Dynamic Positional Change and Defocus Curve of a Phakic Foldable Anterior-Chamber Angle-Supported Intraocular Lens during Accommodation – Corrected Proof

Objective: To evaluate movements of an anterior-chamber angle-supported phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) Cachet (Alcon, Fort Worth, Texas) and their influence on visual acuity during accommodation. Design: Prospective case series. Participants: We included 54 eyes of 27 patients (15 female, 12 male; age, 38±7.61 years; preoperative manifest spherical equivalent −8.7±2.5 diopters [D]). Methods: Evaluation of the PIOL's positional stability (distance to the corneal endothelium [M1] and the natural lens [M2]) as well as the pre- and postoperative anterior chamber depth (ACD) and pupil diameter (PD). Measurements were performed for accommodation stimuli ranging from −7 to +1 D in 1-D increments using (Read more...)
