Abstract Details


To present the visual outcomes and IOLs stability after cataract surgery with foldable single piece IOLs in a patient with microcornea and posterior polar cataract.


Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.


A 28-year-old woman presented with bilateral microcornea and posterior polar cataract. Her preoperative BCVA was 20/80 in both eyes. The horizontal cornea diameter was 9.0mm bilaterally. Anterior chamber angle assessed with Scheie classification showed grade 2-3 in both eyes. Anterior chamber depth (ACD) obtained by OCT was 2.38 and 2.41mm. and the axial length measured with A-scan was 23.28 and 22.50mm. in the right and left eyes, respectively.


Phacoemulsification was firstly performed in the left eye. Posterior capsule was ruptured after lens aspiration. A foldable single piece IOLs was implanted in the sulcus without haptic trimming. BCVA at post-operative 1 month was 20/63 with good IOLs centration and normal IOP (10 mmHg). BCVA had been improving to 20/50 with no sign of pigment dispersion during 2 year-follow up. The IOP was also stable at 12 mmHg and ACD was 2.22 mm. Phacoemulsification with foldable single piece IOLs without haptic trimming was recently performed in the right. Postoperative BCVA was 20/63 with normal IOP.


The foldable single piece IOLs without haptic trimming in sulcus was safely implanted in eyes with microcornea.
