Intraocular Optical Quality of Phakic Intraocular Lenses: Comparison of Angle-Supported, Iris-Fixated, and Posterior Chamber Lenses – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate internal aberrometric profiles following phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) implantation.Design: Retrospective and consecutive case series.Methods: One hundred and five eyes of 65 patients were included. The optical aberrations were measured with the Topcon KR-1W aberrometer. Comparisons of internal aberrations for different models were made. Comparisons at 4 and 6 mm were made also within the same model for all the lenses. Comparisons regarding the implantation site were also performed: angle-supported (AS) anterior chamber (AC) (n = 47), iris-fixated (IF) (n = 27), and posterior chamber (PC) (n = 31).Results: Root mean square (RMS) of internal optical higher-order aberrations (HOAs) changed significantly to (Read more...)
