Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography of Long-Term Phakic Angle-Supported Intraocular Lenses – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the long-term age-related anterior chamber changes by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and the impact of such changes on the stability and behavior of angle-supported phakic intraocular lenses (IOLs).Design: A retrospective consecutive observational cohort study.Methods: A total of 23 eyes with high myopia implanted with an angle-supported phakic IOL between 1990 and 1996 at Vissum Corporación Oftalmológica de Alicante were included in the study. Patients were evaluated using OCT. Anterior chamber depth, anterior chamber width, crystalline lens rise, and the distance between phakic IOL and endothelium were measured.Results: Fifteen years after implantation, anterior chamber depth was (Read more...)
