  1. J L Pearce

    Abstract

    68 eyes in which Choyce Mark VIII anterior chamber lenses had been implanted were examined, all surgery having been performed by Mr. Choyce. The average time since implantation was 5-5 years aand in 85 per cent. of eyes the corrected visual acuity was 6/12 or better. Bullous keratopathy, corneal epithelial oedema, and peripheral anterior synechiae giving rise to glaucoma were the most serious complications. Visual result, binocular function, and patient satisfaction were generally very good.
