Unilateral iris-claw intraocular lens implantation for aphakia: a paired-eye study was the title of the paper Dr. Paula Verdaguer presented at the Congress of the European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) in Copenhagen on 10-14 September.

The study compares the response of aphakic eyes without capsular support that underwent iris-claw intraocular lens implantation to that of fellow eyes that can or cannot have been operated using non-complicated cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation in the capsular bag. The analysis concludes that iris-claw intraocular lens implantation in aphakic patients is a safe, effective procedure. It warns, however, that in all cases regular monitoring of the corneal endothelium is mandatory.

The 37th ESCRS Congress boasted the attendance around 7,500 professionals and a programme divided into five tracks (Simposia, YO (Young Ophthalmologists), Cataract Complications and Special Cases, Cornea and Glaucoma). It also devoted a day and a specific workshop to presbyopia.

Dr. Verdaguer specialises in Cornea, Refractive Surgery and Cataract at the Institut de la Mácula.
