I evaluated the clinical status in 25 eyes, 25 patients, for 2 years after phacoemulsification-aspiration for cataract and implantation of a new acrylic soft intraocular lens. The intraocular lens was folded with forceps and implanted through a 3.4-4.0mm incision. Three days after surgery, corrected visual acuity was 0.5 or better in 100% of eyes and 1.0 in 72%. At 2 years after surgery, corrected visual acuity was 0.8 or better in all the eyes and 1.0 in 92%. The rate of corneal endothelial loss averaged 7.4±3.3% at 6 months and 9.8±3.7% at 2 years. Postoperative inflammation as quantitated by laser flare-cell meter was lower than other IOLs including foldable ones. The degree of anterior and posterior capsule opacification was impressively slight during the 2 years of observation. YAG laser capsulotomy was necessary in 1 eye only. The findings show that the acrylic soft intraocular lens is highly stable in the implanted eye and has clinical advantages for small-incision cataract surgery.
