To assess the outcomes of anterior chamber foldable Intraocular lens (IOL) for aphakia correction

Retrospective non-comparative case series study for patients who underwent an operation for aphakia correction by the means of injection of an angular suppoted foldable IOL performed for 20 eyes of 15 patients. Student's paired t-test was carried out to compare pre-operative and post-operative visual acuity (VA),IOP and corneal endothelial cell count.

15 patients were included in the study; 12 males & 3 females. Mean age was 55.38+_ 17.67 years. Mean follow-up duration was 5.95+_3.14 months. The mean log-MAR visual acuity was 1.26+_0.46 pre-operatively and 0.78+_0.57 postoperatively (P=0.003). The change in IOP and corneal endothelial cell count were not statistically significant.

Injection of angular support foldable IOL in the AC is a useful technique for the correction of aphakia
