Errors in supplementary toric IOL implantation (Sulcoflex toric, Rayner)

Cover Page


In the article, the results of a combined surgical treatment method of induced astigmatism in a pseudophakic eye are presented. The authors describe an initial case of “wrong” supplementary toric IOL Sulcoflex (Rayner, Great Britain) position and its influence on aberrometric parameters.
