Abstract Details


Evaluation of implantation behavior of the following preloaded IOLs using corresponding IOL delivery systems : Alcon AcrySof IQ IOL using Acrysert C injector, Hoya 1 piece IOL using its injector system, & Zeiss CT Lucia IOL using its injector system.


Anand Eye Hospital, Jaipur, India


150 eyes of 150 patients were operated for cataract via phacoemulsification and implanted with one of the following preloaded IOLs : Alcon AcrySof IQ using acrysert C injector, Hoya 1 piece IOL using iSert251 injector system, & Zeiss CT Lucia using ACCUJET injector system; 50 in each category.


Hoya IOL delivery system was concluded to be superior in terms of highest predictability and least complications with the most cases of smooth passage of IOL through the cartridge and very few cases of sleeve override.Alcon AcrySof IQ IOL delivery system was associated with most complications,adhesions between optic and haptic,overshoot, long unfolding time and sleeve override. It required the highest amount of manipulation to set the IOL in the bag. The only major disadvantage with Zeiss CT Lucia IOL was the excessive force required to release the IOL toward the end in most case,which increased the implantation time


All intraocular lenses could be implanted without major complications. No damage to optics or haptics due to the implantation process occurred.
