A Simple, One-Handed Method for Rotating a Toric IOL

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, Refractive | Posted 12/14/2009

In this video, Dr. Cionni describes a safe and simple one-handed technique for rotating the AcrySof Toric IOL to the final desired axis after removal of the OVD. To dial the lens into place, the I/A port is turned posteriorly and rested directly on the midperiphery of the anterior surface of the IOL’s optic, near the toric IOL’s markings. Vacuum is applied until the IOL is firmly suctioned to the aspiration port, and then the IOL is rotated until it aligns with the corneal axial markings made at the beginning of surgery.
