Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the implantation of the accommodating IOL (Humanoptics, Germany) implanted following clear-cornea phacoemulsification. Methods: 12 eyes, underwent phacoemulsification through 2.75 clear cornea incision and IOL implantation with the Humanoptics accommodating IOL. This IOL is made from hydrophilic-acrylic, in a one-piece, 4 flexible-haptic design. We evaluated pre- and post-operative Visual acuity, IOP, endothelial cell count, accommodating index. Mean follow-up was 5-9 months (7) Results: Mean values:UCVA improved from 20/150 to 20/35 at distance and from J7 to J2 at near, IOP from 17.5 to 14.6 mmHg, ECC from 2150 to 2020. The mean post-op accommodating index was +1.5D (+1.0 to +2.5 diopters) No complications were noted in this limited group. Conclusion: The implantation of the accommodation IOL following routine cataract extraction may be a safe and effective method of significant post-operative accommodation and reduction in refraction-corrective dependency.
