A look into the IOL space

Advances in the design and performance of intraocular lenses (IOLs) continue to be driven by demand for better outcomes, presbyopia correction and spectacle independence, alongside a better understanding of the dynamics of the crystalline lens, newer theories of accommodation and...

Biometry and IOL choice errors

In the next instalment of this series I focus on problems associated with biometry and intraocular lens (IOL) selection for cataract surgery. I have taken previous medicolegal cases I have dealt with and tried to extract some learning points and...

IOL effect on refraction

The authors aimed to evaluate the effect of age at primary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation on the rate of refractive growth during childhood. This was a retrospective study of 296 eyes of 219 patients. Forty-six met inclusion criteria; 28 unilateral...

RCT of IOL type

The optical performance of pseudophakic eyes were compared after implantation of spherical and aspheric IOLs in paediatric patients after cataract surgery. This randomised controlled trial included 40 eyes of 23 patients: 20 eyes in each group. Follow-up was over three...

Pentacam vs. IOL Master keratometry measurement in IOL power calculations

The IOL Master measures only the anterior corneal curvature and estimates the total corneal power by assuming a fixed relationship between the anterior and posterior corneal surface. The Pentacam measures both the anterior and posterior corneal surface and therefore calculates...

Visual performance of new multifocal IOL

Multifocal IOLs (MIOLs) keep evolving to try and get the best outcome in terms of vision and reduction of side-effects. This prospective interventional study was carried out on 34 eyes of 17 patients (11 women (65%) and six men (35%))...

IOL cataract surgery 7-24 months

The purpose of this study was to present the long-term outcome of IOLs in paediatric patients who received cataract surgery aged seven to <24 months. This was retrospective study with minimum follow-up of 12 months for 27 patients (28 eyes)....

Rotational stability of angle supported phakic IOL

The authors evaluate 50 eyes of 28 patients that underwent an angle fixated phakic intraocular lens (IOL) implantation (Acrysof Cachet). All eyes had moderate to high myopia (-5.25 to-19.63 dioptres) and IOL sizing was performed as per the manufacturer’s recommendation....

IOL tilt with air tamponade vs. salt solution

In this study the authors made a comparison of significant postoperative tilt of IOL with air tamponade as opposed to balanced salt solution, in the procedure of combined phaco with IOL and vitrectomy. Thirty-four patients were included into the analysis....

IOL cataract surgery in seven to 24 month olds

The purpose of this study was to present the long-term outcome of IOLs in paediatric patients who received cataract surgery aged seven to <24 months. This was retrospective study with minimum follow-up of 12 months for 27 patients (28 eyes)....

Aspheric toric IOL implantation and LRI in eyes with cataracts and astigmatism

This is a prospective study from a single unit to compare the visual outcome of aspheric toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) for management of coexisting age-related cataracts and astigmatism. Sixty eyes of 60 patients with...

Anterior and posterior capsular opacification with the Tecnis ZCBOO and AcrySof SA60AT IOL

This a randomised, controlled, prospective and double-blind study comparing the anterior capsular opacification (ACO) and posterior capsular opacification (PCO) outcomes with two types of single-piece hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lenses (IOL), and AcrySof SA60AT – Group A, and Tecnis ZCBOO –...
