removal of tissue. (UMDNS, 2005)Keratomileusis, Laser In Situ: A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM.

Results of small incision extracapsular cataract surgery using the anterior chamber maintainer without viscoelastic. (1/358)

AIMS: To assess the efficacy of extracapsular cataract surgery using the anterior chamber maintainer (ACM) without the use of viscoelastic. To compare the effects of this surgical technique on non-diabetic and diabetic patients. METHODS: A prospective single armed clinical trial of 46 eyes in 46 patients undergoing cataract surgery using the ACM without viscoelastic. Patients were assessed preoperatively and at 3 weeks, 3 months, and 12 months postoperatively. The main outcome variables included visual acuity, surgically induced astigmatic change (SIAC), changes in endothelial cell density (ECD), and morphology affecting the central and superior regions of the cornea. RESULTS: Postoperatively, 56% and 70% of patients had unaided visual acuities of 6/12 or better at 3 weeks and 3 months respectively. Even after excluding those patients with pre-existing maculopathy (including diabetic maculopathy), there remains a significant difference between the non-diabetic and diabetic groups in terms of the proportion of patients attaining an unaided visual acuity of 6/12 or better at both 3 weeks (p = 0.003) and 3 months (p = 0.001). Three months postoperatively, the SIAC based upon the keratometric and refractive data was 1.1 dioptres (D) and 1.3 D respectively. There was no statistically significant difference in the SIAC when the non-diabetic and diabetic groups were compared. The mean central and superior endothelial cell losses at 3 months postoperatively were 16% and 22% respectively and at 12 months postoperatively were 20% and 25% respectively. The diabetic group demonstrated greater endothelial cell losses and a more marked and protracted deviation of endothelial cell morphology from normality when compared with the non-diabetic group; however, the differences did not reach statistical significance. CONCLUSIONS: The efficacy of small incision cataract surgery using the ACM in terms of visual outcome and induced astigmatism is comparable with the results obtained using other techniques that utilise a similar size of incision. However, in view of the magnitude and range of the endothelial cell losses associated with this technique the concurrent use of viscoelastic is suggested. There does not appear to be a statistically or clinically significant difference between non-diabetic and diabetic patients in terms of the magnitude of the endothelial cell losses or in the wound healing response in the 12 months after cataract surgery using the ACM.  (+info)

Off-axis monochromatic aberrations estimated from double pass measurements in the human eye. (2/358)

Off-axis monochromatic aberrations in the human eye impose limits on peripheral vision. However, the magnitude of the aberrations off-axis, and in particular coma, has not been yet completely determined. We have developed a procedure to estimate third order aberrations in the periphery of the human eye. The technique is based on recording series of double pass retinal images with unequal entrance and exit pupil diameters (Artal, Iglesias, Lopez-Gil & Green (1995b). J. Opt. Soc. Am. A, 12, 2358-2366.) which allows the odd asymmetries in the retinal image be assessed. The procedure that is described provides accurate estimates of the main off-axis aberrations: astigmatism, defocus and coma. We have measured these aberrations in four normal subjects. For a given eccentricity, the measured amount of coma and astigmatism are relatively similar among subjects, because the angular distance from the axis is the dominant factor in determining the magnitude of these aberrations. However, we found considerable variability in the values of peripheral defocus, probably due to a complicate combination of off-axis aberrations and fundus shape. The final off-axis optical performance of the eye for a given object location is determined by a particular mixture of defocus, astigmatism, coma and higher order aberrations.  (+info)

Image quality in polypseudophakia for extremely short eyes. (3/358)

AIM: To evaluate the image quality produced by polypseudophakia used for strongly hypermetropic and nanophthalmic eyes. METHODS: Primary aberration theory and ray tracing analysis were used to calculate the optimum lens shapes and power distribution between the two intraocular lenses for two example eyes: one a strongly hypermetropic eye, the other a nanophthalmic eye. Spherical aberration and oblique astigmatism were considered. Modulation transfer function (MTF) curves were computed using commercial optical design software (Sigma 2100, Kidger Optics Ltd) to assess axial image quality, and the sagittal and tangential image surfaces were computed to study image quality across the field. RESULTS: A significant improvement in the axial MTF was found for the eyes with double implants. However, results indicate that this may be realised as a better contrast sensitivity in the low to mid spatial frequency range rather than as a better Snellen acuity. The optimum lens shapes for minimum spherical aberration (best axial image quality) were approximately convex-plano for both lenses with the convex surface facing the cornea. Conversely, the optimum lens shapes for zero oblique astigmatism were strongly meniscus with the anterior surface concave. Correction of oblique astigmatism was only achieved with a loss in axial performance. CONCLUSIONS: Optimum estimated visual acuity exceeds 6/5 in both the hypermetropic and the nanophthalmic eyes studied (pupil size of 4 mm) with polypseudophakic correction. These results can be attained using convex-plano or biconvex lenses with the most convex surface facing the cornea. If the posterior surface of the posterior intraocular lens is convex, as is commonly used to help prevent migration of lens epithelial cells causing posterior capsular opacification (PCO), then it is still possible to achieve 6/4.5 in the hypermetropic eye and 6/5.3 in the nanophthalmic eye provided the anterior intraocular lens has an approximately convex-plano shape with the convex surface anterior. It was therefore concluded that consideration of optical image quality does not demand that additional intraocular lens shapes need to be manufactured for polypseudophakic correction of extremely short eyes and that implanting the posterior intraocular lens in the conventional orientation to help prevent PCO does not necessarily limit estimated visual acuity.  (+info)

