Abstract

Introduction: This report describes a case involving photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for correction of residual astigmatism after bilateral cataract surgery with implantation of a new range of presbyopia-correcting intraocular lenses (TECNIS Synergy).

Patient and Clinical Findings: A 68-year-old man who underwent cataract surgery with implantation of TECNIS Synergy IOL in both eyes presented 3 months after surgery with an uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) of 20/50 in the right eye and 20/40 in the left eye. In addition, a corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) of 20/20 in the right eye (+0.50 -1.25 × 180) and 20/20 in the left eye (+0.50 -1.00 × 180).

Diagnosis, Intervention, and Outcomes: The patient was diagnosed with residual astigmatism after cataract surgery in both eyes. Thus, PRK was planned for correction of the residual astigmatism in both eyes. The patient showed good postoperative outcomes with an uncorrected visual acuity of 20/20 at distance, 20/30+ at intermediate, and 20/20 at near in both eyes. He reported high satisfaction with the outcome.

Conclusions: PRK was safe and effective for correction of residual astigmatism after cataract surgery with TECNIS Synergy. Correction of small astigmatic and spherical errors with PRK is a reasonable approach for pseudophakic refractive errors.
