Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate visual and refractive outcome and complications after microincision cataract surgery (MICS) with implantation of an Incise intraocular lenses (IOLs).

Setting:

Pomeranian Medical University, Szczecin

Methods:

This study comprised 40 eyes of 20 patients having bilateral microincision cataract surgery. Bimanual MICS was performed according to Alio procedure. The IOLs were implanted through a mean 1.4 clear corneal incision. The final size of the clear corneal incision, postoperative uncorrected and best corrected distance visual acuity, best corrected near visual acuity (logMAR), astigmatism, complications and patient satisfaction were analyzed. The follow up was 3 months.

Results:

The Incise lens was implanted through mean incision 1,4mm.Three months after surgery the mean uncorrected/corrected distance visual acuity (UCVA)/(BCVA) was better than 0.3/0.1, subsequently and the best corrected near visual acuity (BCNVA) were better than 0.2. Three months after surgery, there was not significant increase of corneal astigmatism.There were no serious intraoperative and postoperative complications. All the patients were highly satisfied with the quality of the vision.

Conclusions:

Our preliminary results show that MICS with Incise lens implantation is safe and effective procedure. This conclusion has to be confirmed by studies with longer follow up period and larger series of patients. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
