Abstract Details


To study the outcome of Hoya preloaded acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in children.


Tertiary Eye Care Centre


All children underwent phacoaspiration with primary posterior capsulotomy, anterior vitrectomy and primary IOL implantation through a 2.8 mm incision. In all cases IOL was attempted to be implanted into the capsular bag. Parameters noted were ease of implantation, synechie formation, IOL deposits, decentration of IOL, visual axis obscuration(VAO), haptic compression and ovalling of rhexis. Besides any intra operative complications related to IOL were also recorded.


This retrospective case review comprised 58 eyes of 38 patients with congenital cataract who underwent implantation of Hoya acrylic IOL. Mean age of the patients was 3.27 years + 2.69 years (range 3 months to 8 years). Mean follow up of 24.5 + 9.13 months. VAO occurred in 6.9% eyes,posterior synechiae in 5 eyes, IOL deposits in 6 eyes, haptic compression in 3 eyes and IOL decentration in 1 eye (1.72%).


Our data suggests that implantation of the hoya clear hydrophobic acrylic IOL is safe option in children undergoing cataract surgery.
