Abstract Details


To assess outcomes of bilateral cataract surgery with WIOL-CF polyfocal bioanalogic lens implantation in patients with bilateral maculopathy in terms of uncorrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuity.


Prospective nonrandomized case series, each patient operated by single surgeon (author) at Očné oddelenie, Fakultná nemocnica s poliklinikou Žilina, Slovakia


10 patients (20 eyes) with cataract and mild maculopathy were assigned to have bilateral implantation of a WIOL-CF polyfocal bioanalogic lens (MEDICEM Technology s.r.o., Czech Republic) in the capsular bag. Maculopathies were stable at least one year with best corrected visual acuity was 20/63 or better and included lamellar macular hole, diabetic macular edema, branch retinal vein occlusion and dry age related macular degeneration. Dominant eye was targeted to emmetropia whereas non-dominant eye to -0,5 diopter refraction. Uncorrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuity were assessed at follow-up visits (2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months postoperatively).


Binocular 6 months postoperative outcomes were as follows: mean uncorrected distance visual acuity was 0,06±0,02 logMAR, mean uncorrected intermediate visual acuity was 0,32±0,04 logMAR and mean uncorrected near visual acuity was 0,22±0,13 logMAR. Macular pathologies remained morphologically stable.


Cataract extraction with binocular WIOL-CF implantation provides remarkable results and spectacle free vision in all distances even in patients with mild maculopathy.
