Abstract Details


To describe 12 cases associated with Medennium posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (MPL) implantation for correction of consecutive hyperopia after previously performed radial keratotomy (RK).


“Blue Eye” Centro di Chirurgia Oculare, Milano, Italy, “International Center for Ophthalmology”, Moscow, Russia


We reviewed 12 eyes (6 patients) with RK incisions undergoing MPL implantation. Bilateral RK was performed 21-26 years ago. Refractive errors ranged from +4.25 to +6.0 diopters (D). The mean follow-up period was 15.16±8.44 months. Autorefractometry, uncorrected distance visual acuity (UCVA), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), optical biometry, intraocular pressure (IOP), OCT Visante, corneal endothelial cell (CEC) loss were measured.


The mean SE changed from +5.75±3.21D to +0.42±0.82D. The UCVA improved from 1.0±0.29 (log MAR) to 0.16±0.15. BCVA changed from 0.16±0.25 to 0.11±0.16. The mean distance between Crystalline lens and MPL was 382,44±91 µm. No statistically CEC induced by the MRL implantation. No cataract, glaucoma, inflammation or progressive hyperopic shift was observed.


MPL implantation may be an alternative surgical option for the correction of hyperopia after RK.
