PURPOSE: To study the change in postoperative position of an angulated, 3-piece, foldable acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs) and evaluate the effect of a sharp posterior optic edge compared with that of a round optic edge on the change in postoperative anterior chamber depth (ACD). SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. METHODS: This randomized intraindividual-comparison study comprised 104 eyes of 52 patients with age-related cataract. Patient received a sharp-edged Sensar OptiEdge AR40e IOL (Allergan Surgical) in 1 eye and a round-edged Sensar AR40 IOL in the other eye. Postoperative follow-up included ACD measurement by partial coherence interferometry and evaluation of the capsulorhexis area by standardized retroillumination photography at 1 day, 1 week, and 1 and 6 months. RESULTS: A decrease in ACD during the first postoperative week was followed by a small increase in ACD during the first 6 months. There was no significant difference between the sharp-edged group and the round-edged group. CONCLUSIONS: The angulated 3-piece acrylic IOLs showed significant forward movement over the first postoperative 6 months. Although the change in refraction was small, there was variability among patients. The sharp posterior optic edge design did not affect the IOL's movement in the capsular bag.
