Abstract Details


To evaluate the visual performance and patient satisfaction after implantation of the Ophtec Precizon monofocal toric IOL (Ophtec, Groningen, The Netherlands) in patients with age-related cataract.


Two non-academic general hospitals OLVG Amsterdam and Flevoziekenhuis Almere, The Netherlands


This prospective study enrolled 37 eyes of 22 patients (mean age: yrs 65 ± 23 years (range 42-86 yrs) with pre-existing corneal astigmatism of 1.5 to 4.0 diopters (D). The rotational stability of the toric IOL was evaluated using slitlamp examination. Other main study outcomes were assessed 1 week, 3 weeks and 3 months postoperatively and included uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), subjective refraction and patient satisfaction. The efficacy of the astigmatism correction was evaluated by vector analysis (J0, J45). Visual acuity before surgery, at one week after surgery, at 3 weeks, and if present at 3 months.


Three months postoperatively mean residual refractive cylinder was –0.5 ± 0.5 D. 98% of the eyes were within ± 0.5 D for J0 and J45. Mean UDVA improved significantly from 0.4 ± 0.7 Snellen preoperatively to 1.0 ± 0.3 Snellen postoperatively. All eyes achieved 20/20 or better including 98 % of eyes achieved 20/20 or better. All patients stated that they would choose the same lens model again. No postoperative complications were reported.


Implantation of the Ophtec Precizon toric IOL was safe and effective in reducing low to high pre-existing corneal astigmatism and provided good refractive outcomes which led to high levels of patient satisfaction. The Ophtec Precizon toric IOL provides an added value by the increased good tolerance to postoperative residual refractive errors and good tolerance for little off-axis location which is a key factor for ensuring patient satisfaction.
