Summary: Surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) is an important factor which causes reduction in uncorrected visual acuity and makes it necessary to use refractive correction, increases time of visual rehabilitation and thus reduces patient satisfaction. Much interest in the problem of SIA has resulted in creating special methods for SIA evaluation, as well as many publications worldwide.
In the study vectorial method for SIA calculation was described. According to the literature this is the mathematical method most frequently used in to calculate surgically induced astigmatism. Moreover, some examples of practical application of this method were shown.
