Abstract: 

Purpose: We implanted the Thinlens TM as an ultrathin intraocular lens (IOL) and evaluated its safety and refractive outcomes.
Patients and Methods: Twenty one patients with cataract who were visited at Noor Vision Correction Center (NVCC) from March to July 2002, were chosen. These patients underwent the same phacoemulsification procedure as other cataract patients. One hundred and five eyes, which had cataract surgery and a foldable IOL insertion during the same period, were chosen as the control group.
Results: At the 12th month follow up, mean uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) in the ThinlensTM group was 0.67:t0.17 logMar in comparison to 0.66±0.14 logMar in the control group (P=0.789). Mean best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in these groups was 0.25±0.12 and 0.31±0.07 logMar, respectively (P=0.118). There was no statistically significant difference in major complications after surgery between the groups. In the ThinlensTM group, the rate of posterior capsule opacity (PCO) seems to be higher than newer IOL generations.
Discussion: The ThinlensTM seems to be an easy lens to handle, the refractive outcome, and safety appear to be comparable to other modern IOLs. The effect of excessive intracapsular space on the development of PCO must be further studied.
