Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether single-piece hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lens can be safely implanted without the use of ophthalmic viscosurgical devices. This retrospective study comprised 100 eyes having phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation without the use of ophthalmic viscosurgical device. 80 eyes with the use of a viscosurgical device are used as control group. In this intraocular lens implantation technique, the anterior chamber was maintained with an irrigation cannula and intraocular lens was implanted with a lens injector. Visual acuity, corneal clarity and edema, intraocular pressure, and corneal endothelial cell count were evaluated preoperatively and postoperatively at days 1, 7, and 30. Corneal endothelial cell count was repeated 2 weeks after surgery. Complications of this technique were also evaluated. No significant complications of this intraocular lens implantation technique, such as posterior capsule rupture, intraocular lens buttonholing, zonular dialysis, Descemet’s tear/detachment, occurred. On the seventh postoperative day, 90 % of eyes achieved 20/20 or better vision. There was no difference in corneal endothelial cell loss between viscoelastic device-used and not-used cases (p = 0.356). When implanting intraocular lens without the use of ophthalmic viscosurgical device, significant intraoperative complications did not occur. The possible advantages are shortened surgery time, avoidance of postoperative IOP spike from ocular viscosurgical device (OVD) remnant, and reduced cost.
