Abstract Details


To evaluate the preloaded CT Asphina 509/MD system from Carl Zeiss Meditec , in term of safety, easy of insertion and post operative results.


: The Dr Solomatin eye center and the Latvian university ophthalmology department


Prospective study of 70 eyes, implanted with CT Asphina preloaded hydrophile IOL with hydophobic surface, during phacoemulsification cataract surgery after a period of one year from August 2011 to July 2012. All patient were between 50-80 years old.


All 70 eyes had smooth assembly of insertion system and intra-bag insertion of IOL. IOL’s had an excellent centration during all follow-up period. 12 month post-operatively, the UDVA (Snellen lines) was 1.0 or better in 65 eyes (92%).The CDVA improved by 1 line in 54 eyes (77%) and by 2 lines in 3 eyes (4%). Neither of operating eyes lost the lines. All eyes were within +/- 0,5 of the target refraction. There were no serious complications during follow-up period.


After a short time follow-up, preloaded CT Asphina IOL implantation was effective, predictable, stable and safe for correction of cataract problems.
