Abstract Details


Evaluation of the CONCERTO study regarding the influence of postoperative monovision on visual acuity, photic phenomena and spectacle use after bilateral implantation of the Tecnis Symfony intraocular lens (IOL).


University Brest Hospital (France) Multicenter study sites from Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Spain and UK.


This is a subanalysis of the multicenter CONCERTO study after bilateral implantation of the Tecnis Symfony IOL (Johnson & Johnson Vision, Santa Ana, USA). The sample of eyes was divided into six groups according to the postoperative magnitude of monovision (difference between eyes: 0 D, 01.0 D. Distance, intermediate and near visual acuity as well as the incidence and severity of photic phenomena and the use of spectacles.


Binocular uncorrected visual acuity and spectacle independence across distances was highest between 0.5 and 1.0 D of monovision. The lowest incidence of halos and glare was found at monovision levels between 0.5 and 0.75 D


Mini-monovision with a difference of appr. 0.75 D between both eyes revealed the best visual outcome with regard to a balance between visual acuity, spectacle independence and visual symptoms.
