Purpose: To evaluate the clinical outcomes, safety, and efficacy of cataract surgery with the implantation of a toric intraocular lens (IOL) in eyes with stable pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD). Methods: Eleven eyes (eight patients) diagnosed as stable PMD and cataract underwent mini-incision 2.2 mm cataract surgery followed by the implantation of hydrophobic toric aspheric IOL (AcrySof IQ Toric IOL, Alcon, Fort Worth, TX, USA). Perioperative variables of interest included uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities, manifest refraction, and corneal topography. Paired samples t-tests were used to analyze preoperative and postoperative visual acuity, astigmatism, and spherical equivalent (SE) parameters. Follow-up was 6 months. Results: The mean CDVA was 0.62±0.26 logMAR preoperatively and 0.07±0.07 logMAR postoperatively. The mean preoperative sphere and cylinder was -3.14±3.58D and -4.84±2.02D, respectively. The mean postoperative manifest refractive sphere and cylinder was -0.30±0.51D and -0.81±1.51D, respectively. There was a significant reduction in refractive astigmatism after toric IOL implantation (P<0.002). The toric IOL axis rotation was <5° in all cases at the final follow-up. Conclusions: Implantation of hydrophobic toric IOL was a safe and effective surgical procedure to correct mild to moderate stable PMD.
