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 of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.
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.
Deviations from the average or standard indices of refraction of the eye through its dioptric or refractive apparatus.
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.
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.
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)
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.

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)

Baseline J0 data showed an average WTR keratometric astigmatism of 0.85 D and an average ATR internal astigmatism of 0.31 D (Table 1), resulting in WTR refractive astigmatism (J0 +0.54 D). J0 measurements of keratometric and internal astigmatism (Table 4) were positively correlated, indicating a decrease in ATR internal astigmatism with increasing level of ATR keratometric astigmatism. However, correlations were weak, and the relation explained little variability (r2 values , 0.05). Regression analyses predicting baseline refractive astigmatism from keratometric astigmatism provided further evidence of the independence of magnitude of WTR keratometric astigmatism and ATR internal astigmatism (Table 5). The constant and slope in these regressions represent the influence of internal astigmatism. For WTR astigmatism (J0), regression constants were significantly less than 0, reflecting a fixed component of internal compensation. Regression slopes tended to be close to 1 (not significantly different ...
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 ...
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 ...
People can be born with astigmatism - in fact, most people probably are born with some degree of astigmatism - and they may have it along with other refractive errors: nearsightedness (myopia) or farsightedness (hyperopia).. While adults with a higher degree of astigmatism may realize their vision isnt as good as it should be, children who have astigmatism symptoms may not be aware they have this condition, and are unlikely to complain about blurred or distorted vision. But uncorrected astigmatism can seriously impact a childs ability to achieve in school and sports. And some forms of astigmatism can be a sign of keratoconus, a cone-like bulge of the cornea, which can distort vision. Thats why it is crucial that children have regular eye exams to detect astigmatism or other vision problems as early as possible.. fonte: https://www.aao.org/eye-health/diseases/what-is-astigmatism. ...

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?
The differences that prevail between the cornea that creates the astigmatism and the refractive cylinder that corrects it optically are prevalent and signiftcant, and can play a role in adverse refractive and qualitative outcomes. Addressing these differences during the planning of the surgery provides a uniform paradigm for all astigmatism procedures. Including corneal in addition to refractive values in the treatment plan reduces the amount of overall astigmatism in the eye and provides advantages in outcomes for any corneal refractive astigmatism surgery ...
The decision whether to use corneal relaxing incisions or a toric IOL to reduce preexisting astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery is determined by the surgeons level of comfort and experience with each modality as well as specific characteristics of a given patient. I am fortunate to have learned incisional keratotomy and astigmatic theory from pioneers such as Spencer Thornton, MD. I began correcting astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery in the late 1980s, as first described by Dr. Osher2,3 and later by William Maloney, MD.4 In the early 1990s, I became familiar with LRIs through my good friend David Dillman, MD, who first observed Stephen Hollis, MD, as he performed this important variation of AK. I have gradually modified Dr. Hollis nomogram5 and have achieved superb results with stable outcomes during the past 10 years.6. Using the current NAPA (Nichamin age- and pachymetry-adjusted) nomogram along with pachymetry-guided adjustable depth settings of the diamond blade, I can ...
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.

The invention relates to ophthalmology and is intended for the correction of myopic asthenia UV laser with a wavelength of 193 nm, with an intensity distribution having the shape of a truncated iris Gaussian distribution, forms a round spot on the cornea size 1-7 mm, the center of radiation is initially installed at a distance of 0-2 mm from the center of the optical zone of the eye. Then produce an elliptical scanning with variable angular velocity specified spots on the surface of the eye. The angular velocity is reduced in areas adjacent to the maximum axis of astigmatism, and increases in areas adjacent to the minimum axis of astigmatism. The major axis of the ellipse coincides with the main axis of astigmatism. Produce 5-20 rpm for 1 min for 0.5 to 5.0 min (see RF Patent №2192223).. However, this solution has significant drawbacks: a large number of surface heterogeneity and a great time of the operation.. The technical problem solved by this invention is to improve the uniformity of the ...
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 ...

Astigmatic subjects are adapted to their astigmatism and perceptually recalibrate on its correction. However, whether perceptual changes parallel changes in visual acuity is unknown. Visual acuity was measured during a 6-month period in nonastigmats, corrected astigmats, and uncorrected astigmats (who were given spectacles after the first session) under induction of astigmatism at different axis while controlling aberrations. Induction of astigmatism decreases visual performance and is axis dependent. It was better for astigmatism induced at 90 degrees in nonastigmats and at their natural axis in astigmats. This suggests that astigmats may store adaptation states/cues related to their natural astigmatism. (p. 1430). ...

