Abstract

Purpose: : To report the follow-up of a series of patients implanted with the phakic STAAR ICL lens since 1996.

Methods: : Retrospective analysis of the clinical records of patients who were implanted with ICL phakic IOL between 1996 and 2010.

Results: : A total of 156 eyes of 105 Patients were included. The average age at surgery was 36 years and 57% were female. Follow up ranged from 1 to 163 months with a mean follow-up time of 52 months. The mean pre-op spherical equivalent (SE) was -13,37 in myopes, 5 eyes of 3 patients received ICL for hyperopic correction with a mean pre-op SE of 7,18. Mean Post op SE was -1,47 and -0,25 in the Myope and Hyperope groups respectively. The mean pre-op BCVA was 0,26 LogMAR and mean post-op BCVA was 0,06 LogMAR, with 87% gaining one or more lines of BCVA, 0,5% lost one or more lines of BCVA, and 12,5% maintained his BCVA. Adverse event included: Ocular hypertension in 5% of cases, lens opacification in 5% of cases, with only 2,5% of cases being clinically significant at 5 years. There were 2 cases of retinal detachment which represent the only 2 cases were the ICL had to be removed. 2 cases had persistent halos due to ICL displacement, they were replaced with no further complications.

Conclusions: : In our series, with a significant number of patients and follow- up, ICL phakic lens seems an effective and safe option in the correction of high refractive errors in young patients who cannot undergo corneal ablation surgery.
