Abstract Details


To compare the outcome of two monofocal intraocular lenses after phacoemulsification.


Tertiary eye care centre


In a prospective randomized trial, 200 eyes of patients with age-related cataract underwent phacoemulsification and implantation of either the AcrySof  IQ SN60WF or ACRIOL EC lens and were followed up for a period of 1 year.The main outcome measures were Uncorrected and best corrected visual acuity for distance (UCVA,BCVA) and near (UNVA,BNVA), contrast sensitivity, glare acuity, ocular aberrations,  incidence of posterior capsule opacification (PCO), and Visual Function Index (VF-14) questionnaire results.


There was no statistical difference (p>0.05) between the two IOLs in UCVA, BCVA, contrast sensitivity, glare acuity, and rate of PCO formation after cataract surgery. Ocular aberrations including root mean square aberrations, higher order aberrations and spherical aberrations were significantly higher in ACRIOL group as compared to ACRYSOF group (p<0.05). However, both IOL types improved the aspects of patients’ vision-related quality of life.


Both the IOLs are comparable in visual outcome, complications and posterior capsular opacification rates and vision-related quality of life.
