OBJECTIVE Acrysoftrade mark (Alcon) foldable lenses (IOLs) have been shown to be highly biocompatible and exhibit a low incidence of posterior capsular opacification. However, minute vacuoles or 'glistenings' have been observed in some Acrysof IOLs. The clinical relevance of vacuole formation is presently unclear. To help clarify the influence of factors present under in vivo conditions on vacuole formation, the present experimental study examines the influence of aqueous humor components on… CONTINUE READING
