Astigmatism management is critical to achieve good uncorrected vision in the patient undergoing IOL surgery. Toric IOLs and astigmatic keratotomy are useful in correction of astigmatism. IOL centration and alignment are critical and may need to be adjusted postoperatively. Laservision correction such as PRK or LASIK can also be used to improve results if the goal is not met with the initial surgery.
