Figure 8 shows how even patients who underwent corneal transplantations decades ago can undergo a procedure to successfully correct their astigmatism using a laser ASA technique. They also can receive toric IOL implants and achieve very successful outcomes and refractive stability.
Figure 9 shows the case of a ship’s captain who required superior vision in his only seeing eye.
The functioning eye had severe asteroid hyalosis and high astigmatism. I performed a cataract surgery with implantation of a toric IOL, with high confidence that the patient would achieve unaided 20/20 vision and continue his visually demanding lifestyle.
