  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed transscleral sulcus fixation of the intraocular lens (IOL) in 21 eyes during the foregoing 2 years. It was performed on 12 aphakic eyes as secondary IOL insertion and on 9 eyes with lens luxation. The visual acuity improved in 8 eyes in the former group and in 9 eyes in the latter. The corneal endothelial cell loss averaged 13.9 ± 11.4% in the former group and 16.3 ± 14.7% in the latter. The postoperative astigmatism averaged 2.4 ± 1.9 D in the former group and 1.4 ± 0.5 D in the latter. There were no significant differences in both values between the two groups. Postoperative ocular hypertension was more common in eyes with lens luxation, probably due to the foregoing ocular trauma. The findings show the effectiveness and relative safety of sulcus fixation of the IOL for lens luxation.
