Focal Points 2019 Module: Management of the Aphakic Patient

Focal Points 2019 Module: Management of the Aphakic Patient
With improvements in IOL technology, suture material and surgical technique, there has been a renewed interest in surgical correction of aphakia. With the introduction of these innovative techniques, there are now options for almost every patient.

Each technique has its unique benefits and challenges. The preferred choice for a patient depends on the results of a thorough physical examination and the surgeon’s familiarity with the various options.

This Focal Points module reviews the important aspects of the preoperative evaluation and several innovative techniques used for correction of aphakia.

By completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Properly evaluate a patient with aphakia.
  • Discuss several different procedures for correction of aphakia.
  • Summarize the importance of anterior vitrectomy in surgical correction of aphakia.
  • Recognize the importance that lens material has in surgical correction of aphakia.
