Abstract Details



Purpose:

To compare visual function and patient satisfaction outcomes after phaco-emulsification and implantation of the multifocal Acrysof Restor SN6AD1 +3.0 D (Hybrid aspheric) Intraocular lens (IOL) in a Tertiary Eye Care Centre in Indian population

Setting:

Tertiary Eye Institute in South India

Methods:

Retrospective interventional study of a cohort of 48 eyes, who underwent cataract extraction for senile cataract, and were implanted with a multifocal intraocular lens. The data collected included demographic details, intra and post-operative complications, pre and post-operative uncorrected and spectacle corrected distance and near visual acuities. Visual acuities were tested using Snellen’s charts for distance and Jaegers type charts for near vision, and converted to logarithmic equivalents. Ptient satisfaction was analyzed using data regarding subjective symptoms of glare or unsatisfactory vision and overall patient-perceived satisfaction.

Results:

There were 28 males and 20 female patients, with mean age of 55.45 (range 37 to 95 years). 22 patients (22 eyes) underwent unilateral surgery, whereas 13 patients (26 eyes) underwent sequential surgery. Mean uncorrected distance visual acuity (logarithm of minimum angle of resolution) at one week and one month post-operatively was 0.058 ±0.013 and 0.056 ±0.013 respectively. The uncorrected visual acuity was 20/30 or better in 46 eyes (95 %) at one week and one month post-operatively. The distance uncorrected near visual acuities were Jaegers type 2 (J2) or better in all eyes. None of the patients required near addition for improving their reading. No complications or subjective symptoms of glare were noted in any patient. All patient reported positive satisfaction criteria.

Conclusions:

In our cohort, multifocal intraocular lens was effective in providing excellent uncorrected near vision in all patients and was not associated with any distressing subjective symptoms like glare. The overall objective and subjective visual outcomes were good.
