The results of the correction of postsurgery ametropia by implantation of additional intraocular lens (IOL) were presented. The study included two patients (2 eyes) with postsurgery ametropia of spherocylindrical nature. IOL implantation of additional Add-On Torica-sPB (HumanOptics AG/Dr. Schmidt Intraocularlinsen GmbH, Germany) was performed. During the period of patient management it was not registered any features of gadget dislocation or any other complications. Visual acuity improved in both cases.
