Abstract

Aim: To evaluate post-operative astigmatism in 5.2 mm temporal clear corneal incision for cataract surgery.
Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective data analysis study of 20 cataract surgery cases operated at Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine & Health sciences, S.G.T University Gurugram Haryana. All cases were operated using temporal clear corneal phacoemulsification technique, followed by implantation of 5.2 mm rigid PMMA IOL.
Results: Post -operative astigmatism was calculated using online SIA calculator (SIA calculator version 2.1). The mean astigmatism at one month duration was calculated. The mean astigmatism at one month duration was 1.02 D at 104 degree.
