Further study details as provided by A-Yong Yu, Wenzhou Medical College:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The position of IOL [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Postoperatively, with the patient sitting upright,the position of IOL was assessed by slit lamp。Then ,We would calculate the rotation of IOL .

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • refraction astigmatism [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    We would like to evaluate the improvement of refraction astigmatism after surgery.

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: March 2011
Study Completion Date: May 2012
Primary Completion Date: May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Cataract Surgery
    Take the operation of phacoemulsification and implant the AcrySof Toric intraocular lens into the capsular bag in high myopic subjects.
    Other Name: refractive lens exchange surgery
Detailed Description:
According to numerous estimations, 15% to 29% of patients with cataract have≥1.5 diopters (D) of refractive astigmatism. New toric IOL designs (Acrysof © toric IOL; Alcon), approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at the end of 2005, have been found to be more stable and safety in the capsular bag in subjects with normal axis length of eye. Then,this study aims at the confirmation of the stability of The AcrySof Toric intraocular lens in the bag in high myopic subjects.Then we may find a more effective treatment for the high myopic patients with complicated cataract and sever cornea astigmatism .
