Cataract/Anterior Segment, Complications, IOLs and Implantation, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus
In this interview from AAPOS 2021, Dr. Edward Wilson describes the long-term outcomes of angle-supported anterior chamber IOLs for pediatric aphakia. Although most patients do well for the first 3 years, he reports that the implant was removed from 23% of study patients because the lens began to rotate and the pupil began to oval. Based on these findings, he suspects that these lenses may not be appropriate for the growing eyes of children.
