Abstract Details


To prospectively evaluate postoperative visual and refractive parameters in a randomized clinical trial of subjects bilaterally implanted with the Finevision (micro F) trifocal IOL or the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +3.


University Eye Clinic Maastricht, Maastricht University Medical Center, Maastricht, The Netherlands.


22 adult subjects (44 eyes) with cataract and ? 1.00D of corneal astigmatism were randomized to receive bilateral implantation of either Finevision (micro F) trifocal (Physiol, Liege) IOLs or AcrySof IQ ReSTOR +3 add (Alcon, Fort Worth) IOLs. Refractive and visual outcomes were measured preoperatively and postoperatively (1 and 3 months).


At 1 month postop, the mean uncorrected binocular near visual acuity under photopic conditions at 400 cm (far), 70 cm (intermediate) and 40 cm (near) with the ReSTOR +3 IOL (n= 26) was -0.05 ± 0.06, 0.36±0.11 and 0.07±0.06 logMAR respectively, and with the Finevision IOL (n=18) -0.01 ±0.10, 0.29±0.11 and 0.06±0.11 logMAR respectively, with no statistically significant difference. The 1 month post op MRSE was 0.04 ± 0.17 D for the ReSTOR IOL group and 0.00 ± 0.30 D for the Finevision IOL group. Three months results will be discussed during the meeting.


Good distance, intermediate and near vision was measured with both multifocal IOLs. The 1 month post op results indicate no significant difference in patients implanted with either the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +3 or the Finevision (micro F) IOL.
