Abstract Details


To examine a single-optic accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) visual performance by correlating IOL implanted eyes' defocus curve with the intraocular aberrometric profile and the impact on the quality of life (QOL)


Department of Ophthalmology (Oftalmar), Medimar International Hospital, Alicante, Spain


Prospective consecutive case series study including a total of 25 eyes of 14 patients with ages ranging between 52 and 79 years old. All cases underwent cataract surgery with implantation of the single-optic accommodating IOL Crystalens HD (Bausch & Lomb). Distance and near visual acuity outcomes, intraocular aberrations, the defocus curve and QOL (NEI VFQ-25) were evaluated 3 months after surgery.


A significant improvement in distance visual acuity was found postoperatively (p=0.02). Mean postoperative LogMAR uncorrected near visual acuity was 0.44±0.23 (20/30). 60 % of eyes had a postoperative addition between 0 and 1.5 D. The defocus curve showed an area of maximum visual acuity for the levels of defocus corresponding to distance and intermediate vision (-1 to +0.5 D). Postoperative intermediate visual acuity correlated significantly some QOL indices and one power vector component of manifest cylinder. Postoperative distance-corrected near visual acuity correlated significantly with age (r=0.65, p<0.01).


This accommodating IOL is able to restore the distance visual function as well as to provide an improvement in intermediate and near vision with a significant impact on patientÂ’s QOL. Age and astigmatism are limiting factors for the outcomes with this type of accommodating IOL. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