Cataract extraction and lens implantation with and without trabeculectomy: an intrapatient comparison. (4/358)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether cataract extraction and lens implantation combined with trabeculectomy provides better long-term results than cataract extraction and lens implantation alone in a group of patients with primary open-angle glaucoma and cataract randomly selected to receive surgery with trabeculectomy in one eye and without in the other. METHODS: A prospective, randomized clinical trial involving 35 patients with bilateral symmetric primary open-angle glaucoma and visually disabling cataracts with procedures performed by a single surgeon in a private practice setting with follow-up for more than 5 years in all cases. RESULTS: After an average of 87 months of follow-up, cataract extraction and lens implantation reduced intraocular pressure 4.4 mm Hg, reduced number of medications by 1.28, increased diopter vector of astigmatism by 1.49, and was associated with visual field loss in 6 of 35 eyes. After an average of 80 months of follow-up, cataract extraction, lens implantation, and trabeculectomy reduced intraocular pressure 8.2 mm Hg, reduced number of medications by 1.76, increased diopter vector of astigmatism by 1.14, and was associated with visual field loss in 1 eye. Both groups had similar improvement in visual acuity and perioperative complications. CONCLUSIONS: Extracapsular cataract extraction, lens implantation, and trabeculectomy is a complex procedure that was beneficial in the long-term control of intraocular pressure and in prevention of visual field loss. This procedure should be considered in patients who may not be able to comply with a complex medical regimen, in whom pressure elevation in the immediate postoperative period would be undesirable, or in whom long-term pressure control at a lower level would be beneficial in preventing further optic nerve damage.  (+info)

Topographic and keratometric astigmatism up to 1 year following small flap trabeculectomy (microtrabeculectomy). (5/358)

AIM: To determine the induced corneal astigmatism by measuring the changes in manual keratometry and computerised corneal videokeratoscopy up to 1 year following small flap trabeculectomy (microtrabeculectomy). METHOD: A prospective study of a case series of small flap trabeculectomy procedures performed at the 90 degree meridian on 16 eyes of 16 patients, all followed to 1 year postoperatively. Changes in manual keratometry and computerised videokeratoscopy (Eyesys) readings were analysed by vector analysis and vector decomposition techniques. RESULTS: By vector analysis, the mean surgically induced refractive change (SIRC) cylinder power vectors induced at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months as measured by manual keratometry were 0.68, 0.38, 0.52, and 0.55 dioptres, and by keratography 0.75, 0.66, 0.59, and 0.64 dioptres. Vector decomposition on the induced vector cylinders on manual keratometry resulted in a "with the rule" mean vector of 0.52 and 0.22 dioptres at 1 and 3 months and an "against the rule" mean vector of 0.16 and 0.16 dioptres at the same time points (p=0.03 and 0.28 respectively). Vector decomposition at 6 and 12 months revealed no significant with the rule changes induced. Similar analysis on the videokeratoscopy results revealed significant induced with the rule astigmatism until 3 months, but not at 6 and 12 months postoperatively. CONCLUSION: Small flap trabeculectomy (microtrabeculectomy) produces smaller changes in corneal curvature that resolve sooner than previous reports of larger flap techniques.  (+info)

Screening for refractive errors in children: accuracy of the hand held refractor Retinomax to screen for astigmatism. (6/358)

