Abstract Details


To evaluate visual outcomes with bilateral minimonovision implantation of a new non-diffractive extended vision intraocular lens (Alcon DFT015)


Multicenter, multicountry clinical trial sponsored by Alcon


Subjects were bilaterally implanted with DFT015 targeting emmetropia (± 0.5 D). Based upon manifest refraction spherical equivalent (MRSE) at 6 months, subjects were categorized as minimonovision if MRSE difference between eyes was ≥0.5 D and MRSE in at least one eye was ≤-0.25 D. Binocular uncorrected distance (UDVA), intermediate (UIVA), and near visual acuity (UNVA), spectacle use, and quality of vision (QoV, McAlinden et al) were assessed. Additionally, spot images from a high dynamic range halo bench (4.5 mm aperture) were collected from simulated monovision of DFT015 with one IOL set to -0.25 D, -0.5 D, and -0.75 D.


Of the 151 subjects bilaterally implanted with DFT015 at 6mo, 19 subjects met the definition of minmonovision. Compared to the non-monovision group, UIVA and UNVA improved nearly a line (-0.08 logMAR) and with no meaningful change in UDVA (0.02 logMAR). Twenty percent more subjects with minimonovision reported never needing spectacles for intermediate and near tasks. Bench halos remained monofocal-like for the monovision simulations and the % not bothered by visual disturbances remained high in the minimonovision group (e.g. 73% not bothered by starbursts in both minimonovision and non-monovision groups).


Bilateral implantation of this non-diffractive extended vision IOL with minimonovision improves near and intermediate vision without affecting distance vision while maintaining the monofocal-like visual disturbance profile.
