1,152 Possible Causes for Astigmatism, No Cataracts

  • Cataract

    Summary points Cataract is not always due to ageing Cataract symptoms vary depending on type of cataract and the patient's lifestyle and visual requirements Cataract surgery[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Corneal astigmatism of 1.00 D or greater was found in 344 eyes (27.9%), and 548 eyes (44.4%) had against-the-rule astigmatism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cataract and surgery for cataract Clinical Review BMJ 2006 ; 333 doi: (Published 13 July 2006) Cite this as: BMJ 2006;333:128 David Allen, consultant ophthalmologist (David.allen[doi.org]

  • Diabetic Cataract

    Various visual disturbances may be noted in diabetic cataract, and the diagnosis requires a slit-lamp examination.[symptoma.com] You can be fit with a regular intraocular lens, a special lens for astigmatism, or lens with a bifocal.[wilsoneyecenter.com] Some IOLs can also correct astigmatism. These choices were not always available for cataract patients.[rockvilleeye.com]

  • Posterior Subcapsular Cataract

    Posterior subcapsular cataract is a relatively common type of cataract which develops in the posterior capsule of the lens and causes visual impairment, especially while reading[symptoma.com] We assume that the astigmatic shift is due to cataract induced astigmatism (CIA) rather than to corneal changes.[bjo.bmj.com] Abstract Cataract is the leading cause of blindness and posterior subcapsular cataract (PSC) leads to significant visual impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glassblower's Cataract

    Glassblower's cataracts are a form of cataract.[en.wikipedia.org] In addition some astigmatism is expected as the healing process of an eye is an unknown factor and cannot be exactly predicted.[mehtaeyeinstitute.com] Exfoliation syndrome (See Pseudoexfoliation and cataract surgery ) B. Other type of cataract/traumatic cataract (See Traumatic cataract ) IV.[p2.aao.org]

  • Radiation-induced Cataract

    cataract, outside the zone; all risk factors for the development of cataract were considered: age, sex, diference in profession, duration of occupational exposure, years[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A study was initiated to examine the lenses of the eyes of astronauts/cosmonauts to detect signs of radiation-induced cataracts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Interventional cardiologists (ICs) are exposed to X-rays and may be at risk to develop cataract earlier than common senile cataract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pterygium

    Senile cataract included 14 eyes of immature cataract [Table - 2].[jpgmonline.com] The mean value for preoperative astigmatism was 2.12 1.09 diopter cylinder (DC) while that for postoperative astigmatism was 0.72 0.50 DC (P 0.000).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In our country both pterygium and cataract have a high incidence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Cataract

    Traumatic cataracts can be unilateral or bilateral.[symptoma.com] Serial  topography showed regular corneal astigmatism of -5.50 diopter (K 1 42.75 D @130 , K 2 48.25 D @40 ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (IOL) to correct the astigmatism.[karger.com]

  • Early-Onset Nuclear Cataract

    Homepage Rare diseases Search Search for a rare disease Early-onset nuclear cataract ORPHA:98991 Synonym(s): - Prevalence: - Inheritance: Autosomal dominant or Autosomal recessive[orpha.net] We assume that the astigmatic shift is due to cataract induced astigmatism (CIA) rather than to corneal changes.[bjo.bmj.com] Causes of presenile cataract. The term presenile cataract is used when the cataractous changes similar to senile cataract occur before 50 years of age.[ikeyes.blogspot.com]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    We report a family with hereditary cataract, which was initially classified as primary hereditary cataract.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, vision problems such as low acuity and astigmatism are common.[cancertherapyadvisor.com] ., Mark, T.L. (2003) Corneal astigmatism in applanation tonometry.[scindeks.ceon.rs]

  • Ectopia Lentis

    J Cataract Refract Surg. 2007 May. 33(5):819-24. [Medline]. Ectopia lentis. Dislocated traumatic lens (cataract). Ectopia lentis.[emedicine.com] Retinoscopy may reveal a significant refractive error, usually myopia and astigmatism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lensectomy/vitrectomy was performed in 2 patients, in case of high astigmatism ( 5.00 D) and/or the lens border visible in the pupillary area.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
