Effect of axis orientation on visual performance in astigmatic eyes
Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, 08/02/2012
Kobashi H et al. – Eyes with oblique (OBL) astigmatism had significantly lower visual performance than eyes with with–the–rule (WTR) or against–the–rule (ATR) astigmatism. Correcting the preexisting astigmatism to acquire excellent visual outcomes may be necessary, especially in eyes with OBL astigmatism.
