Abstract Details


To evaluate the long-term (> 5 years) safety and efficacy of the Artiflex phakic intraocular lens (PIOL; Ophtec, Groningen, The Netherlands)


Single center evaluation ( SU Yonesei Eye Clinic )


A retrospective analysis was performed on patients with a minimal follow-up of 5 years after implantation of a phakic Artiflex IOL. The main outcome parameters were refractive stability, UDVA, CDVA and endothelial cell count (ECC).


Data from 87 eyes from 45 patients with a minimal follow-up of 5 years (average of 5.8 years) was analyzed. The Artiflex provided good refractive stability over time. The mean refraction at 1M was -0.09 �Â�± 0.35 D, at the last follow-up the refraction was -0.26 �Â�± 0.33 D. The mean UCVA at the last follow-up was -0.03 �Â�± 0.10 logMAR, the mean CDVA was -0.07 �Â�± 0.08 logMAR. The mean ECC changed from 2961 cells / mm2 pre-operative to 2743 cells/ mm2 at the last follow-up, the average cell loss was 7.4%.


The long-term follow-up of the Artiflex PIOL for the patients with adequate anterior chamber depth showed a high refractive stability over time with excellent safety and efficacy scores and acceptable levels of ECC loss.
