Today's top challenges with toric IOLs Best practices are key to success in surgical management of astigmatism N inety-five percent of 2018 ASCRS Clinical Survey respondents believe patients with clinically significant astig- matism should be offered astigmatism correction during cataract surgery (Figure 1). 1 However, the survey revealed that an average of 20% of patients with clinically signifi- cant astigmatism receive toric intraocular lenses (IOLs). Sumit "Sam" Garg, MD, explained that surgeons may face several challenges when incorporating toric IOLs into their practices. They include integrating assessments into workups, identifying astigma- tism, determining the most appropriate correction meth- od, and achieving optimal results. Dr. Garg offered tips to help surgeons make the most of toric technologies and de- liver optimal visual outcomes. Identifying solutions Dr. Garg includes corneal topography in the routine workup of cataract surgery candidates, which determines whether astigmatism is regular or irregular and confirms biometry and autokeratometry readings. Topography images also can be shared with pa- tients as the surgeon educates them about astigmatism man- agement. He also emphasized the need to examine corneal astigmatism.
