Abstract Details


To compare the clinical results of Lentis Comfort (LS-313 MF15, Oculentis, Berlin, Germany, +1.5 diopter, group1) and Lentis M plus (LS-313 MF30, Oculentis, Berlin, Germany, +3.0 diopter, group 2) intraocular lens implantation in patients with unilateral cataract surgery.


Asan Medical Center, Seoul, South Korea


55 patients (55 eyes) aged 49 to 76 years who underwent unilateral cataract surgery without complications were included. Near, intermediate, long distance visual acuity and contrast sensitivity were measured before, 1 and 5 months after the surgery. Patient satisfaction was analyzed using the questionnaire 5 months postoperatively.


21 eyes in group 1 and 34 eyes in group 2 were included in the study. Both groups showed a significant improvement in postoperative uncorrected visual acuity and best corrected visual acuity (p<0.01). The mean near visual acuity (40cm) was significantly better in group 2 (1 month postoperatively: p=0.013, 5 months postoperatively: p=0.051). The mean intermediate visual acuity (70cm) was significantly better in group 1 (1 month postoperatively: p=0.060, 5 months postoperatively: p=0.044). The contrast sensitivity was not significantly different between the two groups. Glare (p=0.044) and halo (p=0.029) were significantly lower in group 1.


A rotationally asymmetric refractive mutifocal intraocular lens with a lower refractive power (1.5 diopter) showed a good visual acuity at a long and intermediate distance, relatively little light glare and halo symptoms than the lens with a high refractive power (3.0 diopters).
