Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery: July 1994 - Volume 20 - Issue 4 - p 421-425 doi: 10.1016/S0886-3350(13)80178-2 Free Metrics Abstract We examined a series of 53 consecutive eyes from which Dubroff-style anterior chamber lenses were explanted. The mean time from implantation to explantation was 46.21 months (range six to 99 months). Problems leading to explantation included bullous keratopathy (83%), glaucoma (51 %), chronic cystoid macular edema (40%), and iritis (13%). Molteno valves were required in 9% of eyes. Progressive anterior synechias resulted in intraocular lens displacement against the cornea in 19%. The Dubroff lenses caused problems similar to those previously observed with closed-loop anterior chamber lenses but had a higher incidence of severe glaucoma and progressive peripheral anterior synechias. © Williams & Wilkins 1994.
