Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy, safety and stability of posterior chamber implantable collamer lens (ICL) implantation for the correction of high myopia.


Ophthalmology Dept, Menoufyia University, Egypt


34 eyes of 18 patients with high myopia (between-11.0 and-24 diopters) had a posterior chamber ICL (Staar ICL) implanted. During 6-36 monthsÂ’ follow-up, visual acuity, refraction, intraocular pressure (IOP), corneal reaction and space between crystalline lens and intraocular lens (ICLs) were tested.


Successful implantation was achieved in all patients. Visual acuity without correction greater than 0.5 was found in 32 eyes at 1 day and 3 months postoperatively. The mean BCVA was 0.8 or more in 27 eyes, 0.5 in 5 eyes in the first day. At 1 month the mean BCVA was 0.8 or more in 29 eyes, 0.5 in 3 eyes. During 6-36 monthsÂ’ follow-up, refraction was stable and no corneal edema or glaucoma were found. Postoperative anterior uvietis developed in one case and resolved in two weeks. Cataractogenesis under anterior capsular membrane developed in 2 eyes at 12 months postoperatively.


ICL implantation was a safe, effective and predictable refractive surgical option in the management of high myopia. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
