Abstract Details


To evaluate safety and efficacy of Y intrascleral haptic fixation technique in cases of poor or no capsular support.


Ophthalmology Department, Flor Ferenc Hospital, Kistarcsa, Hungary


Retrospective evaluation of six cases of poor or no capsular support were operated between September 2014 and December 2015. Y-fixation technique were used for intrascleral haptic fixation. Preoperative and postoperative refraction, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and postoperative complications were recorded.


Three cases of traumatic subluxated cataract and three cases of aphakia after complicated cataract surgery were operated. Mean preoperative refraction were +7,9 diopter (between 0 and +13,0 diopters), mean preoperative BCVA 0,54 (0,04-1,0), mean postoperative refraction were -1,16 diopters cylinder (-5,0 – 0), mean postoperative BCVA were 0,65 (0,15-1,0). Postoperative complications were secondary glaucom (4 cases), macular oedema (2 cases). Branch retinal venous occlusion were noted during postoperative period in one case.


Although Y-fixation technique is simpler than other scleral haptic fixation techniques thorough follow up is needed to avoid visual loss caused by late postoperative complications.
