Abstract Details


To evaluate the safety and efficacy duringn1-year follow-up of implantable collamer lens (ICL) to correct high anisometropia in amblyopic children who were non-compliant with spectacles or contact lenses


Alex eye center,Alexandria,Egypt


Retrospective study of 12 eyes of 12 children with high anisometropia who underwent ICL implantation (phakic posterior chamber IOL). Patient age at the time of implantation ranged from 2 to 10 years .preoperative specular microscopy,IOL master and white to white measurement were one in all cases


preoperative spherical equivalent refraction was -10 diopters (D) . Mean logMAR uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA)was .03 and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) was .3.occlusion therapy was done after surgery in all cases UCVA and CDVA improved in all children. At 12 months, logMAR UCVA and CDVA were .5 and 0.7 respectively (P=.01). Improvement of more than three logMAR lines of CDVA was achieved in all children . No loss of CDVA was detected in any patient.


ICL is a safe and effective treatment option for childhood anisometropic amblyopia
