Abstract Details


to evaluate visual acuity, defocus curve, contrast sensitivity and patient satisfaction after bilateral implantation of a multifocal IOL (MIOL) with an additional power of 1.5 diopters (LS-313 MF15) compared to a monofocal IOL


Ophthalmology Unit, department of Neurosciences, University of Verona, Verona Italy


40 eyes of 20 patients (group 1) affected by senile cataract undergoing bilateral facoemulsification and implanted with LS-313 MF15 IOL were enrolled. All patients were submitted to a post operatively follow-up of 6 months during which were evaluated: uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuity (UNDVA/BCDVA); uncorrected and corrected near visual acuity (UNVA/CNVA) at 30 cm, uncorrected and corrected intermediate visual acuity (UIVA/CIVA) at 70 cm. It were also assessed contrast sensibility (CS), defocus curve and patients satisfaction (National Eye Institute questionnaire NEI RQL-42). The group 1 was compared with a group control of 40 eyes (group 2) implanted with a monofocal IOL


Both groups achieved an excellent uncorrected distance visual acuity (p>0.05). The low additional MIOL showed good results in terms of near and intermediate visual acuity. The LS-313 MF15 IOL achieved a good visual quality in terms of CS and patients satisfaction. Patients referred a low amount of subjective symptoms


looking at our results, LS-313 MF15 IOL can be considered a good option in normal routine cataract surgery in patients willing a good visual acuity at intermediate distances without compromising the quality of vision
