Abstract Details


To compare the visual outcomes and subjective quality of vision achieved 3 months and 12 months following bilateral implantation of a rotationally asymmetric multifocal intraocular lens (IOL).


Cathedral Eye Clinic, Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK


The study enrolled 100 patients (200 eyes) implanted with the Lentis Mplus multifocal IOL after phacoemulsification. Patients were assessed 3 months and 12 months postoperatively. Refraction, uncorrected (UDVA) and best-corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities, uncorrected intermediate (UIVA) and near (UNVA) visual acuities, and a quality of vision (QoV) questionnaire were evaluated at each postoperative assessment.


The mean monocular UDVA was -0.06 ± 0.10 logMAR at 3 months and -0.05 ± 0.10 logMAR at 12 months (P= .121). The mean monocular UIVA was 0.37 ± 0.10 logMAR and 0.39 ± 0.12 logMAR at the respective postoperative assessments (P= .176). At the 3 month postoperative assessment the mean monocular UNVA was 0.14 ± 0.11 logMAR and 0.15 ± 0.10 logMAR at the 12 month assessment (P= .066). There was a significant improvement in quality of vision between the 3 month and 12 month postoperative assessments (P=< .001).


The asymmetric multifocal IOL provided a high level of postoperative quality of vision at the early postoperative assessment with further improvement at 12 months where patients reported a significantly enhanced quality of vision score. The IOL displayed excellent distance, intermediate and near visual acuity at both postoperative assessments.