BACKGROUND: Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world, and clinically significant astigmatism may affect up to approximately 20% of people undergoing cataract surgery. Pre-existing astigmatism in people undergoing cataract surgery may be treated, among other techniques, by placing corneal incisions near the limbus (limbal relaxing incisions or LRIs) or by toric intraocular lens (IOLs) specially designed to reduce or treat the effect of corneal astigmatism on unaided visual acuity. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of toric IOLs compared with LRIs in the management of astigmatism during phacoemulsification cataract surgery. SEARCH METHODS: We searched CENTRAL (which contains the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Trials Register; 2019, Issue 9); Ovid MEDLINE; Ovid Embase and four other databases. The date of the search was 27 September 2019. SELECTION CRITERIA: We included randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing toric IOLs with LRIs during phacoemulsification cataract surgery. DATA ...

Glasses and contact lenses are the usual methods to treat astigmatism. Lenses that are used to treat astigmatism are cylinder lenses which help bend the light rays onto the retina. Depending on your life style and preference, you can choose glasses or contact lenses. Contact lenses are ideal for sports activities. If you do not like to wear contact lenses or glasses, you may also want to try orthokeratology. Orthokeratology is a procedure in which you wear rigid contact lenses at night to even out the curvature of the cornea. Then you wear contact lenses less frequently. But if you discontinue the procedure, the shape of the cornea returns to the original shape.. ...

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 ...

Astigmatism can cause many of us to have sight problems at multiple distances. Unlike other optical conditions, which require what most believe to be regular lenses that are specially tuned to correct sight at near or distance vision, astigmatism requires special lenses to insure the prescription you need matches the shape of your eyes. The shape of every single persons eyes are different, and the sight conditions we live with change then ever more as they continue to develop. As we grow older, astigmatism tops out, however, age brings other sight problems. If you are experiencing vision problems apart from your astigmatism, you should never hesitate to visit your local Las Vegas optometrist to ask how aging changes your sight, and what you can do about it.. If you are over the age of 40 and having problems with sight, even with a prescription you believe to be up to date, you are most likely experiencing the symptoms of presbyopia. As eyes age, the flexible natural lens of these important ...

Older age and higher preoperative astigmatism, sphere, and corneal steepness are associated with higher rates of myopic LASIK retreatment, but larger optical ablation zones might decrease retreatment rates, a new study suggests. Its authors evaluated 9177 right eyes in 9177 consecutive LASIK cases performed between January 2005 and December 2012. They found that 165 (1.80%) had at least one retreatment. Multiple binary logistic regression analysis showed that the significant cutoffs associated with retreatments were age greater than 50 years, astigmatism more than 1.5 D, and sphere more than 2.0 D. The study also showed that over the course of the study, the two-year retreatment rate decreased from 2.58% to 0.38% (P , .001).. http://education.escrs.org/myopic-laser-in-situ-keratomileusis-retreatment-incidence-and-associations/. ...
BACKGROUNDS: Little information is currently available on the long-term safety of eyes following limbal tissue donation. We have therefore evaluated long-term refractive changes, corneal surface stability, and visual outcome following limbal tissue donation of 180 degrees with permanent amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT). METHODS: Four healthy eyes of four patients underwent limbal keratectomy involving half of the limbal circumference (half limbal) for the purpose of limbal donation with permanent AMT. The best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), astigmatic changes by manifest refraction, and corneal surface changes as assessed by slit-lamp examination and by impression cytology were evaluated. RESULTS: The mean follow-up period was 20.8 months (range: 19-24 months). BCVA remained unchanged in three eyes (75%), but eye one showed a BCVA decrease of two lines due to newly developed filamentary keratitis caused by Sjogrens syndrome. The average astigmatism change was an increase of 0.31 ...
I had lasik about 4 years ago with good results. My vision in my right eye wasnt as good as my left, but I was overall very happy with the lasik. About 1-2 months ago I started having double vision. It was binocular, and goes away when I tilt my head back or forward or close one eye. I went to the eye doc and he did an exam. It seemed like a pretty standard eye exam, and he didnt seem to concerned about my diplopia. He said I have an irregular astigmatism and gave me a prescription for glasses. I have to wait another week before my glasses come in, so out of curiousity I did some searching on the internet. Seems alot of causes for binocular diplopia are pretty scarry. Is an irregular astigmatism a very common cause of this? Im anxious to get my glasses to see if it goes away, but in the mean time am I being a worry wort ...
This was a retrospective study of consecutive eyes suitable for corneal laser eye surgery examined at the London Vision Clinic between January 2006 and May 2006, where a preoperative Orbscan (Bausch and Lomb) measurement was available. The eyes were divided in 3 groups based on their manifest refraction spherical equivalent (SEQ). Eyes with -0.25 ≤ SEQ ≤ +0.50D and with astigmatism ≤ 1D were included in the emmetropic group. Eyes with SEQ ≤ -0.50D and no mixed astigmatism were included in the myopic group and eyes with SEQ > +0.50D and no mixed astigmatism were included in the hyperopic group. Angle kappa was measured with the Orbscan II software using two different methods: the value of the angle kappa (in degrees) automatically output by the software was recorded and the pupil offset defined as the distance (in millimetres) in the corneal plane between the corneal vertex and the pupil centre was manually measured ...
