Acrylate Intraocular Lenses in Cataract Surgery of Uveitis Patients

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.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Uveitis Cataract Device: intraocular lenses: Two foldable, acrylic, sharp edged IOLs: AcrySof™ (AcrySof SA60AT, Alcon), and Akreos adapt™ (Bausch & Lomb) Not Applicable
