Abstract Details


to compare outcome of refractive treatment for myopia with implantation of phakic intraocular lenses: rigid Artisan versus foldable Artiflex lenses


Isfahan Eye Research center, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences.


This prospective clinical study comprised 58 eyes of 29 patients. Eyes randomized to Artisan or Artiflex groups. In first group we had 34 eyes which implanted rigid Artisan phakic lens, and in second group 24 eyes implanted with foldable Artiflex phakic lenses. Patients followed at the 6 month post-op period regarding their refractive and visual outcome.


At first post-operative week spherical refractory error was -1.17 +/- 0.76 and -0.55 +/- 0.90 diopters in Artisan and Artiflex groups respectively (mean +/- standard deviation), P<0.05. Astigmatic error at first week was 1.60 +/- 0.55 and 0.80 +/-038 diopters for Artisan and Artiflex groups (P<0.05). The difference for spherical error was still significant until second post-op month and for astigmatic error until third post-op month. At sixth month exam spherical error was -0.66 +/-0.47 and -0.62 +/-0.62 diopters and astigmatic error was 0.74 +/- 033 and 0.64 +/- 027 in Artisan and Artiflex groups respective (P>0.05).


Refractive outcome is better in first and second post-operative months in Artiflex lens but six months after surgery there is no difference regarding refractive outcome between Artisan and Artiflex phakic lenses. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
