OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to determine the minimal incision sizes required for implantation of a variety of different foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs) and to evaluate the effect of incision size on tissue damage. DESIGN Randomized experimental study. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-nine fresh human cadaveric eyes: 15 (pilot study), 48 (main study), and 6 (scanning electron microscopy study). INTERVENTION Implantation of foldable IOLs into cadaveric eyes. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES In 48… CONTINUE READING