AIMS: To assess the reliability of the hand held automated refractor Retinomax in measuring astigmatism in non-cycloplegic conditions. To assess the accuracy of Retinomax in diagnosing abnormal astigmatism in non-cycloplegic refractive screening of children between 9 and 36 months. METHODS: Among 1205 children undergoing a non-cycloplegic refractive screening with Retinomax, 299 (25%) had repeated non-cycloplegic measurements, 302 (25%) were refracted under cycloplegia using the same refractor, and 88 (7%) using retinoscopy or an automated on table refractor. The reproducibility of non-cycloplegic cylinder measurement was assessed by comparing the cylindrical power and axis values in the 299 repeated measurements without cycloplegia. The influence of the quick mode on cylinder measurement was analysed by comparing the cylinder and axis value in 93 repeated measurements without cycloplegia where normal mode was used in one measurement and quick mode in the other. Predictive values of the refractive screening were calculated for three different thresholds of manifest astigmatism (> or = 1.5, > or = 1.75, and > or = 2 D) considering as a true positive case an astigmatism > or = 2 D under cycloplegic condition (measured by retinoscopy, on table, or hand held refractor). RESULTS: The 95% limits of agreement between two repeated manifest cylinder measurements with Retinomax attained levels slightly less than plus or minus 1 D. The 95% limits of agreement for the axis were plus or minus 46 degrees. The comparison of non-cycloplegic measurements in the quick and normal mode showed no significant difference and 95% limits of agreement plus or minus 0.75 D. The mean difference between non-cycloplegic and cycloplegic cylinder values measured by Retinomax reached 0.17 D and was statistically significant. Manifest thresholds of > or = 1.5 D, > or = 1.75 D, > or = 2 D cylinder value diagnosed 2 D of astigmatism under cyclplegia respectively with 71-84%, 59-80%, 51-54% of sensitivity (right eye-left eye) and 90-92%, 95%, 98% of specificity. CONCLUSION: Without cycloplegia, Retinomax is able to measure cylinder power with the same reproducibility as cycloplegic retinoscopy. No significant difference was found in the cylinder values obtained with the quick and the normal modes. Therefore, the quick mode of measurement is recommended as it is more feasible in children. No difference, which is significant from a screening point of view, exists between the non-cycloplegic and the cycloplegic cylinder value (< 0.25 D). Retinomax diagnoses abnormal astigmatism (> or = 2 D) in a non-cycloplegic refractive screening at preschool ages with 51-84% sensitivity rates and 98-90% specificity rates, depending on the chosen threshold of manifest astigmatism. If 2 D of manifest astigmatism is chosen as a positive test, the positive predictive value of the screening reaches 81-84% and the negative predictive value 91-90% (right eye-left eye).  (+info)

Proposed classification for topographic patterns seen after penetrating keratoplasty. (7/358)

AIMS: To create a clinically useful classification for post-keratoplasty corneas based on corneal topography. METHODS: A total of 360 topographic maps obtained with the TMS-1, from 95 eyes that had undergone penetrating keratoplasty (PKP), were reviewed independently by two examiners in a masked fashion, and were categorised according to a proposed classification scheme. RESULTS: A high interobserver agreement (88% in the first categorisation) was achieved. At 12 months post-PKP, a regular astigmatic pattern was observed in 20/85 cases (24%). This was subclassified as oval in three cases (4%), oblate symmetric bow tie in six cases (7%), prolate asymmetric bow tie in six cases (7%), and oblate asymmetric bow tie in five cases (6%). An irregular astigmatic pattern was observed in 61/85 cases (72%), subclassified as prolate irregular in five cases (6%), oblate irregular in four cases (5%), mixed in seven cases (8%), steep/flat in 11 cases (13%), localised steepness in 16 cases (19%), and triple pattern in three cases (4%). Regular astigmatic patterns were associated with significantly higher astigmatism measurements. The surface asymmetry index was significantly lower in the regular astigmatic patterns. CONCLUSIONS: In post-PKP corneas, the prevalence of irregular astigmatism is about double that of regular astigmatism, with a trend for increase of the irregular patterns over time.  (+info)

LASIK for post penetrating keratoplasty astigmatism and myopia. (8/358)

AIMS: To report the results of a series of patients who were treated with LASIK to correct post penetrating keratoplasty ametropia. METHODS: 26 eyes of 24 patients underwent LASIK to correct astigmatism and myopia after corneal transplantation; 14 eyes also received arcuate cuts in the stromal bed at the time of surgery. The mean preoperative spherical equivalent was -5.20D and the mean preoperative astigmatism was 8.67D. RESULTS: The results of 25 eyes are reported. The mean 1 month values for spherical equivalent and astigmatism were -0.24D and 2.48D respectively. 18 eyes have been followed up for 6 months or more. The final follow up results for these eyes are -1.91D and 2.92D for spherical equivalent and astigmatism. The patients undergoing arcuate cuts were less myopic but had greater astigmatism than those not. The patients receiving arcuate cuts had a greater target induced astigmatism, surgically induced astigmatism, and astigmatism correction index than those eyes that did not. One eye suffered a surgical complication. No eyes lost more than one line of BSCVA and all eyes gained between 0 and 6 lines UCVA. CONCLUSIONS: LASIK after penetrating keratoplasty is a relatively safe and effective procedure. It reduces both the spherical error and the cylindrical component of the ametropia. Correction of high astigmatism may be augmented by performing arcuate cuts in the stromal bed.  (+info)

