Annotation:

The article covers the problem of the correction of corneal astigmatism with the use of limbal relaxing incisions during cataract operations. The case overview, comparison with other technologies, the features of pre-surgery preparation and procedures performing techniques were carried out. We reviewed operation and post-operation complications as well as possible mistakes during procedures performing.
