MOTTA, César et al. Scharioth Macula Lens (SML). Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2019, vol.78, n.5, pp.342-344.  Epub Nov 04, 2019. ISSN 0034-7280.


In this review we critically evaluated the publications on the intraocular implant of the Scharioth Macular Lens (SML) in patients with advanced stages of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).


The literature search was done in Pubmed and Google Scholar database, with the term dry AMD, devices and Scharioth Macula Lens. We use prospective, retrospective articles or case reports published in English or Portuguese in the last five years under these terms.


A total of 19 articles were found, all in English. Of these, 5 were related to complications of cataract surgery and another to Exudative Macular Degeneration. Therefore, 13 references were used for this review.


Scharioth Macula Lens was developed for pseudophakic eyes with AMD and has also been used in patients with other maculopathies. The initial results reported are encouraging.

Keywords : Macular degeneration; Lens, intraocular; Lens implantation, intraocular; Visual acuity.
