Abstract [en]

PURPOSE / METHODS: The long-term results obtained by a modified method of scleral suturing of posterior chamber lenses (PCLs) (Behndig & Otto 1997) were retrospectively registered and evaluated. Forty-four patients with insufficient capsular support for ordinary PCL implantation were included. Mean follow-up time was 13.1 +/- 6.4 months and registered parameters included visual acuity, deviation from planned refractive outcome, induced astigmatism, and complications. RESULTS / CONCLUSIONS: The results were comparable to those reported earlier for this type of surgery. It has previously been stated that scleral suturing of posterior chamber lenses is a safe procedure with good long-term results. This modified method produces comparable results while being more surgically simple and reproducible.
