Accommodative intraocular lenses: where are we and where we are going
Intraocular lens - Wikipedia
Purpose: To report the results of a technique of sutureless intrascleral fixation of a three-piece foldable hydrophobic acrylic posterior chamber intraocular lens PC IOL in the absence of capsular support and to compare our results to those reported in the literature. PCIOL using permanent incarceration of the haptics in scleral tunnels parallel to the limbus, between November and November All patients were evaluated for surgical indications, pre- and postoperative refractive status visual acuity and corneal cylinder , and intra- and postoperative complications. Results: We included six men and three women with post-traumatic subluxed IOL's in three cases and lack of iris and capsular support secondary to traumatic corneoscleral wounds in six cases.
IOL Survey: New lenses turn surgeons’ heads
Methods: A literature search of the PubMed database was performed to identify all articles related to ICL complications. Articles were obtained and reviewed to identify those that reported complications using the latest ICL designs. Results: Cataract was the major postoperative complication reported: 5.
Our surgery center has been working extensively with this new lens, and the results have been favorable so far. As with all multifocal IOLs, the PanOptix does involve trade-offs, and your patient must be realistic about what this lens can deliver. However, it also brings some new features not available in other lenses. This article discusses the new lens design, how to identify good and bad candidates, how it compares with other lenses and post-op tips. The PanOptix is an ultraviolet-filtering, foldable, one-piece lens.
