Abstract Details


To report the 2-year refractive results and endothelial cell loss after iris-claw toric phakic intraocular lens (IOL) implantation to correct high astigmatism following deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK)


Augencentrum Koeln, Cologne, Germany


2 eyes of 2 patients underwent implantation of iris-claw toric phakic IOL (Ophtec BV, Groningen, the Netherlands). Outcome measures included the uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), endothelial cell loss and complications


Patients were followed up for 2 years postoperatively. The first eye achieved an UCVA and a CDVA of 0.1 LogMAR both, refraction was �â�ˆ�’1.00 D cylinder and the endothelial cell loss was 10.9%. The second eye achieved an UCVA of 0 LogMAR, a CDVA of -0.1 LogMAR, refraction was �.5, -1.50x70 and the endothelial cell loss was 5.9%. No complications occurred


Implantation of iris-claw toric phakic IOL offers good outcomes in carefully selected cases of previous DALK with high astigmatism. long-term follow-up is needed to determine the rate of endothelial cell loss
