Abstract Details


To compare visual outcomes and quality of life with ReSTOR versus monofocal IOLs


Hospital Universitario Fundación Alcorcon


In this randomized, parallel, double-masked 6-month study, patients at 24 sites in Europe received implantation with monofocal or multifocal IOLS. Primary endpoints were % patients achieving visual acuity of 0.1 logMAR, spectacle independence, and quality-of-life (NEI-RQL-42 5).


Patients (n=98 and n=108 in mono- and multifocal arms) were mean age 70.4, 58.7% female, and 95.6% White. Higher number of patients in the multifocal versus monofocal arm achieved post-operation uncorrected visual acuity of 0.1 logMAR or better (45.7% vs. 2.1%, p<0.0001) at all distances. Spectacle independence was 73.3% with multifocals vs. 25.3% with monofocals (p<0.0001). Of the 5 NEI-RQL-42 domains assessed, in ‘dependence of correction’, multifocals fared better than monofocals (mean LS of 83.67 vs 46.34, p<0.0001).


Six months post-implantation of Acrysof ReSTOR vs. monofocal IOLs showed that patients with multifocal IOLs had better visual acuity and spectacle independence. Patients on multifocal IOLs reported a better quality-of-life.
