Abstract

Hundred eyes of 97 patients were operated for determining complications and visual outcome of Sclerally Fixed Posterior Chamber Intraocular Lenses at Institute of Ophthalmology, Mayo Hospital, Lahore from January 2002 till December 2002. Those operated either had ICCE done previously, per-operated large rent in posterior capsules, dislocated lens and t raumatic subluxated cataractous Iens. Immediate complications were transient rise in IOP, corneal edema, striate keratopathy. Late complications noted had decentration of IOL ( 4%), Cystoid Macular edema 4%, suture erosion (2%) and lens tilt (1%). 80% patients had Post-operative V/A of 6/6-6/12 and 20% had V/A 6/18- 6/60 as compared to Pre-Operative V/A of 56% in 6/6-6/12, 10% in 6/18-6/60 and 34% in 3/60-PL+ ve. Encouraging results favour this procedure.
