Abstract Details

Purpose:

To study the feasibility of implantation and outcomes with a new design of posterior chamber capsular fixation IOL

Setting:

Nethradhama Eye Hospital, Bangalore

Methods:

20 eyes from 20 patients with mean age of 65 years, underwent implantation with the new IOL design after routine phacoemulsification in 14 eyes and femtolaser assisted cataract surgery in 6 eyes. The IOL is a hydrophilic, acrylic, foldable IOL with two extra PMMA haptics at 3 and 9 oclock positions, which can swivel over a pivot.After implantation into the bag, the swivel haptics were captured on to the anterior capsulotomy. The mean follow up was 6 months�Â�±12 days.

Results:

The mean power of the IOLs implanted was �.0 �Â�±0.7 D . The pre-operative mean spherical equivalent(SE) was -2.27 �Â�±0.9 D which reduced to -1.22�Â�±0.6 D at 6 months. The mean anterior chamber depth(ACD) measurements with IOL Master 700 were 4.33�Â�±0.33mm, 4.24 �Â�±0.19mm and 4.27�Â�±0.63mm at day 1, 2 weeks and 6 months post-operatively(p>0.05). The rotational stability of the lens was evaluated with serial clinical photographs till 6 months post operatively, and all IOLs were found to be stable with no change in the position of swivel haptics. 2 eyes showed minimal PCO at 6 months.

Conclusions:

: The new capsular fixation IOL was safe and easy to implant and appeared to maintain a stable position inside the eye potentially ensuring a stable effective lens position once fixated to the anterior capsulotomy. Other potential advantages may be �â�€�“ simple design, easy loading and insertion, no or minimal dysphotopsia, good stability on toric and multifocal platform and easy explantation of required.
