Presented in part at the Symposium on Cataract, IOL and Refractive Surgery, Orlando, Florida, April 1987. Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery: May 1988 - Volume 14 - Issue 3 - p 281-285 doi: 10.1016/S0886-3350(88)80117-2 Free Metrics Abstract A posterior chamber lens with five-degree angulated loops made by Hoya Company, Ltd., (181 lenses) and Menicon Company, Ltd., (19 lenses) was implanted in 200 consecutive eyes with senile or developmental cataracts without other known preoperative ocular conditions. The postoperative visual acuity with correction was excellent—20/40 or better in 97.5% of eyes and 20/20 or better in 79.0%. The rate of in-the-bag implantation was 67.5%. There were no cases of primary pupil capture of the lens optic; secondary capture due to postoperative inflammation and synechias was observed in 7.0% of eyes. © Williams & Wilkins 1988.
