Abstract Details


To compare postoperative visual function after implantable collamer lens (ICL; STAAR Surgical, Nidau, Switzerland) implantation and after customized laser in situ keratomileusis (C-LASIK) in eyes with moderate to high myopia.


: Anand eye hospital,Jaipur,India


Single centric prospective study.We investigated 50 eyes of 30 patients undergoing ICL implantation and 50 eyes of 25 patients undergoing C-LASIK for the correction of moderate to high myopia (manifest spherical equivalent - 6 to -14 diopters).Subjective and objective measures, contrast sensitivity (CS) function and complications were measured over a period of 1 year. Outcome measures also included safety,efficacy and predictability of the procedure.Data analysed using SPSS, anova, t test.


UCVA in both group in high refractive error was equal in initial 3 month (p>0.05), whereas contrast sensitivity was better in ICL group (p

ICL implantation significantly improves contrast sensitivity and more stable and accurate refractive results and better patient satisfaction in moderate to high myopia group than LASIK.
