Abstract Details


To present first results after implantation of Scharioth Macula Lens (SML) in patients with advanced AMD.


Aurelios Augenzentrum Recklinghausen, Germany


Implantation of SML (A45AMD, Medicontur, Hungary) in pseudophakic eyes and advaced AMD. Preoperative BCDVA, BCNVA at 40 cm and 15cm, postoperative BCDVA, BUCNVA at 15cm were recorded.


SML implantation was uneventfull in all cases. BCDVA was same pre- and postoperative, while BCNVA improved 4 lines (40 cm with +2.0D vs. SML at 15 cm) and 2 lines (15 cm with +6.0D vs SML at 15 cm).


Scharioth Macula Lens has the potential to improve near visual acuity in patients with advanced AMD.
