  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed cataract surgery with foldable intraocular lens (IOL) made of silicone and acrylic IOL made of PMMA in 30 eyes each. We evaluated the postoperative visual acuity, refraction, corneal topography, contrast sensitivity, decentration of IOL, corneal endothelial cells and anterior aqueous flare. Visual acuity during the early operative stage was better in foldable IOLs. Astigmatism in the foldable IOL group was lesser in amount and became stable in the early postoperative stage. There was no difference in astigmatism between the two types of IOL at one month after surgery. Contrast sensitivity was less in the medium to high frequency ranges in the foldable IOL group. Decentration of IOL increased in the foldable IOL group. Aqueous flare at the first postoperative day was less in eyes receiving silicone thas acrylic IOLs. Here was no reincrease in flare value in eyes receiving acrylic IOLs. All the parameters were more stable in eyes implanted with acrylic than silicone IOLs.
