Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, and safety of myopic phakic posterior chamber Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) to correct unilateral high myopia in teen aged individuals.


Assiut University Hospital,Egypt


In a prospective, non comparative, interventional case series, outcomes in 15 high myopic eyes of 15 anisometropic patients with unilateral high myopia, their ages ranged from from 12.00 to 20.00 year (MeanSD 15.372.01),their spherical equivalent ranged from -11.0 to -20.0 diopters (MeanSD -16.252.87) were analyzed 6 months after implantation of myopic ICLs (STAAR Surgical).Preoperatively uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) ranged from 0.01 to 0.05( MeanSD 0.02300.0186).Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) ranged from 0.1 to 0.6 (MeanSD 0.46250.23).


All eyes gained better vision. Uncorrected visual acuity after ICL implantation ranged from 0.1 to 0.6 (MeanSD.35.2) Its improvement was highly significant (P=0.002). BCVA postoperatively ranged from 0.1 to 0.6 (MeanSD .45.23) .No complications were detected. Postoperative spherical equivalent refraction did not exceed -1.0 D of the desired refraction.


Myopic ICL implantation was a safe, effective, and predictable procedure for the correction of unilateral high myopia in anisometropic teen aged individuals.
