Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To determine the incidence of refractive errors with implantation of hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) in comparison with hydrophobic IOL , and to evaluate biocompatibility between each groups. Methods: This prospective, comparative, interventional and longitudinal study comprised 40 eyes of 37 patients having phacoemulsification and implantation of an IOL in the Instituto de Oftalmología Conde de Valenciana. There were two groups of 20 eyes each of one, in the first group was implanted an hydrophilic IOL , in the second group hydrophobic IOL. Patients were examined 1,7,30,90, 180 and 360 day after surgery, refractive errors and biocompatibility were measured. Results: The hydrophobic IOL group had greater flare in first days of follow–up visits, 11 patients (55%) had myopia, 2 patients (15%) hyperopia. The hydrophilic IOL group had greater incidence of posterior capsule opacification , with difference statistically significant ( P = <0.05); 15 patients (75%) had miopia, and 2 patients (10%) had hyperopia. Conclusions: The difference in refractive errors was no statistically significant between both group. The hydrophobic IOL have better capsular biocompatibility than hydrophilic IOL.