Abstract: : Purpose:Astigmatism is a major problem after penetrating keratoplasty. The aims of this investigation were to determine whether there is a relation between preoperative diagnosis and postoperative astigmatism, and to investigate the benefit of relaxing incisions. Methods:Approximately 90% of the corneal transplants performed in Sweden since 1996 have been reported to the Swedish Cornea Transplant Register. Preoperative and 2-year postoperative data were collected. Astigmatism was measured in 844 patients after suture removal. In 81 of the patients relaxing incisions were used to decrease the postoperative astigmatism. The data were analysed by multiple regression methods. Results:The overall mean astigmatism was 4.6 D (95% CI 4.4 to 4.8) with 33% of the grafts having ,3 D of astigmatism. Multiple regression analysis after square root transformation of astigmatism showed no differences between different diagnostic groups although there was a slight increase in astigmatism with ...
Abstract: : Purpose: To investigate whether the human amniotic membrane can decrease the induced astigmatism of laser corneal refractive surgery. Methods: PARK (-3D of astigmatism 1800) was performed on both eyes of 10 albino rabbits, which were divided into 2 groups, each 10 eyes. Immediate after PARK, group A received amniotic membrane graft and group B received polyethylen film graft on cornea. The degree of astigmatism was measured with topography and cycloplegic refraction at preoperative and 4, 8, 12 weeks postoperatively and evaluated by vector analysis. Results: Topography data showed that mean preoperative average keratometry and corneal astigmatism had no significant difference in both groups. After 3 months, mean change of the corneal astigmatism was 1.440.86D in the group A, compared with 2.590.30D in the group B. This change of astigmatism showed significant difference, as well as the axis of astigmatism (p,0.05). The surgically induced astigmatism was 0.130.86D in the group A, ...
Astigmatism is usually detected through a routine eye exam. In the same manner that myopia and hyperopia are diagnosed, astigmatism is discovered with the same techniques and instruments. An estimation of the amount of astigmatism is performed via a retinoscopy, where light is directed into the eye while using a series of lenses.. Once astigmatism is diagnosed as the cause of vision problems, one of the following options can be pursued to provide treatment:. Corrective Lenses are the most common method to address astigmatism. Like far and nearsightedness, your optometrist can prescribe a lens shape that corrects for astigmatism.. Contact Lenses correct for visual irregularities in a similar manner that glasses do. A hard lens is used unlike soft contact lenses that some people are accustomed to. Lenses that correct for astigmatism require a long adaptation period so the wearer can become comfortable with them.. LASIK Surgery can also correct most types of astigmatism. This option should be ...
Astigmatism is a common condition in which the cornea of the eye has a shape similar to that of a football, rather than a normal corneal shape resembling a baseball. Because the cornea is oddly shaped, light bends unequally as it enters the eye, causing vision distortion or blurriness.. Many who suffer from astigmatism do not know that it can often be corrected with LASIK eye surgery. Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a popular form of laser eye surgery that reshapes the inner layer of the cornea to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. LASIK eye surgery has proven to be an effective treatment for many patients with mild or moderate astigmatism. LASIK is also a convenient option for many other people, even if they dont have astigmatism.. LASIK for astigmatism is accomplished by smoothing out the irregularities of the cornea at the precise points of the astigmatism, therefore allowing light to focus correctly on the retina. During the LASIK procedure in Buffalo, pulses of ...
Laser correction for myopia and astigmatism using an excimer laser has been performed with success for several years.. During the last 2 years, a new method for correction of refractive errors has emerged. In the method (ReLex) a femtosecond laser is used to cut a lenticule in the corneal stroma that is subsequently removed. For simple myopia this method has proved effective and on par with excimer baser LASIK. However, it remains to be determined if ReLEx is as effective in the treatment of astigmatism.. In the study, patients with high astigmatism are treated with conventional LASIK for astigmatism in one eye and with ReLEx for astigmatism in the other. ...

