Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of phakic posterior chamber implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP).

Setting:

All surgeries were done in Yemen Magrabi Hospital.

Methods:

In a retrospective interventional cases series, outcomes in 6 eyes that had penetrating keratoplasty of 6 patients, myopia from -3.00 to -7.00 diopters (D) and astigmatism from -0.50 to -6.00 were analysed after implantation of myopic ICLs (STAAR Surgical). Myopic ICL implantation was performed through a corneal incision in the steepest meridian.

Results:

No eye developed complication. No eyes lost lines of visual acuity. All eyes showed uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) > 20/50.

Conclusions:

Phakic intraocular Collamer lens is a viable treatment for myopia and myopic astigmatism after PKP. It reduced the refractive astigmatism and ametropia.
