Abstract Details

Purpose:

Clinical evaluation of optical phenomena after implantation of different premium IOLs for cataract, presbyopia and astigmatism correction. Aim of this study is to objectify the amount of photic phenomena perceived by patients and allow a comparison of different IOL models and designs.

Setting:

International Vision Correction Research Centre (IVCRC), Department of Ophthalmology, University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany

Methods:

Assessment of optical phenomena, in particular halos and glare, with a computer-based simulator (Halo and Glare Simulator, Eyeland Design Network GmbH, Vreden, Germany) as well as an optical symptoms questionnaire in patients who underwent cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange with additional presbyopia or astigmatism correction compared to patients with monofocal IOLs. In this ongoing prospective clinical study patients are examined binocularly between 2 and 4 months after surgery.

Results:

Preliminary data shows that monofocal IOLs can induce optical phenomena, although to a lesser extent compared to multifocal IOLs. Similar findings were detected with the questionnaire. More results will be presented.

Conclusions:

Photic phenomena induced by IOLs especially in mesopic lighting conditions may limit patient comfort and quality of life in everyday situations and attenuate overall visual acuity. However, photic phenomena are – to a certain degree – also present in monofocal IOLs.
