Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate 'Mix-and-Match' multifocal IOL (implanting a refractive IOL (ReZoom™) in the dominant eye and a diffractive IOL (Tecnis®) in the contralateral eye) and bilateral diffractive IOL (Tecnis®) cataract surgery.

Setting:

C.M.A Centro di Microchirurgia Ambulatoriale, Via Donizetti 24, Monza (Milan)

Methods:

Fifty -two cataract surgery patients received a Rezoom™ in one eye and a Tecnis® in the fellow eye. Careful pupil evaluation and identification of the dominant eye was performed. Dominant eye with pupil diameter inferior to 5.2 mm always received a Rezoom™. Sixteen cataract surgery patients received bilateral Tecnis®.

Results:

Seven years postoperatively, mean monocular UCVA was 0.86 ± 0.13 (Tecnis®), and 0.80 ± 0.24 (Rezoom™). Mean uncorrected binocular near vision was J 1.57, monocular near vision was better with Tecnis® (p< .05). Bilateral diffractive (Tecnis®) impiantation mean monocular UCVA was 0.95 ± 0.08 and binocular near vision was J 1.50.

Conclusions:

Mix-and-Match diffractive/refractive and bilateral diffractive/diffractive approach provided highly satisfactory uncorrected distance, intermediate and near vision.
