How does the toric calculator differ in the Consultant as compared to the Alcon toric calculator? I notice some differences between the two.

Please read this PDF file especially the section on TORIC CALCULATORS. Our program, HICSOAP, is the most accurate toric calculator to date. The Total Surgically Induced Astigmatism depends on at least 7 variables. The IOL Consultant Software accounts for all 7. The most recent version also allows the incision to be placed anywhere (not only temporally).
