Abstract Details


To compare bilateral reading performance within the first 12 months after implantation of 2 intraocular lens (IOL) models.


Marmara University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology


Patients had bilateral phacoemulsification and implantation of Acriva Reviol MFM 611 IOL (Group 1) and Acrysof Restor SN6AD1 apodized multifocal IOL (Group 2). Bilateral reading performance was evaluated preoperatively and postoperatively using MNREAD acuity charts. The reading speed, critical print size, and reading acuity were measured binocularly at 40 cm and 60 cm. Binocular uncorrected visual acuities at far (UDVA), intermediate (UIVA) and near (UNVA) were also measured.


Each IOL model was implanted in 30 eyes (15 patients). There were no statistically significant postoperative differences in mean UDVA (Group 1, 0.04±0.07; Group 2, 0.01±0.03; p= 0.103), mean UIVA (0.11±0.06 and 0.13±0.05, respectively; p=0.251) and mean UNVA (0.01±0.05 and 0.01±0.04, respectively; p=0.464). There were statistically significant postoperative differences in mean reading acuity (Group 1, 0.07±0.10; Group 2, 0.02±0.08; p=0.019) at 40 cm. When tested at 60 cm, reading acuity (0.13±0.10 and 0.21±0.11, respectively; p=0.021) and critical print size were significantly better in the Group 1 than in the Group 2 (0.25±0.13 and 0.39±0.16, respectively; p=0.005).


Implantation of the multifocal IOL significantly improved reading performance. Intermediate vision was better with Acriva Reviol MFM 611 IOL (Group 1) and near vision was better with Acrysof Restor SN6AD1 (Group 2).
