Because of the complexity of dysphotopsia pathogenesis, in0.2% to 1.0% of cases symptoms might persist or onlypartially resolve. Negative dysphotopsia occurs with IOLsof different materials with both rounded and squared edges.The current treatment options for severe persistent negativedysphotopsia are IOL exchange with placement of a second-ary IOL in the bag or in the ciliary sulcus, implantation of asupplementary IOL, reverse optic capture, and Nd:YAGanterior capsulectomy; however, in some cases the symp-toms might persist after treatment. Supplementaryimplantation of a round-edged 6.5 mm Sulcoflex 653 LIOL (Rayner Intraocular Lenses Ltd.) can successfully treatnegative dysphotopsias in approximately 70% of cases.
