Abstract Details


To study visual outcome after implantation of toric multifocal intraocular lenses (Toric MFIOL)


Narayana Nethralaya, tertiary eye care center, Bangalore, India


Toric Multifocal IOLs were implanted in cataract patients with an astigmatism of 0.75 to 2.5D. Online calculator aided incision & IOL axis placement. Uncorrected distance & near vision, axis of IOL, contrast sensitivity & quality of vision were assessed


10eyes of 9 patients, with a mean age of 48.78± 13.59 yrs, were included. 8 eyes received the Acrysof IQ RESTOR Toric IOL (Alcon) & 2 received the ATLISA toric 909M (Zeiss). Mean preoperative astigmatism was 1.62D. At 6 wks, all eyes had an uncorrected vision of 6/6, 70% had N6 and 30% had N8 . An MTF of 30 and an OSI of 2 are the accepted normal. The Toric MFIOLs checked on the Optical Quality Analysis System showed a mean MTF of 42 cycles/deg& a mean Scatter Index of 1.4± 0.6. The contrast sensitivity checked with the FACT, were in the accepted normal range and mean angle of rotation was 2.6°.


Toric multifocal IOLs provided excellent uncorrected distance & near vision and the MTF and OSI are far better than normal, thus providing a quality of vision higher than the accepted standard for multifocal IOLs. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
