Purpose

Purpose

  • To report the postoperative outcome and patient satisfaction with the new diffractive multifocal IOL used in eyes which underwent phacoemulsification


Material methods

Material / Methods

  • This prospective study included patients with age-related cataract and unsatisfactory correction with glasses.

  • Information collected included uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) for near and distance, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and spherical equivalent (SE) before and after the surgery, and patient satisfaction.


Material methods1

Material / Methods

TECNIS™ Product Specifications (Model ZM900)

  • Modified prolate anterior surface

  • Square-edge optic

  • Diffractive multifocal posterior surface

  • UV-absorbing 6.0 mm optic

  • Polyvinylidene flouride (PVDF), CapC haptics

  • 5 D to 34 D in 0.5 D increments

  • 3-piece foldable for posterior capsular bag fixation


Results

Results

  • Six hundred and forty four eyes of 363 patients were enrolled in the study and underwent implantation with the Tecnis multifocal IOL.

  • Of the 363 patients, there were 245 (68%) females and 118 (32%) males.

  • The mean age of the patients was 62 years, range from 47 to 91 years old (SD: ± 8.7)

  • All postoperative visual acuity results were obtained at the 3-month postoperative visit.


Results1

Results

  • Preoperatively, the mean distance UCVA of these eyes was 0.25 (20/80) (range 0.01 to 1.00, SD = ± 0.36).

  • After follow-up of 3 months the mean UCVA was 0.8 (20/25) (range 0.13 t0 1.00), significantly better than before surgery (p<0.001).

  • After a follow-up of 3 months a distance UCVA of 20/25 or better was achieved by 74.2% (478 of 644 eyes), and a distance UCVA of 20/40 or better was achieved by 94.5% (609 of 644 eyes).


Results2

Results

  • Preoperatively, the mean distance BCVA of these eyes was 0.67 (20/30) (range 0.05 to 1.0, SD = ± 0.29).

  • After follow-up of 3 months the mean BCVA was 1.0 (20/20) (range 0.33 to 1.00), significantly better than before surgery (p<0.001).

  • The average SE at referral of these eyes was + 0.95 D (range -12.5 to + 12.25 D, SD: ± 2.28).

  • Postoperatively, after a follow-up of 3 months the average SE was -0.10 D (range -2.25 to +1.75, SD: ± 0.48), significantly better than before referral (p<0.001).


Results3

Results

  • After follow-up of 3 months the mean uncorrected near vision acuity (UCNVA) was J1 (range to J1 to J4).

  • After follow-up of 3 months a near UCVA of J1 or better was achieved by 93.7% (604 of 644 eyes), and a near UCVA of J3 or better was achieved by 99.8% (643 of 644 eyes).

  • In addition, 96.2% and 94.3% of the patients achieved spectacle independence for distance and near vision, respectively.

  • Visual phenomena was observed by 33.3% of the patients. Glare and halos were reported as severe by 3.5% of patients, moderate by 14.6%, and mild by 15.1% of patients.


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • The TECNIS diffractive multifocal IOL demonstrated excellent near VA without compromising distance vision. Spectacle independence and patient satisfaction were high, whereas unwanted photic phenomena were clinically acceptable.
