Abstract
To report a patient fifteen years after anterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (AC-PIOL) implantation in one and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in the fellow eye.
Case report.
A 56-year-old male underwent AC-PIOL implantation in one eye and LASIK in the fellow eye fifteen years ago. Preoperative uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) was finger count in both eyes. Preoperative best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA) was 20/25 (-16.75 -0.50 x 40) in the LASIK eye and 20/32 (-24.50 -0.50 x 90) in the AC-PIOL eye. Fifteen years postoperatively, UCVA was finger count in the LASIK eye and 20/200 in the AC-PIOL eye, while BSCVA was 20/32 and 20/25, respectively. Endothelial cell density (ECD) was 2020+/-47 in the LASIK eye and 945+/-22 in the AC-PIOL eye.
Both procedures had similar visual outcomes. Furthermore, lower ECD was found in the AC-PIOL eye in comparison to the LASIK eye.
