Abstract Details


Clinical evaluation of functional results and quality of vision after bilateral implantation of a bioanalogic, polyfocal intraocular lens with extended depth of focus.

Patients which have underwent bilateral implantation of bioanalogic, polyfocal IOL (WIOL-CF Medicem) were examined one year after surgery including uncorrected and corrected visual acuity (VA) for far, near (40cm) and intermediate (70cm) distances on reading tables and subjective refraction. The quality of vision, glare, halos, spectacle independence and the personal satisfaction of the patients was assessed with a questionnaire.


One year follow up available for 62 patients (124 eyes) from 9 centres in this non-interventional, multicentre, prospective observational registry. Mean age 62.8±8.3 years, (median 63; 47-82 years). One year after bilateral implantation mean uncorrected distance VA was 0.96 (decimal) and 92% of patients are better than 0.8 (decimal). Mean value of uncorrected intermediate (70cm) and near (40cm) VA is 0.15±0.12 logMAR and 0.29±0.16 logMAR respectively. 88% patients did not need glasses for daily activities, driving and reading. 93% of patients is one year after surgery without serious/disturbing optical phenomena.


The WIOL-CF intraocular lens provides excellent and predictable functional results for far and intermediate vision and near vision within range of social reading for majority of patients. Excellent contrast sensitivity and low level of severe/disturbing glare and halo is a base for high patient satisfaction and spectacle independence rates. WIOL-CF should be considered as very promising IOL for refractive and cataract surgery, correcting presbyopia.
