Abstract Details


To evaluate the development of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) and rates of Nd:YAG capsulotomy rates following implantation of two hydrophobic acrylic IOLs


Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University of Vienna.


This prospective, intraindividual, single-center trial included 73 patients with bilateral senile cataract who were randomly implanted with the iMics1 IOL (NY-60; HOYA Surgical Optics, Inc) in one eye and the EyeCee ONE -IOL (NS-60YG; NIDEK CO. LTD) in the fellow eye. Patients underwent autorefractometer, visual acuity testing, and slit lamp examination including evaluation of capsular bag performance and fundoscopy. Digital retroillumination images and Automated Quantification of After-Cataract (AQUA) analysis was used to quantify the occurrence of PCO.


At a mean follow-up of 18 ± 4 months, the Nd:YAG capsulotomy rate in the iMICS1 group was 6% compared to 0% in the EyeCee ONE group (p=0.031). The mean PCO score was 0.93 ± 1.02 in the EyeCee ONE group and 1.60 ± 1.29 in the iMICS1 group (p<0.01). The anterior capsule was distant from the anterior optic surface of the lens in 97.1% of EyeCee one eyes and 2.1% of iMICS1 eyes. There was no tight contact of the lens to the posterior capsule in 53.2% of EyeCee ONE eyes and 27.7% of iMICS1 eyes. Three-year data will be presented.


The mean PCO score and the Nd:YAG rate were significantly lower in eyes implanted with the EyeCee ONE IOL than in eyes implanted eyes with the iMICS1 IOL. Whether the separation of the anterior and posterior capsule observed with the EyeCee One might have a role in preventing PCO requires further analysis
