Abstract Details


To evaluate visual performance and patient satisfaction after implantation of an aspheric single piece multifocal lens with full diffractive pattern.


Clinique La Part Dieu Lyon (Lyon), Clinique Saint Gatien (Tour), Clinique du Val de Loire (Nevers)


Thirty-four patients underwent bilateral cataract surgery and implantation of Tecnis ZMB00. Patients were followed-up after 3 months. Major endpoints were uncorrected and best-corrected distance, intermediate and near vision. Use of spectacles was assessed for bright and dim light conditions. Satisfaction of patients and surgeons was documented.


After 3 months, patients achieved an uncorrected distance, intermediate and near vision (decimal notation) of 0.93 ± 0.12, 0.75 ± 0.25 and 0.96 ± 0.09, respectively. Best corrected vision (decimal notation) was 0.96 ± 0.08 for distance and 0.97 ± 0.07 for near (corrected for distance). Mild halos were reported by 9% of the patients and 1 patient reported moderate halos. Asked whether they would choose the same surgery again, 91% of the patients agreed and would also recommend the procedure to their friends and family. Glasses for distance were used by 3 patients, reading glasses by 2 patients, independent of the light conditions. When both, patients and surgeons, were asked whether the outcome has met their expectations the satisfaction score was the same, 8.9 ± 1,6 on a scale from 1 (not at all) to 10 (fully).


In this French evaluation, patients achieved excellent results with Tecnis ZMB00 at all distances. Photic phenomena were low and satisfaction of surgeons and patients was high. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
