Abstract Details


to evaluate visual acuity, defocus curve, contrast sensitivity and patient satisfaction after bilateral and monolateral implantation of a multifocal IOL (MIOLs) with an additional power of 1.5 diopters (LS-313 MF15) in patients scheduled for standard cataract surgery without any selection except for macular function


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


21 patients (38 eyes) with cataract undergoing bilateral (17) and monolateral (4) facoemulsification and implantated with LS-313 MF15 IOL. Patient selection was based only on the presence of a good macular function and absence of particular ocular diseases such corneal irregularity and opacity, iris and zonular defects. Every patients 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 determined contrast sensibility (CS), defocus curve and patients satisfaction (National Eye Institute questionnaire NEI RQL-42).


All patient achieved an average uncorrected distance visual acuity of 0.95 (Snellen) with a residual spherical equivalent refractive error of -0,15 ¬ ± 0,3 and an uncorrected near visual acuity at 30 cm of 5,6 ± 2,15 (Jaeger) and 4,6 ± 2,7 (Jaeger) at 70 cm . Defocus curve and contrast sensitivity showed a good level of spectacle independence and a good quality of vision in all cases. The LS-313 MF15 IOL implantation achieved excellent results in terms of uncorrected distance and intermediate visual acuity while a mean addiction of +1 D is requested for near vision. Patients reported not significant visual disturbance, spectacle independence and high satisfaction


the LS-313 MF15 IOL can be considered a valid option as a standard IOL in normal routine cataract surgery without the necessity of a particular patients selection and counseling typical of the other MIOLs.
