Abstract Details


Clinical evaluation of functional results and quality of vision after bilateral implantation of a bioanalogic, polyfocal intraocular lens WIOL-CF


Department of Ophthalmology, T. Bata Regional Hospital Zlín, Czech Republic Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital Kralovske Vinohrady and 3rd Medical Faculty Prague, Czech Republic


The WIOL-CF bioanalogic, polyfocal IOL (Medicem) were implanted bilaterally after phacoemulsification with 2 weeks between the first and second eye implantation. Patient with any other ophthalmic pathology were excluded. Follow-up examinations were performed two weeks three and six months after surgery including uncorrected and corrected visual acuity (VA) for far, near (40cm) and intermediate (70cm) distances on reading tables, subjective refraction and contrast sensitivity under different lighting conditions. The quality of vision, glare, halos, spectacle independence and the personal satisfaction of the patients was assessed with a questionnaire.


To the January 2014 has been enrolled 52 patients (104 eyes) from 13 centres in this non-interventional, multicentre, prospective observational registry. Mean age 64.1 years, (median 65; 48-82 years). Six months after bilateral implantation mean uncorrected distance VA was 0.96(decimal) and 94% of patients are better than 0.8 (decimal). Median value of uncorrected intermediate (70cm) and near (40cm) VA is J1 and J2 respectively and 83% of patients are better than J5 on near. Patients contrast sensitivity photopic and mesopic results are excellent and above population norm for age to 55 years. 85% patients did not need glasses for daily activities, driving and reading. 91% of patients is 6 months after surgery without serious/disturbing optical phenomena.


The WIOL-CF intraocular lens provides excellent and predictable functional results for far and intermediate vision and near vision within range of social reading for majority of patients. The best corrected values confirm safety of polyfocal optics. Excellent contrast sensitivity and low level of severe/disturbing glare and halo is a base for high patient satisfaction and spectacle independence rates. WIOL-CF should be considered as very promising IOL for refractive and cataract surgery, correcting presbyopia.
