Aim

To analyze the sharpness of the posterior optic edge of intraocular lenses (IOLs) marketed with a ‘square-edge’ profile.

Methods

  • Seventeen IOLs of different designs and material all marketed as ‘square-edge’ IOLs

  • 20 Diopter IOL of each selected

  • IOLs examined with environmental scanning electron microscopy


Edge profile of commercially available square edge intraocular lenses

FEI Quanta 200F field emission gun environmental scanning electron microscope was used to examine IOLs

  • Parameters standardized for all IOLs

  • 93.3 Pascal (0.7 torr),

  • Specimen temperature of 20oC,

  • Voltage of 15 KV

  • Magnification x 500

  • Average processing time 25 minutes

IOLs mounted using a simple microscope

Haptic excised

Some IOLs required cutting of the

haptic and/or optic to view edge

Posterior edge appears always on the left

Conclusion

  • Commercially marketed ‘square edge’ IOLs differ in posterior edge sharpness.

  • Most hydrophobic acrylic and silicone IOLs have sharper posterior optic square edges compared to most hydrophilic acrylic IOLs. This probably reflects difference in manufacturing techniques.

  • The difference in the posterior optic edge profile may explain why some IOLs have relatively poor PCO performance and may explain why some IOL materials appear to have better PCO performance than others.
