Abstract Details


To evaluate visual quality after contralateral implantation of the TECNIS diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) with +2.75- and +4.0-diopter near additions.


Asan medical center


Twenty patients who were implanted with the add power +2.75 diopters (D) and the +4.00 D contralaterally were included in this study. The distance, intermediate (50 centimeters) and near (40 centimeters), uncorrected and corrected binocular visual acuity (VA), contrast sensitivity, depth of focus, and patient satisfaction were assessed more than 1 month postoperatively.


Postoperatively, the mean uncorrected (corrected) binocular logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution VA levels were: distance, -0.120 (-0.163) logMAR; intermediate, 50 centimeters, 0.037 (0.006) logMAR; and near, 40 centimeters, 0.067 (-0.040) logMAR. The depth of focus had a smooth curve with mild double peaks. The mean contrast sensitivity was normal at all spatial frequencies.


Contralateral implantation of multifocal IOL with +2.75 and +4.0-D additions takes advantage of the good uncorrected near VA provided by both IOLs and may be an option for patients who require a broader range of good uncorrected VA at near and intermediate .
