To evaluate the biocompatibility of various materials including a poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate [HEMA])/(6-hydroxyhexyl methacrylate [HOHEXMA]) hydrophilic hydrogel intraocular lens (IOL) (Hydroview, Bausch & Lomb). Department of Ophthalmology, Wakayama Medical University, Wakayama, Japan. Ten opacified anterior capsules were extracted, including 3 specimens with the Hydroview IOL. They were processed for light and electron microscopy. Immunohistochemistry for alpha-smooth muscle actin… CONTINUE READING
