This study investigates the effects of trabeculectomy and combined phacoemulsification plus trabeculectomy on corneal astigmatism.
Prospectively, consecutive patients at the University Hospital of Zurich undergoing either trabeculectomy (trab) or phaco-trabeculectomy (phaco-trab) are included in this study between January and December 2017. The study interventions takes place 6 months after surgery and include examination of refraction, biometry and corneal topography in order to assess the patient's astigmatism. The values are compared to the preoperative baseline values, which are available from patient records.

Irregular astigmatism is one of the most serious and frequent complications of corneal refractive surgery and one of the worst sequelae of other forms of corneal surgery . It is also consi...
To analyze the difference between measured total corneal astigmatism and actual corneal astigmatism under different region modes and optimize the region setting.
The primary goal of the study is to determine if Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) measurement of corneal power and astigmatism is more accurate than conventional Placido-ring corneal top...
The aim of the study was to identify whether preoperative corneal astigmatism can influence corneal biomechanics and the assessment of intraocular pressure (IOP) following micro-incision p...
To assess which commercially available measurement device is most accurate in measuring low (< 1.0 D) degrees of corneal astigmatism.
To investigate the impact of the orientation of preoperative corneal astigmatism on achieving the postoperative target refraction following monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.
Purpose This study aims to describe the characteristics of corneal astigmatism before surgery in congenital ectopia lentis (CEL) patients. Methods This retrospective study reviewed 306 CEL patients fr...
To evaluate a new method of calculation of total corneal astigmatism based on Gaussian optics and the power design of a spherocylindrical lens (C) in the healthy eye and to compare it with keratometri...
To provide the first description of posterior corneal astigmatism as measured by the IOLMaster 700 (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany) and assess how its characteristics compare to previous measuremen...
To evaluate the effect on visual acuity of the implantation of a new intraocular pinhole device (Xtrafocus) in cases of irregular corneal astigmatism with significant visual impairment.
Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.
The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.
Refraction of LIGHT effected by the media of the EYE.
A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.
New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
