Abstract Details



Purpose:

To present outcomes of second IOL implantation in psudophakic eyes for refractive error.

Setting:

Dept. of Ophthalmology, District Railway Hospital, Katowice, Poland, Dept. of Ophthalmology, St. Barbara Hospital, Sosnowiec, Poland

Methods:

17 patients with refractive errors after cataract surgery required correction. Errors ranged from patents +2,25D to -8,0D. There were 3 mistakes in IOL calculation (all in myopia), others myopic did not accept monovision. 2 patients had hypermetropic over correction. We final refraction and VA.

Results:

6 months after sulcus lens implantation all patients had refractive error from 0,0D to -0,37D. Induced astigmatism ranged from 0,25D to 0,67D. Mean VA for far was 0,97ḟ0,01. I one eye trancient IOP elevation was observed.

Conclusions:

Correction of postoperative refraction error with lenses implanted to the sulcus effectively reduces unaccepted by patient refractive result of primary surgery.
