Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, and safety of myopic phakic posterior chamber Implantable Contact Lens (ICL) to correct unilateral high myopia in teen aged individuals


Anisometropia, Implantable Contact Lens, Uncorrected visual acuity, Best corrected visual acuity, spherical equivalent Assiut University Hospital


: In a prospective, non comparative, interventional case series, outcomes in 8 high myopic eyes of 8 anisometropic patients with unilateral high myopia, their ages ranged from from 13.00 to 20.00 year (MeanSD 16.372.01),their spherical equivalent ranged from -12.0 to -19.0 diopters (MeanSD -15.252.87) were analyzed 6 months after implantation of myopic ICLs (STAAR Surgical).Preoperatively uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) ranged from 0.01 to 0.05( MeanSD 0.02250.0183).Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) ranged from 0.1 to 0.7 (MeanSD 0.46250.23). Myopic ICL implantation was performed through a temporal corneal incision.


All eyes gained better vision. Uncorrected visual acuity after ICL implantation ranged from 0.1 to 0.7 (MeanSD.35.2) Its improvement was highly significant (P=0.002). BCVA postoperatively ranged from 0.1 to 0.7 (MeanSD .45.23) . No complications were detected. Postoperative spherical equivalent refraction did not exceed -1.5 D of the desired refraction. Visual improvement was significantly better in contact lens wearer than others who did not use contact lenses (P < 0.000) vs (P < 0.001) respectively.


Myopic ICL implantation was a safe, effective, and predictable procedure for the correction of unilateral high myopia in anisometropic teen aged individuals.
