Iris-fixated intraocular lenses for ametropia and aphakia.

Simões PS, Ferreira TB - Med Hypothesis Discov Innov Ophthalmol (2014)

Bottom Line: Implantation of intraocular lens with Iris-fixation is a safe, efficient and predictable surgical procedure, which empowers the refractive surgeon with singular capabilities.Among their advantages are the reversibility, preservation of accommodation and a broad spectrum of ametropic correction.This lens also appears to be a valid option, with a favorable complication rate, for the treatment of aphakic eyes without capsular support.

ABSTRACT
Implantation of intraocular lens with Iris-fixation is a safe, efficient and predictable surgical procedure, which empowers the refractive surgeon with singular capabilities. Among their advantages are the reversibility, preservation of accommodation and a broad spectrum of ametropic correction. This lens also appears to be a valid option, with a favorable complication rate, for the treatment of aphakic eyes without capsular support. This article is a review of iris-fixated intraocular lenses and considers their principal indications, complications, and outcomes.

Figure 2: Artiflex / Veriflex Myopia (3)

Mentions: Small incisions grant faster visual recovery with less induced astigmatism (6). As stated before, the Artiflex is a foldable version of the Artisan pIOL, with a similar design (Figure 2). Outcomes are mostly comparable with those of previous Artisan studies (31). Though a higher occurrence of pigment precipitates when compared to the Artisan lens has been reported, in most cases they appear to be transient and without clinical significance (6,31). Artiflex pIOL appears to be a useful improvement of the Artisan product family with excellent predictability, efficacy, and safety, when specifications of the manufacturer are taken into account regarding patient selection and postoperative care (6,32). As with the Artisan lens, the author´s experience endorse the importance of the morphometric study of the anterior chamber (AC) during the follow-up period (33).
