Abstract Details

Purpose:

The high precision, predictability and reproducibility of a FLACS capsulotomy can be used for a new generation of capsulotomy fixated IOLs to eventually improve the visual outcome of lens surgery. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the visual and refractive outcomes as well as centration and tilt of a new capsulotomy fixated IOL (Oculentis) after FLACS.

Setting:

All FLACS (LensAR, Topcon) and follow-ups were performed at the Breyer-Kaymak-Klabe Eyesurgery in Duesseldorf, Germany, which is part of the International Vision Correcton Research Center (IVCRC.net).

Methods:

This prospective study comprises results after bilateral implantation of a new capsulotomy fixated IOL. Each eye was documented postoperatively 1-7 days, 4-6 weeks, 6 months and 12 months. Manifest refraction, visual acuity, IOL position (photography at slitlamp) and IOL tilt (measured with the Scheimpflug Tomography) were evaluated.

Results:

So far, 15 patients are actively enrolled in the study. The first 6 implantations have already been performed and the following ones are scheduled during the next 3 months.

Conclusions:

So far, only data of monofocal, capsulotomy fixated IOLs is available. The first results show a very well centering with no tilt over the first month. After adaption of the IOL calculation formula, an improvement in IOL calculation and residual refraction is to be expected.
