Abstract Details


To evaluate refractive stability and visual outcomes following final refractive lock-in following implantation of a Light Adjustable Lens in cataract and post-Lasik cataract patients.


AaM Augenklinik am Marienplatz Munich, Germany


Ninety-six eyes have been implated to date. All eyes were implanted with a Light-Adjustable Lens (Calhoun Vision, Pasadena, CA) during routine cataract surgery. Approximately 2 weeks post-surgery, the patients‘ visual acuity and refraction were assessed and with a UV device (Light Delivery Device, CalhounVision) treated to adjust the IOL. Following any necessary refractive adjustments, the final lock-in was performed, making the IOL power permanent.


For the two-year analysis, 65 eyes were included with a mean age of the patients of 63 years of age (48 to 83). The mean preoperative refractive error was -1.87 D and at 1 year this was 0.13 D. Ninety-four percent of eyes were ±0.50 D from the intended preoperative target. The LAL also demonstrated good stability following the final lock-in treatment. Of the eyes included here, 24 had previous corneal refractive procedures such as LASIK, PRK, radial keratotomy or corneal rings – all showed the same good results as „virgin“ eyes.


Light Adjustable Lens implantation during refractive cataract surgery together with postoperative IOL power adjustment demonstrated stable and effective results in achieving the targeted refraction. Even eyes with previous corneal refractive surgery, such as post-LASIK, demonstrated the same very good refractive and visual outcomes.