Definition of astigmatism in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is astigmatism? Meaning of astigmatism as a legal term. What does astigmatism mean in law?
According to the American Optometric Association, an astigmatism is "due either to the irregular shape of the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye or sometimes the curvature of the lens inside the eye." Most people have some level of astigmatism. When an astigmatism is great, it can cause blurred or distorted vision, eye pain and headaches. You can perform a simple test at home to see if you need treatment for an astigmatism.. ...
We report new optics designs for an optical coherence tomography (OCT) balloon imaging catheter to achieve diffraction-limited high resolution at a large working distance and enable the correction of severe astigmatism in the catheter. The designs employed a 1 mm diameter gradient-index lens of a properly chosen pitch number and a glass rod spacer to fully utilize the available NA of the miniature optics. Astigmatism caused by the balloon tubing was analyzed, and a method based on a cylindrical reflector was proposed and demonstrated to compensate the astigmatism. A catheter based on the new designs was successfully developed with a measured diffraction-limited lateral resolution of ...

Astigmatism is the result of the inability of the cornea to properly focus animage on the retina of the eye. The result is a blurred image.. The cornea is the outermost part of the eye. It is a transparent layer that covers the colored part of the eye (iris), pupil, and lens. The cornea bends light and helps to focus it onto the retina where specialized cells (photo receptors) detect light and transmit nerve impulses via the optic nerve to the brain where the image is formed. The cornea is dome shaped. Any incorrect shaping of the cornea results in an incorrect focusing of the light that passes through that part of the cornea.. Astigmatism is an image distortion that results from an improperly shaped cornea. Usually the cornea is spherical, like a baseball. In astigmatism, the cornea is elliptically shaped, more like a football. This causes a point of light will have two points of focus, instead of one nice sharp image on the retina.. This double focus results in blurry vision. What the blur ...
The shape of the cornea is distorted, thus, the astigmatism is unpredictable. Glasses can not be fabricated to correct for this optical error. Firm or rigid contact lenses must be used to neutralize the surface of the irregular astigmatism. As a matter of fact, contact lenses were initially prescribed in the 1920s to correct for this condition. If a patient has Kerataconus and contact lenses provide adequate vision, then no other treatment should be contemplated. However, if the patient can not tolerate a contact lens or can not see well out of his/her contact lenses, either intra-stromal Intas or a corneal transplant to replace the old cornea should be performe . The procedure is is usually successful (90%). Keratoconus because of its irregular astigmatism and associated corneal thinness is a contra-indication for LASIK (refractive surgery).. ...
Sixty six eyes of 58 patients were included. Age was 58.25+9.8 ranged from 43 to 77 years. Each group included 33 eyes. One month postoperative results: mean UCVA was 0.5 +0.12, group one (range 1.0 to 0.1), while for group 2 UCVA was 0.2+0.16 range (1.0 to 0.2). The difference was statistically significant (p?0.005). The average astigmatic value was 1.69+1.25 DS group 1 and 2.75+-0.75 group 2. The average astigmatic change (postoperative astigmatism - preoperative astigmatism) was 2.25 DS which was statistically higher than group 2 (1.25 (p?0.005). More cases with astigmatism against the rule (ATR) were present in group 1 one month postoperative (5:2 ). Two cases in group 2 had astigmatism of more than -3 DC with axis perpendicular to the suture, had the sutures removed.

Among available methods for treating astigmatism in cataract surgery, the implantation of toric IOLs is an emerging technology that shows promising results. Similar to implanting a one-piece acrylic lens, toric IOLs provide good distance vision and, in many patients, freedom from spectacles for distance vision. A low absolute residual refractive cylinder has been associated with the implantation of toric IOLs, and the safety profile for toric IOLs has been good. As improvements with regard to rotational stability and treatment and cylinder power range are made, toric IOLs will emerge as an effective, safe treatment option for correcting astigmatism during cataract surgery.. Further, to evidence on the safety and efficacy of TORIC IOL for patients having cataract associated with astigmatism served as the basis for us to identify the published literature on the safety and efficacy of TORIC IOL implantation in the treatment of cataract associated with astigmatism, thus provide a background for the ...
Arcuate keratotomy can be useful as it creates minimal surface disruption, can treat nonorthogonal astigmatism, and yields rapid visual recovery. This technique ensures an optical zone of constant diameter and homogeneity of depth over the entire length of the incision. Typically, post-PK keratotomies are done to a depth of 75% to 80% corneal thickness, and incisions are made at an optical zone 1.0 mm central to the graft-host junction.. Three different incision locations were described: graft, graft-host interface or host cornea. Refractive or keratometric pre-operative cylinder was between 11 D and 6.1 D, and an overall reduction ranging from 30 to 72% was observed, with manual or femtosecond-assisted techniques. Most of the patients with astigmatism higher than 6 D had residual cylinder less or equal to 3 D, which can be treated by laser excimer ablation, or secondary IOL implantation.. In the reported studies, manual keratotomy seems to have more complications (in particular wound ...
Lenticular astigmatism is rarer and caused by an irregularly shaped lens. It is associated with diabetes as blood sugar levels can result in a change in the lens shape. Corneal astigmatism is much more common and caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. The cornea is normally symmetrical and round, but in astigmatism the cornea can become elongated like a football. This causes the light rays to split in the eye, never achieving a singular point of focus ...

