Comparison of 3 Piggyback IOLs
To evaluate and compare three piggyback intraocular lenses (IOLs).
A case series comparing three patients who received one of the following piggyback IOLs: Rayner, Human Optics, and 1stQ. The main outcome measures include uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), best-corrected distance visual acuity (BCDVA), intraoperative and postoperative complications.
The patient who underwent implantation with the Human Optics piggyback IOL had an improvement in their UDVA from 1.30 logMAR preoperatively, to 0.40 logMAR at 6 months postoperatively. In addition, the patients BCDVA remained stable at 0.18 logMAR. The patient who underwent implantation with the Rayner piggyback IOL had an improvement in their UDVA from 0.40 logMAR preoperatively, to 0.10 logMAR at 6 months postoperatively. In addition, their BCDVA remained stable at 0 logMAR. No intraoperative or postoperative complications were observed.
Preliminary results demonstrate that the Human Optics and Rayner piggyback IOLs are effective in correcting a refractive error following cataract surgery.
