[Figure 1] shows ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) of a 7-year-old child operated for post–open globe injury cataract. A three-piece hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) was implanted in the sulcus and optic captured behind anterior and posterior capsular openings. EF represents the ends of optic; BC represents its projection on the line AD, which is the line joining two diametrically opposite points of the scleral spur ring (identification is subjective and requires physician expertise). Ideally, AB and CD should be equal for a well-centered IOL. (AB − CD)/2 will give decentration of IOL toward point D. We thus describe a novel technique of calculating IOL decentration using UBM (subject to UBM availability).
|Figure 1: Ultrasound biomicroscopy B-scan of pseudophakia. Optic edge is at 2.589 mm (AB-inbuilt calipers) from one end of the scleral spur, and at 2.194 mm (CD) from the diametric opposite scleral spur point. (AB - CD)/2 = 0.1975 mm gives the objective amount of intraocular lens shift in this plane toward point D|