In any analysis of corneal tissue damage, the arrangement of the corneal collagen matrix has to be taken into account. Within the stroma collagen fibrils uniform in size and spacing are the major constituents of band-shaped lamellae. These lamellae are 10-230 μm wide and 0.2-2.5 μm thick. They cross one another at varying angles and split into branches and sub-branches, which are interlaced and merge with adjacent ones.20-24 Astigmatism is a significant problem after penetrating keratoplasty.1 3-8 Despite of advances in mechanical trephine design and suture technique, the mean postoperative astigmatism has been reported to be between 2.5 and 5 dioptres in a large keratoplasty series.1 3-6 Postoperative astigmatism is thought to be a result of imprecise trephination and differences between the donor button and the recipient cornea.1 3 7 8 When the GTS is used, the average postoperative astigmatism is very low (2.55 D; range 0-4.0 D) after PKP for keratoconus.5 The advantage of the GTS is that ...
Residual astigmatism is not uncommon after toric IOL implantation. Depending on its cause and magnitude, lens reorientation may be a good solution.
If either your cornea or lens is egg shaped with two mismatched curves, light rays arent bent properly, causing a refractive error. This makes a blurry image. Astigmatism is a type of refractive error.. Astigmatism occurs when your cornea or lens is curved more steeply in one direction than in another. You have corneal astigmatism if your cornea has mismatched curves. You have lenticular astigmatism if your lens has mismatched curves.. Either type of astigmatism can cause blurred vision. Blurred vision may occur more in one direction, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.. Astigmatism may be present from birth, or it may develop after an eye injury, disease or surgery. Astigmatism isnt caused or made worse by reading in poor light, sitting too close to the television or squinting.. ...
Learn about Cataract & Cataract Surgery with Astigmatism Correction including Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI) and Toric Lens Implants
Astigmatism is a common refractive eye condition that that is most often due to an uneven curvature of the cornea. If the cornea were perfectly shaped, it would have a spherical round even shape, like a basketball. In eyes that have astigmatism, the cornea is typically curved more like an oblong, football-like shape, similar to the shape of the back of a teaspoon.. "Depending on the degree and orientation of the unequal curvatures, astigmatism can cause mild or even severe blurry vision," explained Dr. Milstein. Patients with cataracts and who are in need of cataract surgery have three choices when considering how to correct their astigmatism. First, patients can simply choose to be dependent on wearing eyeglasses after cataract surgery in order to correct astigmatism. Second, if appropriate, some patients may opt to have an additional surgical procedure called Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI) or third, patients can elect have an astigmatism correcting toric lens implant in which the astigmatism ...
All refractive problems have their root in an improper curvature of your cornea, and so it is with astigmatism. It can cause blurry or wavy vision close up, far away, and at intermediate distances. Fortunately, just as with nearsightedness and farsightedness, eyeglasses or contacts can simply and effectively correct astigmatism. If you experience signs such as headaches, fatigue, eyestrain, and blurry vision, its possible that you have astigmatism. To get a definite diagnosis, just call us to schedule an eye exam with Dr. Deavers.

What I worry about is how the various health insurance companies will process claims with the new ICD-10 coding. The new coding is more specific than the old coding. For example, ICD-9 code for regular astigmatism is 367.21. There is no specific code for the right eye or the left eye. With ICD-10 regular astigmatism can be coded H52.211 (regular astigmatism right eye, H52.212 (regular astigmatism, left eye), H52.213 (regular astigmatism both eyes) or H52.219 (regular astigmatism unspecified eye). In order for a claim to be paid will insurance companies require the eye to be specified or will they allow us to submit a claim without specifying the eye, or will some insurance companies require eye specified and some not. There is already huge diversity in what insurance companies allow and what insurance companies do not allow, and sometimes it seems to be aimed at ways, or excuses, for the insurers not to pay a claim which , except for some technicality contrived by the insurance company, they ...

I just had custom Lasik 2 weeks ago to correct my distant vision and now I am thinking a made a huge mistake by not going with the monovision. My intermediate vision is not good which I thought and was hoping to have after the surgery. My eyes are occasionally dry after the surgery, meaning I put wetting drops in them about 4 times or so a day. I had such a small amount of astigmatism in my left eye before the surgery, they said it wasnt enough to correct the astigmatism in that eye so they didnt do anything about the astigmatism in that eye. A few day after the surgery I started seeing double with my left eye. On my week follow-up my Dr. told me that I have residual astigmatism in that eye that might have been induced by the surgery. He said I may have to have an enhancement done on that eye but well have to wait and see if it corrects itself. Oh, by the way I am 49 years old, in case you are wondering. My first question is, do you think there is a good chance the astigmatism will go away on ...
I just had custom Lasik 2 weeks ago to correct my distant vision and now I am thinking a made a huge mistake by not going with the monovision.

