Objective. To develop a method for correcting childish aphakia by forming a capsule for delayed implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL) after the congenital cataract extraction in patients under 6 months.
Materials and methods. In the ophthalmology department of the Minsk Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital
15 patients (25 eyes) were operated on for 2008—2019 using the proposed technique. At the age of patients 2—4 months old, an extraction was carried out. The congenital cataracts were extracted with the formation of capsules for delayed IOL implantation when infants were 2 – 4 months old. IOL implantations were carried out into the prepared capsule bag when the children reached the age of three years or older (optimally at 6—7 years).
Results. Stable functional results were achieved when the delayed IOL implantations were performed and therefore
a better quality of life was provided.
Conclusion. The method reduces the number of complications caused by an intraocular lens early implantation, increases the possibility of getting into the refraction of the target, contributes to the improvement of visual acuity.Ключевые слова:
