Abstract

Purpose: To report a case who received implantation of piggyback intraocular lens (IOL) for residual refractive error after cataract surgery. Case: A 70-year-old man presented to our clinic complaining of decreased visual acuity in his both eyes. Both eyes had received radial keratotomy 23 years before and photorefractive keratectomy 12 years before. Findings: Visual acuity was 0.5 right and 0.4 left without correction, and 0.9 right and 1.0 left with correction. Under diagnosis of age-related cataract, both eyes received phacoemulsification-aspiration with IOL implantation. Visual acuity was 0.5 in either eye without correction and 1.2 right and 1.0 left with correction one year later. The left eye had refraction of +3.00D()cyl-2.00D 65°. By request of the patient, monofocal piggyback IOL was implanted into the left eye. Six months after surgery, left visual acuity was 0.63 without and 1.0 with correction. There has been no complication throughout. Conclusion: Implantation of piggyback IOL can be a therapeutic option for residual refractive error after cataract surgery.
