Abstract Details


Presbyopia and refractive errors are successfully treated with multifocal IOLs after cataract surgery. Drawbacks of these " bifocal" IOLs are only two effective foci (far and intermediate or near vision) and possible photopic phenomenons like halo and glare. We present our first clinical results.


Breyer eye surgery, Dusseldorf, Germany


This is a prospective study of 10 eyes where we implanted a trifocal, aspheric IOL (AT.LISA 839 MP, CZM) binocularly to correct presbyopia after cataract surgery. Subjective refraction and a defocus curve were done for evaluation of visual acuity in different distances. A patient questionnaire was also conducted to assess halo and glare.


Implantation of the trifocal IOL resulted in comparable or better far and near vision to conventional bifocal IOLs and improved additionally intermediate visual acuity. Patients astonishingly mentioned less photopic phenomena.


Because of very good near, intermediate and far vision this new trifocal IOL became a routine procedure for our patients with the desire to achieve spectacle free vision. We also recommend them to night drivers as well. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: ... receives consulting fees, retainer, or contract payments from a competing company
