Tetraflex accommodating

A clear corneal incision (2.8 mm) was made, preferably on the steep corneal axis.Anterior curvilinear capsulorrhexis (approximately 5.5 mm in diameter for monofocal IOLs and 6.0 mm for accommodative IOLs) was performed.We enrolled 58 subjects (62 eyes) with no preexisting ocular pathology except senile cataracts.The eyes were implanted with the Crystalens HD accommodative IOL (23 eyes of 21 patients), Tek-Clear accommodative IOL (14 eyes of 12 patients) or SA60AT monofocal IOL (25 eyes of 25 patients).Inclusion criteria were age from 40 to 80 years, unilateral or bilateral senile cataracts and minimum level of education (literacy).Exclusion criteria included more than one diopter (D) of keratometric astigmatism, incomplete or damaged zonules, any anterior segment pathology (e.g., chronic uveitis, rubeosis iridis, corneal dystrophy), controlled or undertreated glaucoma, retinal pathologies or history of retinal detachment, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, congenital cataracts, monocular status or previous ocular surgery in either eye.
