IOL power calculation accuracy in childhood cataract surgery

Refractive outcomes in eyes after vitrectomy vary as the timing of cataract surgery may influence the outcome when done as staged surgery after vitreoretinal (VR) surgery or at the same time as VR surgery. The authors aimed to determine the...

Suture-less flanged IOL fixation vs. conventional sutured SF in IOL dislocation

The authors report the analysis of a prospective, comparative cohort study on 103 consecutive patients (103 eyes) with intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation who underwent vitrectomy with IOL removal and sutured scleral fixation (SF) (53 eyes) or flanged IOL fixation (50...

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 –...

The IC-8 IOL an Aspheric Monofocal

Deliver the promise of a premium lens with the ease of a monofocal. The IC-8 IOL is an aspheric monofocal IOL embedded with an opaque annulus to extend the depth of focus from near to far without gaps in vision....

Dead bag syndrome: a new and rare cause of late IOL dislocation

The dead bag syndrome has recently been described as a cause of late spontaneous intraocular lens (IOL) subluxation and / or dislocation. The capsular bag remains clear years after surgery and then becomes diaphanous and floppy. The authors explanted seven...

Fifteen-year results of phakic artisan IOL for hyperopia correction

This retrospective review of a cohort of 61 eyes from 32 patients offers long-term results for phakic Artisan (Ophtec BV) iris-fixated phakic IOL (IF-pIOL). The mean age at surgery was 41.6 years with a range of 25-59 years. Refractive outcomes...

Iris chafing from displaced single-piece acrylic IOL

A 74-year-old man had persistent 3+ cell one month following left eye cataract extraction, complicated by anterior capsular rent and zonular dialysis at 7 o’clock, with single-piece acrylic intraocular lens implantation (IOL) in the capsular bag. Figure 1: Haptic-like transillumination...

Sequential scleral fixated IOL followed by DSAEK better than simultaneous approach

This prospective randomised comparative study compared a simultaneous approach of combined scleral-fixated intraocular lens (SF IOL) and Descemet-stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) compared to intrascleral haptic fixation technique, followed by DSAEK in a sequential fashion with an interval of at...

Newer generation IOL platforms designed for high-quality visual performance after cataract surgery

Expanding intraocular lens (IOL) capabilities provide broadening options, ranging from next-generation monofocal IOLs for basic cataract surgery, to specialised premium IOLs for lens-based presbyopia correction and astigmatism correction at the time of cataract surgery. Rod McNeil considers several newer alternative...

Effects of ‘inverted U method’ Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy on anterior segment and IOL tilt

The study aimed to investigate the effects of the ‘inverted U method’ Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy on anterior segment parameters, decentration and tilt of intraocular lens (IOLs) and visual acuity in 76 patients with posterior capsular opacification (PCO) after previous...

The David J Apple International Laboratory for Ocular Pathology – a legacy of pioneering IOL research

David Apple and Gerd Auffarth. The Apple Lab at the David J Apple Center for Vision Research in Heidelberg is a thriving international laboratory for research into intraocular devices. The lab continues the work of David J Apple, a world-renowned...
