Pathologic Comparison of Asymmetric or Sulcus Fixation of 3-Piece Intraocular Lenses with Square Versus Round Anterior Optic Edges – Corrected Proof

Objective: To evaluate the pathologic findings of 3-piece intraocular lenses (IOLs) with asymmetric or sulcus fixation in pseudophakic cadaver eyes, comparing IOLs with square or round edges on the anterior optic surface. Design: Comparative case series with pathology. Participants: A total of 661 pseudophakic cadaver eyes, obtained from eye banks within the United States, implanted with different IOLs. Methods: Anterior segment scanning of whole eyes with a high-frequency ultrasound system or high-resolution anterior segment magnetic resonance imaging followed by gross examination. Selected eyes were processed for complete histopathologic analysis. Main Outcome Measures: Findings from imaging, gross, and histopathologic evaluation that (Read more...)
