Abstract Details


To evaluate and compare contrast visual acuity with / without glare, quality of life, spectacle independence and dysphotopsia symptoms after cataract surgery with 2 different diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOLs) implantation.


Department of Ophthalmology, Marmara University Medical School, Istanbul, Turkey


This prospective study enrolled cataract patients having bilateral implantation of Acrysof Restor SN6AD1 apodized MIOL (n=15 patients) or Acriva Reviol MFM 611 MIOL (n=15 patients). Binocular uncorrected distance (UDVA), intermediate (UIVA) and near (UNVA) visual acuities; contrast sensitivity measurements with and without glare (CSV-1000 E), photopic and mesopic contrast sensitivity by Pelli-Robson test,) and patient satisfaction by National Eye Institute Refractive Error Quality of Life Instrument-42 (NEI-RQL-42) questionnaire were analyzed preoperatively and postoperatively at 1, 3, 6, 12 months.


There were no statistically significant postoperative differences in the visual acuity parameters (p>0.05). Contrast sensitivity measurements, spectacle independence and dysphotpsia symptoms were not significantly different between the 2 IOL groups. There were significant improvements in 12 subscales and the overall scale of NEI-RQL-42 at 12 months after surgery (p<0.0001). Neodymium: YAG laser capsulotomy was not required in any of the eyes.


Both MIOLs provided excellent and clinically relevant postoperative improvements in visual outcomes, contrast sensitivity, and quality of life.
