Abstract Details


Evaluation of postoperative 5 years outcomes using surface modified intraocular lens (IOL) to prevent posterior capsular opacification (PCO).


Department of Ophthalmology, Dokkyo Medical University, Tochigi, Japan.


Subjects comprised 30 patients, 60 eyes that underwent phacoemulsification. The mean age of patients is 70.8±8.6. Surface modified hydrophobic acrylic IOL (SP2, HOYA) or three piece IOL (FY-60AD, HOYA) were randomly implanted. Images were taken using an EAS-1000 (NIDEK) after 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 year postoperatively, to analyze the light scattering and posterior sub-capsular opacification (PCO). The images were photographed from 2 directions (0 and 90 degree) and the densities on surface (sub-surface nano glistening), center (glistening) and PCO of IOLs were measured and compared. The probability of survival ratio about YAG laser capsulotomy were also measured.


The densities on surface of SP2 and FY-60AD were 2.1 CCT and 5.5 CCT after 5 years. The center were 1.4 CCT and 2.2 CCT. The posterior were 6.5 CCT and 11.4 CCT respectively. There were statistically significances. The ratio of YAG laser capsulotomy were 3.3% in SP2 and 28.6% in FY-60AD.


Surface modified hydrophobic acrylic IOL (SP2) is prevented PCO for more than 5 years. And the materials is also stable during the same periods.
