Multicomponent IOL implantation is safe, easy and provides excellent vision, according to a recent case series.

Dr Portaliou et al., Institute of Vision and Optics, University of Crete School of Medicine, Heraklion, Crete, Greece, conducted an initial evaluation of six patients who underwent routine cataract surgery and multicomponent IOL implantation. Surgical implantation technique, the manufacturing feasibility of the IOL and the incidence of interlenticular fibrosis were all evaluated.

There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications and no cases of interlenticular fibrosis. The outcomes produced no statistically significant differences in endothelial cell density, anterior chamber depth or pachymetry readings throughout the two-year study.

Multicomponent IOL implantation is an efficient, successful and safe procedure for patients undergoing routine cataract surgery.
