Abstract Details


To compare visual performance of the Symfony IOL in patients who have never undergone previous refractive surgery versus those who have undergone previous LASIK/PRK/LASEK


Optimax and Ultralase Eye Clnics


50 consecutive refractive lens exchange patients implanted with Symfony IOL bilaterally were compared with 30 Refractive lens Exchange patients who had previous laser vision correction (LVC). Follow Up at 1 week, 2, 3 & 6 months post op was performed. Monocular and binocular uncorrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuity was measured. Patient satisfaction was also documented.


Post op UDVA (decimal) was 1.01 +/- 0.16 in the non LVC Symfony group vs 0.93 +/-0.17 in the prior LVC group. Intermediate Visual acuity (decimal)was 0.9 +/- 0.21 in the non LVC versus 0.80 +/- 0.31 in the LVC group. Near vision (decimal) was 0.6 +/- 0.16 in the non LVC group vs 0.55 +/- 0.25 in the LVC group. 94.4% of non LVC patients were spectacle independent at all distances versus 80% in the Prior LVC group.


Post LVC patients remain a challenging refractive group when considering Presbyopia IOL correction. Careful patient selection can enable good refractive outcomes and spectacle independence.
