Abstract Details



Purpose:

To describe the refractive outcomes of phakic posterior chamber ICL implantation.

Setting:

Depatment of Cornea and Refractive Surgery, Institute of Ophthalmology, Mexico City, Mexico

Methods:

Cohort study. All patients before 2005 were treated with spheric model. After 2005 received toric and spheric models as needed for correction of astigmatic error.

Results:

349 eyes with mean follow-up 47ḟ31 months (3 to 127). Mean age 29ḟ6.7 years. Paired t-test was used. Preoperative spherical equivalent -11.6ḟ5.12 D (+7.875 to -25.625), postoperative -0.52ḟ1.03 (+2.25 to -6.75) p<0.001. Preoperative UDVA 1.72ḟ0.49 (20/1050 Snellen), postoperative 0.23ḟ0.22 (20/34 Snellen) p<0.001. 7 eyes presented complications (2%), most solved favourably.

Conclusions:

While complications can occur, ICL surgery is a safe and effective refractive procedure.
