Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To evaluate the incidence of posterior capsule opacification after phacoemulsification with implantation of various types of IOLs of different materials and designs over a 12–month follow–up in our hospital. Methods: : This retrospective study comprised 352 patients (485 eyes). Acrysof SA60AT, Acrysof SA30AL, Acrysof MA60BM, Acrysof MA60AC (hydrophobic acrylic), Hydroview (H60M), Memory ( hydrophilic acrylic) IOLs were implanted. The patients were followed for a mean of approximately 1 year for the incidence and severity of PCO Results: At 13.46 months (average), 30.92% (150 IOLs) of the IOLs implanted had PCO that did not affect visual acuity. In the majority of cases (87%), opacification was observed at the edge of the IOL. The percentage of PCO was 23.89% in the MA60BM group(38 out of 159 IOLs), 20% in the MA60AC group (17 out of 85 IOLs), 37.36% in the SA30AL group(34 out of 91 IOLs), 30% in the SA60AT group (36 out of 110 IOLs), 65% in the Hydroview group (H60M, 13 out of 20 IOLs)), and 75% in the memory group(15 out of 20 IOLs). Conclusions: Posterior capsule opacification incidence was observed in 30.92% at a 13.46 (average) month follow–up in our hospital, not affecting visual acuity. The acrysof group was associated with less PCO.
