The company has a group of cooperation teams engaged in the Silicone Optics Manufacturer, silicone fly eye lens industry for many years, with dedication, innovation spirit and service awareness, and has established a sound quality control and management system to ensure product quality.


To analyze centration and fixation of three-piece and one-piece silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) in human autopsy eyes.


Center for Intraocular Lens Research, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston.


Thirty eyes among those submitted to the center between 1986 and 1994 were evaluated. The globes were sectioned at the equatorial plane and photographed from a posterior view. Gross examination was performed to determine IOL type, fixation, centration, and additional pathology. The results were compared with those of a control group of autopsy eyes implanted with one-piece and three-piece poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) IOLs. The control group matched the silicone group in patient age, fixation site, and duration of implantation.


Twenty-three eyes (79.3%) had three-piece silicone IOLs and 7 eyes (20.7%), one-piece plate IOLs. Average patient age in the three-piece group was 77.3 years ± 6.7 (SD) and in the one-piece group, 74.3 ± 3.8 years. The 30 IOLs were symmetrically fixated in the bag. Average decentration of the three-piece and one-piece IOLs did not differ significantly, 0.37 ± 0.31 mm and 0.26 ± 0.13 mm, respectively (P = .37). There was also no significant difference in decentration between the silicone groups and the PMMA groups (P = .93).


Centration and fixation of silicone IOLs were equivalent to those of standard PMMA IOLs.
