The article focuses on the alignment of toric lenses using a five-step process explained by Terry Kim at the Kiawah Eye meeting held in Kiawah Island, South Carolina from May 28 to 31, 2009. Kim details how he was able to place the lenses on the intended axis with viscoelastic buoying the lenses from behind. The viscoelastic was removed fro the behind the lens using an irrigation and aspiration tip.
