• Purpose: To examine the deposition of extracellullar matrix on silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) implanted experimentally into rabbit eyes by electron microscopy and to determine the immunolocalization of extracellular matrix components, including collagen types and cellular fibronectin, on these IOLs. • Methods: We performed phacoemulsification and aspiration of the crystalline lens and implanted a foldable silicone IOL in the capsular bag of one eye of each of 26 adult albino rabbits under… CONTINUE READING
