ABSTRACT

Aim: To compare the visual outcome and complications in scleral fixated intraocular lens implantation by using ab externo two point fixation technique and true knotless technique. Setting: Eye department, NKP Salve Institute of Medical Sciences and Lata Mangeshkar Hospital. Design: Retrospective, comparative study. Methods: A consecutive series of 40 scleral fixated intraocular lens(IOL) surgeries using ab externo two point fixation technique and true knotless technique from July 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015 was analyzed. Main outcome measures included the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and post-operative complications. Results: There were 19 eyes in the ab externo two point fixation group and 21 eyes in the true knotless group. At last follow up (5 months), there was no statistically significant difference in the BCVA of the two techniques. Complications like IOL tilt (p= 0.13) and raised IOP (p=0.51) were also comparable in both the techniques. Conclusion: The visual outcomes in eyes that underwent ab externo two point fixation technique and true