At Coastal Eye Care, many of our patients that are interested in cataract surgery have complaints of difficulty driving at night. Many of those same patients also have astigmatism, which occurs when the cornea - or front window of the eye - is irregularly shaped or more curved in one direction than the other. This causes light images to focus at multiple points. According to the National Institute of Health and the National Eye Institute, astigmatism can be associated with difficulty driving at night. One of our most popular and successful options is our Night Vision package, designed for patients with low-to-moderate amounts of astigmatism. Our Night Vision package is designed for those patients who want to enjoy the best possible vision for night driving by reducing or eliminating their corneal astigmatism. It includes additional testing and measurements, as well as surgical treatment of your astigmatism, if necessary.. This is the best option for the individual who want to improve their ...
Modern cataract surgery has seen many advances during the last few years. The intraocular lenses which are placed at the time of cataract surgery can now offer correction of astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness. There are also special lenses which can correct both near and distance vision.. The astigmatism correcting lenses are called Toric intraocular lenses. Astigmatism means the eye has different radii of curvature in the vertical and horizontal axes, as would a football laying on the ground. In the past, these patients would require glasses to correct the astigmatism after their cataract surgery. Now they can have good distance vision without glasses in most cases.. Another really exciting new development is the advent of lenses which correct for both distance and near. There are two types of lenses in this category, Multifocal lenses and Accomodating lenses. Multifocal lenses have rings which allow the patient to have two focal points, one for far and one for near. Accomodating ...
The longer the mean axial length in both eyes, the greater the differences in axial length, mean keratometry, anterior chamber depth, and corneal astigmatism in both eyes. This outcome is assumed to be attributable to the difference in axial length. It was observed that the longer the axial length in one eye, the deeper the anterior chamber depth, and the flatter the mean keratometry value, the greater the corneal astigmatism. The anterior chamber depth was shallower and the mean keratometry value increased with increasing age, whereas corneal astigmatism tended to decrease until the patients were in their sixth decade, but increased afterward ...
Also in astigmatism corrections, after the amount, you will see an (X), this stands for axis. Astigmatism has a maximum power in a certain meridian or direction, which we call axis. Axis run from 1 to 180 and then starts all over again. Axis 0 is the same as axis 180 and we never write axis 0, its always 180. The unit of measure here is degrees, and here the higher number doesnt mean its stronger, its just oriented differently. We use primarily axis 180 and axis 90 on our VOSH trips, although all numbers are possible.. Try to study astigmatism axis. Most of the questions asked on VOSH trips and most of the mistakes made in picking the correct glasses for someone deal with axis or astigmatism. Always try to get as close to what is prescribed as possible. Axis 90 is as far from axis 180 as you can possibly get. If the Doctor has prescribed axis 90, dont pick glasses with axis 5, or 175 or 180, rather pick something close to 90, such as 80, 85, 95 or 100. If the Doctor prescribes axis 180, ...

Ocala, FL (PRWEB) February 21, 2013 -- Dr. Seaborn Hunt, III, a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and eye surgeon serving Ocala, Belleview, and The Villages, FL,
The cornea is a part of the eye that helps focus light to create an image on the retina. It works in much the same way that the lens of a camera focuses light to create an image on film. The bending and focusing of light is also known as refraction. Usually the shape of the cornea and the eye are not perfect and the image on the retina is out-of-focus (blurred) or distorted. These imperfections in the focusing power of the eye are called refractive errors. There are three primary types of refractive errors: They are myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Persons with myopia, or nearsightedness, have more difficulty seeing distant objects as clearly as near objects. Persons with hyperopia, or farsightedness, have more difficulty seeing near objects as clearly as distant objects. Astigmatism is a distortion of the image on the retina caused by irregularities in the cornea or lens of the eye. Combinations of myopia and astigmatism or hyperopia and astigmatism are common. In LASIK surgery, a precise and ...

Con: If you have astigmatism and choose a monofocal lens, you may still need to wear glasses all the time.. Astigmatism is a very common vision condition that causes blurred vision due either to the irregular shape of the cornea or the curvature of the lens inside the eye. Toric Monofocal IOLs Toric IOLs can also be used to correct astigmatism, depending on how the cornea is shaped. In addition to replacing the lens, many surgeons make small incisions in the cornea - called limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) - to help reshape it. Depending on the degree of astigmatism, your surgeon may recommend a toric IOL or an LRI or both. Pro: Toric lenses generally provide clear distance vision. For some people, toric lenses give them the crispest vision of their life ...

