Abstract
This study evaluated the surgical outcome and
complications of phacoemulsification and the implantation
of an acryl foldable intraocular lens (IOL) with a squared
edge in dogs with cataracts. Thirty-two eyes from 26 dogs
were examined. The mean follow up period was 75.9 days
ranging from 23 to 226 days. The complications after
phacoemulsification were posterior capsular opacity (PCO)
around the IOL (n = 11), ocular hypertension (n = 4),
focal posterior synechia (n = 4), hyphema (n = 3) and
corneal ulcer (n = 2). The complications associated with
the IOL were decenteration of the optic (n = 2) and
ventral haptic displacement (n = 1). Most cases of PCO
were found only around the margin of the IOL, and all
eyes had vision during the observation period. In
conclusion, the implantation of an acryl-foldable lens with
a squared edge at the time of phacoemulsification is an
effective method for preserving the central visual field of
dogs with cataract.
