Abstract Details



Purpose:

To present a case of cataract surgery performed in a patient with a refractive corneal inlay in place.

Setting:

Institute of Vision and Optics (IVO), University of Crete, Heraklion, Crete

Methods:

A 48-year-old woman presented at our Institute with history of bilateral cataract. The patient had undergone refractive corneal inlay (Presbia MicrolensTM) implantation in her nondominant eye for presbyopia, three years ago. Biometry and intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation were performed without removing the inlay. Phacoemulsification and IOL insertion were carried out in both eyes in a usual manner.

Results:

On day one postoperatively, the patient achieved binocular uncorrected distance visual acuity 10/10 and uncorrected near visual acuity J1. The vision remained stable during the one year follow-up period.

Conclusions:

Cataract surgery can safely be performed in patients with Presbia MicrolensTM corneal inlay. Biometry readings seem to be reliable and IOL power calculation accurate with the refractive inlay in place. The Presbia MicrolensTM seems to be safe and efficient method for near vision correction in pseudophakic patients. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
