To report the results of astigmatism correction using the Victus femtosecond laser arcuate incisions during cataract surgery
Sixty one consecutive eyes with corneal astigmatism ranging from +0.45 Diopters (D) to +4.0 D were treated with the Victus femtosecond laser to perform arcuate incisions immediately prior to phacoemulsification and crystalens implantation. Follow-up examinations were performed at 1 day, 1 week and 1 month
At 1 month follow-up, the mean refractive cylinder was reduced significantly from 1.34 D (Confidence Interval (CI) 1.14-1.53) to 0.51D (CI 0.26-0.75) (P<.001). The mean best corrected visual acuity improved significantly from 0.36 LogMAR (CI 0.29-0.39) to 0.13 LogMAR (CI 0.09-0.17) (P<0.001). No adverse effects occurred during procedures.
The Victus femtosecond laser is safe and effective for the treatment of mild to moderate astigmatism during cataract surgery.
