To evaluate the role of optic edge design of 2 silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) in 2 year clinical results. Department of Ophthalmology, University of Vienna, Medical School, Allgemeines Krankenhaus, Austria. In this comparative clinical study, 50 eyes had phacoemulsification and implantation of a high-refractive 3-piece silicone IOL with sharp optic edges (CeeOn model 911F) (n = 25) or a 3-piece silicone lens with rounded optic edges (CeeOn model 920) (n = 25). Biomicroscopic findings, including those of specular microscopic examination of the anterior lens surface, were documented and the results analyzed. After 2 years, a significant between-group difference in posterior capsule opacification (PCO) but not in anterior capsule alterations was observed. Behind all CeeOn 911F sharp-edge IOLs, the capsule remained clear; in 2 of 23 capsules behind the CeeOn 920 rounded-edge, a neodymium: YAG laser capsulotomy had to be performed for dense central fibrotic PCO. Seven of 21 of the remaining eyes had first-degree central fibrotic PCO, 14 of 23 had peripheral mixed fibrotic and slender Elschnig pearl PCO, and 8 of 23 had second-degree peripheral PCO. Specular microscopic findings did not differ between the 2 groups. No severe IOL decentration occurred in any eye; 25% in the sharp-edge group and 40% in the rounded-edge group had minimal decentration. The silicone IOL with the sharp optic edge design was associated with significantly reduced PCO 2 years postoperatively.
