Abstract

PURPOSE: To study the outcomes of successful reenclavation of subluxated iris-fixated phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs). SETTING: Tertiary eyecare referral center. METHODS: Interventional case series comprised eyes with a subluxated Verisyse pIOL that had successful reenclavation of 1 haptic. A comparison of outcomes between primary pIOL implantation surgery and subsequent reenclavation was performed. The parameters were uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuity and the quantitative endothelial changes preoperatively and postoperatively at 1 week and 1, 3, and 6 months. RESULTS: Nine eyes of 6 patients were evaluated. Disenclavation was spontaneous in 6 eyes (66.6%) and ..
