Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Acrylate Intraocular Lenses in Cataract Surgery of Uveitis Patients
Official Title  ICMJE Comparison of Two Different Acrylate Intraocular Lenses in Cataract Surgery in Patients With Non-infectious Uveitis
Brief Summary 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.
