ICL surgically inserted contact lens

Kenneth C Y Chan, Wayne Birchall, Trevor B Gray, Anthony P Wells
We present a case of acute angle closure that occurred after insertion of an implantable contact lens (ICL). The apparent papillary-block angle closure did not resolve after 2 patent iridotomies and a surgical iridectomy, but did respond to pupil dilation (not constriction). Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed abnormally large and irregular ciliary processes that may have contributed to the unusual behavior of the ICL-iris complex. The condition resolved after the ICL was replaced by one with a smaller haptic diameter...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy, safety and stability of posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens implantation for the correction of extreme myopia. METHODS: This study included 216 eyes of 113 patients with a mean age of 30 years (18 approximately 49) from January 1997 to December 2005. An implantable contact lens (ICL V2 and V4, Staar Surgical Inc.) was inserted. Patients were examined preoperatively and followed at 1 day, 1 week, 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, and 36 months postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To study the incidence and progression of lens opacification after implantation of phakic posterior chamber intraocular lenses for myopia and its correlation with vaulting and endothelial cell density (ECD). SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, University of Vienna Medical School, Vienna, Austria. METHODS: An implantable contact lens (ICL V4, Staar Surgical Inc.) was inserted in 76 myopic eyes. Patients were prospectively followed preoperatively and at 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, and 36 months...

Phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs), which are located closer to the eye's nodal points than the anterior corneal surface, can provide superior optical quality for higher corrections because of retention of normal prolate corneal asphericity and larger effective optical zones. Improvements in the material and design of phakic intraocular lenses and their insertion devices combined with advances in the understanding of the anatomical and physiological interactions of the PIOLs with intraocular structures, have increased safety and efficacy...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate long-term results after insertion of implantable contact lenses (ICLs) in phakic eyes. DESIGN: Prospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS: Seventy-five phakic eyes (65 myopic, 10 hyperopic eyes) of 45 patients aged 21.7 to 60.6 years were included. INTERVENTION: STAAR Collamer Implantable Contact Lenses (STAAR Surgical Inc., Nidau, Switzerland) were implanted for correction of high myopia and hyperopia...
