Surgical technique influences refractive outcomes, stability


Mesa, AZ-A study of the refractive performance of two IOL styles, namely, a three-piece acrylic IOL (MA60BM, Alcon, Fort Worth, TX) with polymethylmethacrylate haptics and a new single-piece acrylic IOL (SA60AT, Alcon), showed that both IOLs provided patients with excellent refractive outcomes when the capsulorhexis was constructed in such a way as to be round, centered, and smaller than the optic of the IOL. Implantation of the SA60AT resulted inexceptionally high refractive accuracy, according to Warren E. Hill, MD, a private practitioner in Mesa, AZ.
