ABSTRACT NUMBER - 1

PRECISION IOL GUIDE – A NEW CONTACT LENS BASED DEVICE FOR GUIDING MANUAL CAPSULORRHEXIS AND IOL CENTRATION AND TORIC AXIS ALIGNMENT


Laurence Sullivan

Meeting:  2016 RANZCO


SESSION INFORMATION

Date: 21 Nov 2016

Session Title: Cataract

Session Time: 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Purpose: I have developed a laser etched contact lens to use as a guide for manual capsulorrhexis and IOL centration and toric alignment. Prototypes have been trialled.

Setting/Venue: Private surgeons have trialled the device in accredited surgery centres.

Methods: We have compared the use of the guide to video based surgical guidance systems and found good concordance with capsulorrhexis size and centration.

Results: Ease of use was good, and the device gives good assistance for capsulorrhexis, and IOL centration and toric alignment. Annoyance factor is minimal for the surgeon.

Conclusions: PrecisionIOLguide, a contact lens based device, may be useful for surgeons who do not use a video based surgical guidance system or femtosecond laser.
