Abstract Details


To report long-term postoperative outcomes after secondary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation following infantile cataract surgery


Storm Eye Institute, Medical University of South Carolina, USA


Study population: Infants operated for congenital cataract before seven months of age. Exclusion criteria: Acquired cataract, congenital glaucoma, ROP and PFV stretching the ciliary process, <1 year follow-up after secondary IOL implantation (for postoperative outcome). We randomly selected one eye for statistical analysis in bilaterally implanted patients


49 Patients, 25 unilateral and 24 bilateral. Age at cataract surgery 1.7±1.2 months; age at IOL implantation 4.6±1.8 years; age at final follow up 9.1±2.4 years; follow-up after secondary IOL 4.8±2.8 years. 57.1% received secondary IOL because of difficulties with contact lens. Capsular bag fixation was achieved in 69.4%. No significance between age and site of IOL implantation (P=0.3). 37 eyes were analyzed for postoperative outcomes. After Secondary IOL, 1 eye was diagnosed as glaucoma suspect, 4 received glaucoma medical treatment, 2 had glaucoma surgery and 2 had surgery to clear the visual axis. 1 patient required IOL removal because of high myopia. Median VA at final follow-up was 20/55 for unilateral versus 20/40 for bilateral.


Secondary IOL in children is relatively safe procedure associated with low rates of postoperative complications
