Background Information on the centration and tilt of iris-claw intraocular lenses (IC-IOLs) is limited.

All contralateral eyes with IB IOL were automatically measured. The median decentration was 0.67 mm, 0.24 mm, and 0.24 mm in posterior IC-IOLs, anterior IC-IOLs, and IB IOLs group, respectively. The median tilt was 5.0 degrees, 5.6 degrees, and 5.6 degrees for posterior IC-IOLs, anterior IC-IOLs, and IB IOLs, respectively. Tilt direction was mainly temporal, while decentration was inferior-temporal with posterior IC-IOLs and scattered with anterior IC-IOLs and IB IOLs.

Abstract

Background Information on the centration and tilt of iris-claw intraocular lenses (IC-IOLs) is limited. In this study, we tested the capacity of an anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) instrument to measure decentration and tilt of anterior and posterior IC-IOLs through an integrated software. Methods The present observational, cross-sectional study was conducted at University Eye Clinic of Parma (Parma, Italy). The CASIA2 swept-source AS-OCT (Tomey Corp.) was used to measure the tilt and decentration of posterior and anterior IC-IOLs in patients implanted at least 6 months in advance. After failure with full-automation, semi-manual IOL tracing was applied. In-the-bag (IB) contralateral IOLs, when present, were measured automatically. The Bland-Altman method was used to evaluate the agreement between repeated measurements (2 images for each study eye). The amount and direction of tilt and decentration were recorded and plotted into polar charts for evaluation. Results A total of 21 patients were included: 14 with posterior and 7 with anterior IC-IOL fixation. In 17 eyes (81%), the AS-OCT provided a repeatable measurement of tilt and decentration. All contralateral eyes with IB IOL were automatically measured. The median decentration was 0.67 mm, 0.24 mm, and 0.24 mm in posterior IC-IOLs, anterior IC-IOLs, and IB IOLs group, respectively.
