To determine the efficacy and Safety of ICL IOL Implantation for the correction of high myopia in patients with previous retinal detachment.
ICL Intraocular lens implantation was performed in 7 eyes with high myopia, mean spherical refraction was -15.00 (R 12-18); 8 months before, patients presented regmatogenous retinal detachment-no macula involment, mean RRD time was 8 months (R6-10), they underwent reatachment retinal surgery (Vitrectomy/escleral buckle); UCVA, BCVA, refraction, cornealtopography,anterior and posterior segment revision was performed.
mean UCVA preoperative was 6/200 (R 4/200-8/200), mean BCVA preoperative was 20/30 (R 20/20-20/40), mean spherical preoperative refraction was -15.00 (R 12-18), mean follow up time was 23 months (R 21-25), mean UCVA postoperative was 20/30 (R 20/20-20/40), mean BCVA postoperative was 20/25 (R 20/20-20/30), mean spherical postoperative refraction was -0.75 (R -0.25/-1.25), retina is atachment and no sign or sintoms are present at this time.
Our datta suggest that ICL intraocular lens implantation is efficacy for reduction of myopia and is safe in patients with previous retinal reatachment surgery, longer follw up is needed to determinate the effect of the ICL on the retina.
