Abstract Details



Purpose:

To assess the safety, efficacy, predictability, and refractive outcome of implanting Ophtec Artiflex Toric phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs) in a patient with biomechanically suspected and thin cornea

Setting:

Grupo Medicina Avanzada , Barcelona ,Spain

Methods:

The FFKC patient underwent bilateral simultaneous foldable Toric PIOL implantation. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA), refraction, corneal tomography and biomecanical findings, adverse events, and postoperative complications were noted.

Results:

No intraoperative or postoperative complications were observed. An improvement in UCVA and BSCVA was found after Artiflex Toric Phakic IOL procedures in both eyes. No needs for Toric Phakic IOL resposicioning were observed.

Conclusions:

The implantation of iris-fixated Toric PIOLs in patients with FFKC or biomechanically suspected cornea for correction of astigmatism and myopia is safe, predictable, and effective. Due to the progressive nature of keratoconus, proper patient counseling is necessary
