Abstract Details


To expose 3 cases with loss of stability in hidrofilic lenses fixed with prolene sutures.


Hospital ClĂ­nic. Barcelona Oftalmologia Consulting


3 patients come to office with subluxated hidrofilic iols. We reattached the iols with prolene 10.0 suture to the sulcus passing across two eyelets of the iols. In this 3 cases the suture pass across the material with the consequence of subluxation of the iol again.


All three cases must be reoperated and re-exange the iol by a pmma iol sutured to sulcus.


Hidrofilic iols will not be apropiate to suture in sulcus with prolene suture
