Acrylate Intraocular Lenses in Cataract Surgery of Uveitis Patients

This study has been completed.

Last verified: August 2009
Cataract is a common complication in uveitis patients. Cataract operations with intraocular lens implantation are difficult in these patients because of complication due to the biocompatibility of the intraocular lens. In this study, uveal and capsular biocompatibility of two widely used acrylate intraocular lenses are compared.

Condition Intervention
Uveitis Cataract Device: intraocular lenses: Two foldable, acrylic, sharp edged IOLs: AcrySof™ (AcrySof SA60AT, Alcon), and Akreos adapt™ (Bausch & Lomb)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Comparison of Two Different Acrylate Intraocular Lenses in Cataract Surgery in Patients With Non-infectious Uveitis
