To evaluate results and complications of biocompatible collagen copolymer implantable contact lenses over 4 years.
B B Eye Foundation, Kolkata, India
176 eyes out of 106 patients underwent ICL implantations. Toric ICLs was implanted in 148 eyes and Spheric ICL in 28 eyes. The patients were seen on day 1, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months and 6 monthly.
At 4 years, 150 eyes (85%) had visual acuity within 0.5 D and 162 eyes (92%) within 1.0 D of intended correction. 2 cases of anterior subcapsular cataract were seen, one eye had hyphaema which reduced conservatively, 7 eyes had transient IOP increase as steroid responders.
Phakic posterior chamber lenses provide safe and stable visual results. Complications need to be treated early to prevent visual loss.
