  • Look Inside

We surveyed the current status of intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in uveitic eyes in Japan. A question-naire was sent to 139 major ophthalmological institutions, resulting in recovery from 107 (77%). Publication of the results was granted from 97 institutions. Cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation was routinely performed in 96(99%). This procedure was practised to all types of uveitis in 61%. Behçet disease was regarded as contraindication in 32%. IOL made of PMMA was used in 40%, heparin surface-modified ones in 38% and acrylic ones in 39%. The findings show a general trend to treat cataract with uveitis by IOL implantation in Japan.
