Abstract Details


To compare intraocular straylight between glistening-free and conventional intraocular lenses in pseudophakic eyes.


Department of Ophthalmology, The Catholic University of Korea Yeouido St. Mary's Hospital, Korea. Patients awaiting cataract surgery at St. Mary's Hospital between April, 2012 and April, 2013 were recruited for the study.


Straylight values were measured prospectively in 21 eyes with glistening-free pseudophakic lenses (group A, model enVista™, Bausch & Lomb, Inc., USA) and 79 eyes with conventional hydrophilic pseudophakic lenses (group B, model Akreos MI-60, Bausch & Lomb, Inc., USA). Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and straylight were measured preoperatively and 1 month and 2 months postoperatively using C-quant straylight meter (Oculus GmbH, Wetzlar, Germany).


There were no statistically significant differences of BCVA preoperatively or 2 months postoperatively between the 2 groups (p > 0.05). BCVA and straylight significantly improved after the operation (p < 0.05). The mean straylight values were 1.43 ± 0.12 (log[s]) and 1.41 ± 0.16 (log[s]) for group A, and 1.33 ± 0.61 (log[s]) and 1.40 ± 0.82 (log[s]) for group B at postoperative 1 month and 2 months, respectively, with no statistical significance between the 2 groups (p > 0.05).


In terms of straylight, glistening-free intraocular lenses were not beneficial. Although straylight was not statistically significant, other correlations between glistening and visual function should be investigated.
