To evaluate the incidence of adverse events (AEs) in patients who underwent refractive lens exchange.
Retrospective case series.
Setting: Private refractive surgery clinics. Patients/Study Population: Patients who underwent refractive lens exchange between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2016.
Intervention/Observation Procedures: All AEs recorded in the electronic medical record were extracted and retrospectively reviewed.
The total incidence of AEs and serious AEs was calculated. Loss of 2 or more lines of corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) was calculated for the entire cohort of patients that attended a minimum of 3 months follow-up. Main Outcome Measures: AEs.
The total number of patients included was 10,206 (18,689 eyes).
A multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) was implanted in 84.3% of eyes; 15.7% of eyes received a monofocal IOL. A total of 1164 AEs were recorded (1112 eyes of 1039 patients, incidence 6.0% of eyes, 1:17 eyes).
The most common AE was posterior capsular opacification (PCO; 748 eyes, incidence 4.0%). Of all AEs, 171 events (occurring in 165 eyes of 151 patients, incidence 0.9%, 1:113 eyes) were classified as serious, potentially sight threatening.
Loss of 2 or more lines of CDVA was 0.56% when excluding eyes where the loss of CDVA was due to PCO; the majority of these were due to macular causes.
