Abstract Details



Purpose:

The aim of this study was to compare the capsular performance and intensity of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) of the EyeCee One intraocular lens (IOL) (Nidek Co., Aichi, Japan) with the Acrysof SN60WF IOL (Alcon, Fort Worth, Texas).

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University of Vienna.

Methods:

This prospective, randomized study comprised 160 eyes of 80 patients. Each patient randomly received an EyeCee One IOL in one eye and an Acrysof SN60WF IOL in the contralateral eye. To date follow-up examinations one week and 6 months after surgery could be completed. Capsular bag performance (slitlamp examination, IOL decentration and tilt, fibrosis) as well as the amount of posterior capsule opacification (objectively evaluated via digital retroillumination images and Automated Quantification of After-Cataract [AQUA]) was assessed.

Results:

Both IOLs showed comparable results regarding IOL decentration and tilt, fibrosis and slitlamp examination. There was no significant difference in objective PCO score for both IOLs (p = 0.06). The Acrysof SN60WF IOL showed significant more glistenings than the EyeCee One IOL (48.4% vs. 18.8%, p<0.01).

Conclusions:

Both hydrophobic acrylic IOLs show good capsular bag performance and low PCO rates. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
