Abstract

PURPOSE: To compare differences in intraocular lens (IOL) decentration, tilt and anterior chamber depth (ACD) using Pentacam-Scheimpflug System images in eyes having phacoemulsification with implantation of 1 of 3 types of IOLs. METHODS: This study comprised 117 cataractous eyes of 109 patients having phacoemulsification and IOL implantation. The eyes were randomized into 3 groups based on IOL type. The degree of IOL decentration, tilt and ACD was measured using Oculus Pentacam System 1 day and 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery. RESULTS: There was no significant change during the 12 months follow-up period in decentration or tilt in each group (P > 0.05). There was no significant differenc..
