Abstract Details


To compare visual outcomes of two posterior chamber Phakic intraocular lenses (PCPIL)


Vision Next Eye Care, Pune, India


20 eyes of 10 patients with refractive error were included in study. Mean manifest refraction spherical equivalent (MRSE) was -13.55 ±4.15 Diopters (D).10 eyes underwent Implantable collamer lens (ICL, STAAR) implantation and 10 eyes underwent Implantable Phakic contact lens (IPCL, Care group) . The postoperative changes in visual acuity, MRSE, IOP, vault height between the two kinds of PCPIL were compared. The follow up period was 3 months.


There were no statistically significant differences in the postoperative changes of uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA, p=0.91), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA, p = 0.60), MRSE (p=0.2), IOP (p= 0.18), vault height (p=0.12) between the groups


There were no significant differences between the outcomes of these PCPIL; although larger sample sized and larger follow-up studies are required to authenticate the outcomes.
