Marking the incisional and desired axis of IOL alignment can be accomplished using the Cionni Toric Axis Marker (ref:9-841). The line on the top portion of the marker is rotated to set the blades to the desired meridian for the incision or IOL axis. The two blades on the underside of the Axis Marker are then coated with a marking pen and the limbus dried with a sponge. The Axis Marker is then positioned over the eye, lining up the holes at the horizontal and vertical meridians with the previously made limbal reference marks. The Axis Marker is then lowered to touch the eye so that the blades make the desired marks on the limbus.
