To measure the vault of the ICL by UBM, evaluate the exact position and analyze the relationship between the phakic lens and the anatomic structures of the anterior chamber.
We included 10 patients, they where evaluated whit UBM preoperation and 1 and 3 months postoperation. The anterior chamber depth, the vault, angle and location where evaluated.
The average age 28.5 years old, toric ICL implantation in 4 patients, the average preopetarion anterior chamber depth was 3.23 mm, the angle 35.9°, at the first month the anterior chamber depth was 2.30 mm, the angle 20° the vault 564 microns, 100% of the ICL in the sulcus.
The phakic ICL lens is localize in the sulcus, with a safe distance between the crystalline lens and the ICL, we observe diminution of the anterior chamber depth and angle. We recommend the close observation of the IOP and permeability of iridectomies to prevent long term complications.