The most common types of refractive errors are myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.. Myopia (nearsightedness) is a condition where objects up close appear clearly, while objects far away appear blurry. With myopia, light comes to focus in front of the retina instead of on the retina.. Hyperopia (farsightedness) is a common type of refractive error where distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are near. However, people experience hyperopia differently. Some people may not notice any problems with their vision, especially when they are young. For people with significant hyperopia, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far.. Astigmatism is a condition in which the eye does not focus light evenly onto the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. This can cause images to appear blurry and stretched out.. Presbyopia is an age-related condition in which the ability to focus up close becomes more difficult. As the eye ages, the lens can ...
Purpose: To compare refraction and ocular biometry in European Caucasian children aged 6-7 years and 12-13 years living in Sydney, Australia and Northern Ireland. Methods: All children had a comprehensive eye examination, including cycloplegic (cyclopentolate 1%) autorefraction (Sydney; Canon RK-F1, Northern Ireland; Shin-Nippon SRW-5000) and ocular biometry (IOLMaster, Carl Ziess). Hyperopia was defined as a right spherical equivalent refraction (SER) of ≥+2.00 dioptres (D), myopia as ≤-0.50D and astigmatism as a cylindrical error of ≥1.00D.Results: The mean SER was similar at age 6-7 yrs (p=0.9), however, at 12-13 yrs, children in Northern Ireland had a significantly less hyperopic mean SER (+0.66D) than children in Sydney (+0.83D, p=0.008). The prevalence of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism was significantly greater in Northern Ireland than Sydney at both ages (all p ,0.03). The distribution of refraction was highly leptokurtic in both samples, but less so in Northern Ireland ...
Results The overall prevalence of SE and cylindrical anisometropia ≥1.0 D were 2.7% and 3.0%, for the overall sample and in children of European-Caucasian ethnicity, 3.2%, 1.9%; East-Asian 1.7%, 5.2%; South-Asian 2.5%, 3.6%; Middle-Eastern ethnicities 2.2%, 3.3%, respectively. Anisometropia prevalence was lower or similar to that in the Baltimore Pediatric Eye Disease Study, Multi-Ethnic Pediatric Eye Disease Study and the Strabismus, Amblyopia and Refractive error in Singapore study. Risk (OR) of anisometropic amblyopia with ≥1.0 D of SE and cylindrical anisometropia was 12.4 (CI 4.0 to 38.4) and 6.5 (CI 2.3 to 18.7), respectively. We found an increasing risk of anisometropia with higher myopia ≥−1.0 D, OR 61.6 (CI 21.3 to 308), hyperopia , +2.0 D, OR 13.6 (CI 2.9 to 63.6) and astigmatism ≥1.5 D, OR 30.0 (CI 14.5 to 58.1).. ...
Patients with myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism can now reduce or eliminate their dependence on contact lenses and eyeglasses through refractive surgery that includes radial keratotomy (RK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), laser thermal keratoplasty (LTK) and intrastromal corneal rings (ICR). Since the approval of the excimer laser in 1995, the popularity of RK has declined because of the superior outcomes from PRK and LASIK. In patients with low-to-moderate myopia, PRK produces stable and predictable results with an excellent safety profile. LASIK is also efficacious, predictable and safe, with the additional advantages of rapid vision recovery and minimal pain. LASIK has rapidly become the most widely performed refractive surgery, with high patient and surgeon satisfaction. Noncontact Holium: YAG LTK provides satisfactory correction in patients with low hyperopia. ICR offers patients with low myopia the potential advantage of removal if the vision
Photorefractive keratectomy: measuring the matrix metalloproteinase activity and chondroitin sulfate concentration in tear fluid Tetsuya Mutoh, Masaya Nishio, Yukihiro Matsumoto, Kiyomi Arai, Makoto ChikudaDepartment of Ophthalmology, Dokkyo Medical University Koshigaya Hospital, Saitama, JapanAbstract: We herein report the case of a 20-year-old man who underwent a photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). We measured matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) activity and chondroitin 4 sulfate and chondroitin 6 sulfate concentrations in tear fluid. Tear fluid was collected preoperatively via microcapillary tube, and was collected postoperatively on the first and fourth days, and after one week, one month, three months, and six months. Samples were formulated by dilution with 200 µL of saline. MMP-9 activity was analyzed by an enzyme immunocapture activity assay, and the concentrations of chondroitin sulfate were analyzed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. No complications were observed after surgery, except for a
