To evaluate visual acuity VA and refractive status in patients with cataract and irregular astigmatism with a regular central component after phacoemulsification with implantation of a toric intraocular lens IOL. Patients with cataract associated with irregular astigmatism with a regular central component were enrolled. All patients underwent phacoemulsification and toric IOL implantation.
Astigmatism is a common condition in which the surface of the eye, or cornea, is not curved in the normal way, leading to blurred vision. The abnormal curve of the cornea means that when light enters the eye, it is not correctly focused on the retina, resulting in an unclear image. It can affect children and adults. It is usually congenital, or present at birth, but it can develop after an eye operation or an injury to the eye. It is one of a group of eye conditions called refractive errors.
Educational Objectives: After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:. Target Audience: This activity is intended for optometrists engaged in the care of patients with irregular astigmatism. Accreditation Statement: In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Review Education Group. Postgraduate Institute for Medicine is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center, to provide continuing education for the healthcare team. Course ID is AS.
We report the case of an 8-year-old girl with early bilateral keratoconus who presented with allergic conjunctivitis and persistent eye rubbing. Although our patient did not exhibit steep keratometry, early cones and inferotemporal thinnest corneal thicknesses were detected in both eyes using Scheimpflug imaging Oculus GmbH Pentacam, Wetzlar, Germany. This is a case of early diagnosed keratoconus in a young patient.
Astigmatism is a refractive error characterized by a variation in the dioptric power of the eye from one meridian to another. The etiology is still unknown, but it is probably influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Among the common risk factors are a family history of astigmatism; myopia; Native American, East Asian, Hispanic, or Brazilian ethnic origin; eye trauma or surgery; and certain genetic and eyelid pathologies.
Astigmatism is an irregularly shaped cornea or lens that prevents light from focusing properly on the retina, the light-sensitive surface at the back of the eye. The surface of the cornea is shaped more like a football instead of round like a basketball and the eye is unable to focus light rays to a single point. In this case, vision becomes out of focus at any distance.
Keratoconus is a progressive disease of the cornea which can lead to blindness as irregular astigmatism increases. Currently, a variety of methods are available for the treatment of keratoconus, and in certain cases, it may be difficult to choose the most appropriate option. This article reviews available treatment modalities for keratoconus to provide the practitioner with practical and useful information for selecting the most suitable option for each individual patient.
Since the advent of keratorefractive surgery and its rising popularity, irregular astigmatism has become an increasingly important issue for ophthalmologists and optometrists.

Despite the success of LASIK and PRK, there are more and more patients experiencing visual quality problems due to the non-physiological modification of the corneal structure. Among these complications, irregular astigmatism is perhaps the most difficult to treat. The first of its kind,Irregular Astigmatism: Diagnosis and Treatmentsynthesizes our knowledge and understanding of irregular astigmatism and addresses state-of-the-art technology in management and treatment. Ming Wang, assisted by Dr. Tracy Swartz, has led a team of internationally known experts in the field to produce this innovative, comprehensive, and logically presented text, which includes more than illustrations to supplement the information provided.

Astigmatism is not a disease; it is simply a type of refractive error or vision condition, which causes blurry, fuzzy or distorted vision. Astigmatism is a condition caused by subtle flaws in the way your eye bends light a process called refraction that passes to the retina, the light-sensitive area at the back of the eyeball.
Ну только подумайте. Усадить человека моих лет на мотоцикл. Просто позор. - Могу я для вас что-нибудь сделать. Клушар задумался, польщенный оказанным вниманием.
И, как бы желая обратить все в игру, сделал еще один шаг. Но он не был готов к тому, что произошло в следующее мгновение.
