There are some reports that show the technolass 116 have more effective power in astigmatism correction than other instruments. This study has performed in Baghyatolla hospital by use of technolas 116 on astigmat patients in 2001.
Materials and methods: 100 eyes of 60 patients were examined before and after surgery. The mean age of patients was 32±9.1 years. Their astigmatism was treated by lasik and they followed in 3 months. Date were collected during this period and then analyzed with T-test SPSS software.
Results: The mean astigmatism before lasik was 1.91±0.85 diopter, but it reached after lasik to 0.34±0.14 diopter after lasik. The BCVA was 0.8±0.2. The reduction of astigmatism was 83%. No differences were observed between in male and females and also in all ages.
Conclusion: It seems that effectiveness of technolas 116 in correction of astigmatism (83%) is more than other instruments.
