Abstract Details


To compare the visual acuity and contrast sensitivity in eyes with Acrysof PanOptics multifocal IOL ( Alcon ) and eyes with the monofocal Acrysof IQ IOL.


Zora Eye Clinic, Sofia, Bulgaria


17 eyes had a phacoemulsification cataract extraction with an implantation of Panoptics trifocal IOL ( Alcon) in the capsular bag. Inclusion criteria were corneal astigmatism less than one diopter and no associated ocular disease. A complete ophthalmic evaluation was performed: uncorrected visual acuity, best spectacle corrected visual acuity, contract sensitivity six month postoperatively and patient satisfaction assessed by a questionnaire. Results were compared with those in 20 eyes with Acrysof monofocal IQ.


In the multifocal group 15 eyes ( 88.24%) obtained uncorrected distance visual acuity 20/25 or better( LogMAR <0.10) and an uncorrected best near visual acuity at 40cm of J3 or better ( logMAR 0.14). The multifocal group and the monofocal group had similar distance uncorrected and best corrected visual acuity. However the multifocal group had significantly better uncorrected near visual acuity. The mean contrast sensitivity values were better in the monofocal group (mean 1,9 Pelli Robson chart) than in the multifocal group. There was not significant difference in the overall patient satisfaction between the two groups.


The PanOptics trifocal IOL provided a satisfactory full range of vision- 90% of the patients achieved total spectacle independence. Contrast sensitivity was lower (though not clinically relevant) than in the monofocal group. Overall patient satisfaction was similar in both groups.
