To evaluate endothelial cell loss 3 years after implantation of Acrysof Cachet phakic IOL
121 myopic eyes were implanted with Acrysof Cachet phakic IOL. Central endothelial cell count was evaluated before surgery, 3 months after surgery and yearly afterwards. Endothelial cell loss was correlated with rotation of the IOL, depth of anterior chamber and compression of the IOL.
The overall results showed an endothelial cell loss of 4% at 3 years follow-up. No correlation was found between endothelial cell loss and rotation of the IOL ,anterior chamber depth or compression of the IOL.
At 3 years follow-up Acrysof Cachet is safe for the endothelium as long as the correct inclusion criteria are followed
