Abstract Details


To describe the refractive results of multifocal IOL implantation in patients with previous corneal refractive laser surgery for myopia.


Retina Total Eye Care, Driebergen, The Netherlands.


Prospective data collection of refractive and visual acuity results 3 months after implantation with a multifocal IOL (Acrysof Restor, Alcon) in patients who have had previous corneal refractive laser surgery for myopia (LASIK, LASEK or PRK).


Seventy-six eyes of 42 patients were included. Thirty-two eyes underwent lens extraction because of cataract, 44 eyes had a clear lens extraction. Mean post-operative UCDA was 0.14±0.03 LogMAR, median was 0.10 LogMAR. Mean post-operative SE was -0.31±0.10D. Fifty-five % reached ±0.50D, 86% reached ±1.0D. One eye needed an IOL-change because of a refractive surprise of -3.00D. There were no serious adverse events (no cystoid macular edema, no endophthalmitis)


Multifocal IOL implantation in eyes with previous corneal laser surgery for myopia gives good results in terms of refractive outcome and visual acuity.
