The purpose of this study was to determine the inhibitory effect of selenocystamine coated intraocular lenses (IOLs) on the formation of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) in an ex vivo canine lens capsular bag assay. Selenocystamine was covalently bound to the surface of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (poly(HEMA)) discs. Three groups of canine lens capsules (6 coated IOLs (SeIOLs), 7 non-coated control IOLs and 8 empty capsules) were cultured for 10 days. During the culture period PCO… CONTINUE READING
