To analyze the clinical results of AcrySof intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.
San Juan University Hospital, Alicante, Spain.
This retrospective study comprised 100 patients with cataract: 81 without previous eye pathology and 19 with previous eye pathology (i.e., diabetes, traumatic cataract, central corneal leukoma, glaucoma). Phacoemulsification technique depended on the type of cataract. Mean follow-up was 9 months.
Best corrected visual acuity was 20/40 or better in 11.52% of patients with preoperative eye pathology and in 100% of those without pathology.
Implantation of AcrySof IOLs did not result in complications or adverse reactions in our series, indicating that its use is safe in small incision cataract surgery.
