Abstract Details


To evaluate the visual performance in pseudophakic patients with mix and match multifocal Tecnis MF.


Multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOL) were shown to minimize the problems related to presbyopia. Their weaknesses are due trade-off phenomenon. It was proposed that mix and match technique can significantly improve visual performance in pseudophakic MIOL patients.


The cataract surgery was conducted in both eyes of 12 patients, with the mean distance between surgeries of 2.8 months. All eyes were implanted mix and match AMO Tecnis MF MIOL: +2.75 D addition in the dominant eye and +3.25 D addition in the non-dominant eye. After 3 months patients’ satisfaction was also anlaysed with National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire 25 (NEI VFQ 25).


The pre-operative mean distance best corrected visual acuity (DBCVA) was 0.5 (increase to 0.8 after surgery) and mean near best corrected visual acuity (NBCVA) was Snellen 0.75/30 cm (increased to 0.5/30 cm). The difference between pre-operative DBCVA and pre-operative NBCVA and post-operative UDVA and UNVA was statistically significant by T test for dependent variables (p<0.05). None of patients in the survey VQE 25, did report any serious ailments associated with vision. 66.6% of binocular vision rated at more than good, vision for near at 91.6 % and intermediate distance at 82.2 % was good.


Mix and match technique seems to be effective MIOL technique leading to a very good bilateral uncorrected near visual acuity and relatively good bilateral uncorrected distance visual acuity. Patients’ satisfaction level was very high.
