[Artificial lenses in surgery of traumatic cataracts due to perforating injuries of the eye].

Abstract

In this work longdated anatomical and functional results of artificial lens implantation in traumatic cataracts after perforation of the eye in the group of 44 eyes (43 patients) aged between 3-54 years are evaluated (in the years 1985-89). Average period of observation was 6.3 years. Saving capsula, the artificial intraocular lens was implanted into the posterior eye chamber. In the years 1985-86 also the pupilar models (T03 Fyodorv-Zacharov) were used. In absent of capsular support, the artificial intraocular lens was implanted into the anterior eye chamber and also the posterior-chamber models with polypropylene haptics were successfully applicated (less number of negative changes was achieved). The visual acuity 6/36 and better was constated in 79.5% eyes (before operation only in 13.7%) during the last examination of the observed patients. Best results were achieved after implantation into the posterior eye chamber (90% of the eyes had visual acuity 6/6-6/12).
