Abstract Details


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


Nethradhama Eye Hospital, Bangalore


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.


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.


: 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.
