ANTERIOR SUBCAPSULAR CATARACT IN 15% OF EYES WITH ICL

Ophthalmology, doi:10.1016/j.ophtha.2009.10.033

The distance between the implant and the crystalline lens was significantly less in older patients and significantly greater in patients with a toric ICL. Thhere was a significantly lower incidence of contact between the lenses in eyes implanted with a toric ICL.

Anterior subcapsular opacification developed in 13.0% of eyes. There was contact between the ICL and the crystalline lens in 15.6% of the eyes and half of these developed anterior subcapsular opacification. The association between anterior subcapsular opacification and contact was significant.
