Abstract Details


To evaluate the clinical results of the Artisan iris-fixated intraocular lens (IOL) in a long time follow up study.


Sungmo eye hospital, Busan, Korea.


Twenty eyes of 20 patients underwent Artisan implantation between December 2012 and February 2014 and were followed up for more than 3 months. The study prospectively analyzed the efficacy, safety and predictability of Artisan implantation based on visual acuity and refractive errors.


Iris-claw aphakic IOLs were inserted during an IOL exchange procedure for dislocated posterior chaber IOLs in 19 eyes (99.5%) and as a secondary procedure in 1 eye (0.05%). Mean uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) and best corrected visual acuity (CDVA) improved significantly after surgery. UDVA was 20/40 or better in 75% of eyes and 20/25 or better in 55%. CDVA was 20/40 or better in 85% of eyes and 20/25 or better in 75%. The mean spherical equivalent (SE) after surgery was 0.38±1.04 diopters (D) and the SE at the last follow-up was within ±1.00 (D) of the targe refraction in 18 eyes (90%). The mean endothelial cell loss and high intraouclar pressure were observed only in one patient. No other serious complications occurred.


Because of its good visual results and rare complications, the Artisan implantation may be an effective surgical procedure for patients. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
