Anterior chamber intra ocular lens implantation
Ranjini, Valanjambalam, Cochin, India
The role of A.C. IOL in modern implant surgery has become somewhat debatable, since, the choice procedure to day is undoubtedly an ECCE with a PC lens implant preferably in the capsular bag. Even so, anterior chamber lens implantation has its definite indications. As such it is necessary for the implant surgeon to be familiar with the latest technique in this modality of surgery as well. Many of the complications of earlier rigid model AC IOLs were mainly due to defective lens design. With the advent of new generation flexible one-piece PMMA AC lenses, many of these complications have been eliminated. A.C. IOL implantation, although less frequently done now, has its own legitimate place in modern IOL surgery.
