Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate visual outcomes in complicated cataract surgery using Artisan iris-fixated intraocular lens (IOL).

Setting:

Hospital de Sabadell (CSPT), Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Sabadell, Barcelona, Spain.

Methods:

Observational retrospective study. Aphakic eyes underwent Artisan IOL implantation were assessed. Follow-up examinations were performed for 6 months including subjective refraction, uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA).

Results:

Twenty eyes of 20 patients underwent Artisan implantation between November 2012 and March 2014. Mean uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) and best corrected visual acuity (CDVA) improved significantly after surgery. 6 months postoperatively, UDVA was 20/40 or better in 50% of eyes and 20/25 or better in 20%. CDVA was 20/40 or better in 90% of eyes and 20/25 or better in 50%.

Conclusions:

Implantation of Artisan IOL improves visual outcomes in aphakic eyes due to complicated cataract surgery.
