Anterior chamber lens can be replaced with glued IOL in complicated eyes

December 22, 2014

For the past 2 decades, anterior chamber IOLs have been an established method of IOL implantation in eyes with deficient capsules either as a primary or secondary procedure. Anterior chamber IOLs are preferred over sulcus-sutured IOLs because they are technically easier to implant, are reasonably well-tolerated, and have a low rate of postoperative IOL decentration or tilt. However, anterior chamber IOLs have also become one of the causes of IOL exchange and explantation.

Implant-related problems such as discrepancies between anterior chamber biometry and IOL size may cause pseudophakodonesis in the aqueous, resulting in progressive endothelial cell loss. Infrequently, anterior chamber IOL-iris contact may lead to pigment dispersion with subsequent inflammation.
