Abstract Details

Purpose:

To determine safety and efficacy of a new intraocular implant, iolAMD Eyemax™, (London Eye Hospital Pharma, London, UK) in cataract patients with dry and stable wet age-related macular degeneration.

Setting:

Private Research Institute

Methods:

A prospective case series of 11 eyes (7 patients) who underwent standard phacoemulsification with Eyemax IOL implantation and have at least 3 months follow up. Outcomes were: visual acuity, intra- and postoperative complications.

Results:

Visual Acuity improved significantly in all patients, for both distance and near. All patients were left intentionally hyperopic to get additional magnification from spectacle correction. No intra or post-operative complications were recorded

Conclusions:

The Eyemax IOL implant shows promising results in improving vision in eyes with cataract and intermediate or advanced macular degeneration. Further studies are needed to confirm these preliminary results
