Abstract Details


The aim of the current study is to report the accommodative response with a model of an accommodative intraocular lens (AIOL), the Akkolens Lumina.


VISSUM Corporación, División Oftalmología Universidad Miguel Hernández, Alicante,Spain


This study included 82 eyes of 58 patients with ages ranging between 43 and 85 years. All patients underwent cataract surgery followed by IOL implantation. According to the IOL implanted, two groups of patients were differentiated; group A, 59 eyes of 43 patients implanted with the Akkolens Lumina AIOL, and group B; 23 eyes of 15 patients implanted with the monofocal Acrysof SA60AT IOL. Distance and near visual acuities, defocus curve and the objective accommodation with the Grand Seiko WAM-5500 r Autorefractometer were measured. The follow-up was 12 months.


Statistical better near visual acuities were observed for group A in uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA) and corrected distance near visual acuity (CDNVA) (p<0.01). Statistical significant difference were observed between groups for defocus levels between -4.50 and -0.50D (p<0.01) with better values for group A. Statistical significant differences were detected between groups in the depth of focus calculated for 0.10, 0.20 and 0.4 visual acuity in logMAR scale (p<0.01) with high values for group A. Statistical significant differences were observed for the WAM accommodative stimuli of -2.00, -2.50 and -3.00D (p<0.01) with higher values for the AIOL.


The AIOL Akkolens Lumina restore the visual function after cataract surgery. This new AIOL demonstrated an accommodative response and a depth of focus higher than the monofocal control group.
