NEUCHATEL, SWITZERLAND--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire)--The company Swiss Advanced Vision (SAV-IOL SA) has announced the launch of New Features for its Toric Calculator improving the overall calculation experience. For the first-time ever ophthalmologists will be able to use a web-based configurator to help defining the best incision location to minimize residual astigmatism post-surgery based on optical parameters of the patient. And this, for all type of lenses.

SAV-IOL Toric Calculator facilitates selection of toric intraocular lenses which help to correct astigmatism, a widespread eye condition that causes blurred vision, discomfort, and potential headaches.
Next to the unique Incision Location Optimization tool indicating at which incision angle the residual astigmatism becomes the lowest (based on biometry, keratometry, cylinder power and SIA amplitude), the PCA can now be included in the calculation which increases the post-operative predictability.
