  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed pars plana intraocular lens (IOL) suture fixation in 5 eyes (pars plana group). The postoperative refractive errors and complications were compared with 5 eyes which underwent IOL sulcus suture fixation (sulcus group) and 7 eyes with phacoemulcification-aspiration and IOL implantation (in the bag group). At 3 months after surgery, the mean refractive error was 0.63 D diopters (D) in the pars plana group. It was significantly less than that in the sulcus group (2.06 D) and almost equal to that in the bag group (0.49 D) . There was no difference in the frequency of complica-tions between the pars plana and the sulcus group. The findings show that pars plana IOL fixation has less postoperative refractive error without increasing in complications than sulcus IOL suture fixation.
