Abstract Details


To analyze the results of phacoemulsification and posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) implantation in patients with Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis.


Department of Ophthalmology, Haydarpasa Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.


This retrospective nonrandomized interventional study comprised 53 patients(38 male,15 female) who were operated at our clinics between December 2010 and April 2014.They had phacoemulsification within-the-bag IOL implantation in all patients. Preoperative and postoperative visual acuities, intraocular pressure,ocular inflammation and intraoperative and postoperative complications were evaluated.


The patients; mean age 37.7 ± 8(range 23 to 50) years. Patients were followed for 30.8 ± 17.6 months. At the final visit, the best corrected visual acuity was 20/40 or better in all eyes. The main cause of postoperative visual acuity less than 20/20 was vitreous haze. Thirtteen eyes (24.4%) preoperatively and 1 eyes (1.9%) postoperatively had elevated intraocular pressure. Clinically detected cystoid macular edema developed in no eyes. Postoperatively, mild anterior chamber reaction occurred in 27 eyes (50.9%), IOL deposits occurred in only 1 eyes (1.9%). During follow-up, 27 eyes (13%) developed posterior capsule opacification .


Cataract surgery with PC IOL implantation in patients with Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis resulted in good visual outcomes. Postoperative inflammation was mild and developed in all cases.
