Ultrasound biomicroscopy demonstrates reliability of glued IOL technique
Glued transscleral-fixated posterior chamber IOLs did not cause significant IOL optic tilt affecting postoperative vision, according to a study.
The case series included 46 eyes of 42 patients examined with ultrasound biomicroscopy to evaluate inadequate capsule support of glued transscleral-fixated PC-IOLs. Mean postoperative follow-up was 24.6 months.
No significant correlation was seen between ocular residual astigmatism and IOL position or optic tilt and postoperative vision or cylinder, according to the authors.
