Approach to cataract surgery in patients with irregular astigmatism due to pronounced corneal pathology

Cover Page


In the article, the results of cataract surgery results in a patient with irregular astigmatism due to corneal comorbidity are presented. The authors demonstrate the efficacy and the safety of the method of residual astigmatism correction with the implantation of an additional pseudophakic IOL Sulcoflex (Rayner, Great Britain).
