Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate the visual outcomes after implantation of an angle- supported anterior chamber phakic lens (Alcon AcrySof Cachet) in myopic eyes with astigmatism higher than 0,50 D and lower than 2,00 D.

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology at Centro Hospitalar Baixo Vouga.

Methods:

Observational study of 25 myopic eyes with astigmatism higher than 0,50 D and lower than 2,00 D. Phakic IOLs were implanted by the same surgeon in topical anesthesia. Outcomes of uncorrected and best-corrected visual acuities were evaluated 1 day, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after surgery.

Results:

Significant improvement in uncorrected distance visual acuities were found postoperatively, with significant reduction in spherical equivalent (p?
Conclusions:

The implantation of the Alcon AcrySof Cachet IOL is an effective method for the correction of moderate to high myopia in eyes with astigmatism higher than 0,50 D and lower than 2,00 D.
