Abstract Details


To evaluate and compare the visual outcomes and quality of life after bilateral implantation of hydrophobic trifocal IOL and hydrophilic aspheric bifocal IOL


This prospective study was conducted at a Dr Arvind Vision Care eye hospital in Chennai, India


In a prospective study 60 patients were divided into 2 groups. Group 1 consisting of 30 patients was implanted hydrophobic trifocal acrylic lens in both eyes and group 2 were implanted hydrophilic aspheric bifocal IOL in both eyes. Visual acuity, contrast sensitivity was recorded at 1 month and 3 months. Quality of life (QOL) was assessed with National Eye Institute Vision Related Quality of Life Instrument (NEI-VRQOL) at 3 months after the second surgery.


The mean spherical equivelants were+0.12 D and +0.18 D in Group 1 and Group 2 respectively at 3 months.The contrast sensitivity at mesopic condition was favourable for bifocal group. (p <0.05) The quality of life assessment were similar across all sub scales of VRQOL.


The trifocal and bifocal lenses provide good quality of vision and the VRQOL shows no difference between these 2 lenses.
