Position-dependent accommodative shift of retropupillary fixated iris-claw lenses

Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 05/10/2012

Significant changes in anterior chamber depth and refraction due to the iris–claw lens shift were found, depending on head position. The phenomenon of pseudophakic accommodation is explained by pseudo–myopia and pseudo–hyperopia. A considerable influence on visual acuity depending on patients´ head position could not be verified.
