The Malfunctioning and Malpositioned Intraocular Lens

Nicole Fram, Advanced Vision Care (Presenter)

This lecture will focus on managing patients with malfunctioning and malpositioned IOLs. Often the care of this patient population is delayed or denied due to the perceived surgical risk associated with treatment. However, delay in care can lead to significant visual discomfort and, in the case of malpositioned IOLs, irreversible ocular damage. The malfunctioning IOL portion will include pseudophakic dysphotopsia and IOL opacification. The malpositioned IOL case presentations will include management of early and late dislocations. Preoperative testing and counseling, perioperative technique and postoperative management of this complex patient population.
