Abstract Details


To compare the visual outcome, contrast sensitivity and wavefront analysis of patients that underwent cataract surgery and implantation of Tecnis® ZMB00 multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) with those who received the ReSTOR® SND1T toric multifocal lens.


Hospital de Egas Moniz – Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental


Prospective clinical trial of 10 eyes that received the multifocal IOL and 12 eyes that received the multifocal toric IOL after phacoemulsification. Over a 3-month follow-up period, the main outcome measures were spherical equivalent, distance visual acuity, near visual acuity and higher-order aberrations measured with a dynamic retinoscopy aberrometer. Optical quality was also accessed by analyzing the in vivo modulation transfer function (MTF) and point-spread function (expressed as Strehl ratio).


Both uncorrected near, distance visual acuities and aberrometry analysis were similar with both groups of intraocular lenses. Also, there was no statistically significant difference between contrast sensitivities in the 2 types of IOLs.


Both studied intraocular lenses promoted excellent near and distance postoperative visual acuity. The Toric multifocal IOL presented no statistically significant difference from the spherical multifocal IOL in terms of higher-order aberrations or optical quality. Further studies with more patients are needed to confirm these results. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
