To evaluate the refractive outcomes of the patients following combined silicone oil removal, phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation surgery with preoperative biometry using IOL master.
Dokuz Eylul University, School of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology, Izmir, Turkey
Patients who underwent combined silicone oil removal, phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation surgery between June 2009 and January 2013 were included in the study retrospectively. Only the patients whose preoperative biometry measurements were performed with IOL master (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany) were enrolled in the study. SRK/T and Holladay 1 formulas were used for the calculation of the intraocular lens power. Postoperative refraction of each patient was evaluated as spherical equivalent at one month after the surgery.
A total of 40 eyes of 37 patients (19 males, 18 females) were included in the study. Mean age was 55.73 ±11.25 years (range, 19-77 years). Indications for the initial silicone oil surgery were rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in 38 eyes ( 95 % ) and tractional retinal detachment in 2 eyes ( 5 % ). One month after the combined silicone oil removal and cataract surgery, calculated spherical equivalent values were between -2.50 D to + 1.00 D in the all study group. Postoperative calculated spherical equivalent value was between -0.50 D to +0.50 D in 15 eyes (37.5%) and between -1.00 D to +1.00 D in 34 eyes ( 85% ).
IOL master is an useful device for the prediction of intraocular lens power in silicone oil filled eyes.
