INCIDENT OF WRONG PC INTRAOCULAR LENS (IOL) IMPLANT AND SURGICAL TECHNIQUE FOR IOL EXCHANGE

Ritesh Verma

Abstract


: One of the most prevalent and preventable error in the cataract surgery is placement of incorrect intraocular lens implant. We present a case of IOL (intraocular lens) exchange surgery due to a biometry error and the surgical technique for the same. Patient was unhappy with results of initial surgery and demanded an exchange surgery after which there was complete restoration of vision.


Keywords
