Abstract Details


To evaluate the long term refractive outcomes and the distance, intermediate and near visual acuity achieved by patients after bilateral implantation of a bioanalogic, polyfocal intraocular lens.


Asian Eye Institute, Philippines


This is a long term prospective study of patients who underwent FSL-assisted cataract surgery and binocular implantation of a polyfocal bioanalogic IOL (WIOL-CF by MEDICEM Technology s.r.o., Czech Republic). The polyfocal bioanalogic IOL is a new concept which resembles the natural crystalline lens by the material and optical design. Follow up examinations were performed 3, 6, 12 and 18 months after the surgery including uncorrected and corrected visual acuity for far, near and intermediate distances and subjective refraction.


15 patients (30 eyes) were followed up from 3 to 18 months. At the last visit, the mean sphere was +0.5D and mean cylinder was -0.6D, mean addition at near distance was of 1,1 D. Monocular UDVA is 0.045logMAR, UIVA 0.043 logMAR, UNVA 0.207 logMAR, DCNVA 0.190 logMAR, BCDVA 0.017 logMAR, DCIVA 0.041 logMAR and DCNVA 0.045 logMAR.


Study results at two years showed that refractive outcomes achieved were near emmetropia and monocular uncorrected distance, intermediate and near vision were very good. The femtosecond laser provides large, round capsulotomy, better centration and stable positioning. Consistency in surgical technique can help give consistent surgical outcomes. Polyfocal, bioanalogic intraocular lens provides seamless range of vision from distance through intermediate to near. It seems to be rational choice for presbyopia correction.
