Abstract Details


To assess the efficacy, visual acuity (VA) and complications of iris suture fixation of posterior chamber lens in the absence of capsular support


Eye Clinic Day Hospital São Paulo, SP, Brazil


Thirty eyes of 27 patients who underwent iris suture fixation of posterior chamber lens were analysed retrospectively between January 2006 and July 2014 at the Eye Clinic Day Hospital São Paulo, Brazil. Preoperative data included best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), postoperative outcomes included cystoid macular edema (CME), retinal detachment, dislocated intraocular lens and best corrected visual acuity.


Thirty eyes were analysed. The mean follow-up was 8.6 months (range:3-20 months). In 21 eyes (70%) BCVA improved, in 3 eyes (6.6%) it remained unchanged and in 6 eyes (13.3%) showed a decreased visual acuity. In this series 2 (6.6%) eyes presented cystoid macular edema, 2 eyes (6.6%) dislocated intraocular lens and none presented retinal detachment.


In this series, iris suture fixation showed to provide safe and effective results in the treatment of patients without capsular support.
