Abstract: Cataract surgery has seen many advancements - couching to micro phacoemulsification and the recently developed femtosecond LASER assisted cataract surgery. We conducted a study to compare surgically induced astigmatism in small incision cataract surgery, superior scleral tunnel incision versus temporal clear corneal incision. The difference in the mean surgically induced astigmatism in both the types of incision is significant, temporal being better i. e. causing less surgically induced astigmatism.
