First Experiences with the Rayner (571T) Toric IOL

Heidelberg, Germany.


Astigmatism over 3 D can hardly be corrected completely using special cut techniques or sutures during cataract
surgery. Therefore, the implantation of an individually manufactured toric IOL is a good alternative.

Patients and Method:

At the Department of Ophthalmology, Universitity of Heidelberg, Germany, we implanted the Rayner toric IOL
(model: 571T) in 9 eyes of 6 cataract patients (47 to 71 years old).


The preoperative refraction was between –3.25 and +4.0 D (sphere) and between –6.75 and –2.0 D (cylinder)
respectively. The lens power ranged between 6.5 and 21.5 D (sphere) and between 2.0 and 10 D (torus)
respectively. Three months postoperatively, the patients achieved a mean UCVA of 20/50 and BCVA of 20/32
(range 20/40 to 20/20). By comparing the target refraction with the spherical equivalent, we calculated a mean
difference of only 0.5 D. Postoperatively, remaining cylinder values between 0.5 and 3 D were evaluated.


The Rayner toric IOL showed good functional results as well as a stable position in the capsular bag with only
low scores for decentration and rotation.
