Abstract Details


To register and analyse changes in vision and Quality Of Life in patients with AMD after implantation of the Scharioth Macula Lens (SML).


Eye Hospital Denmark - Charlottenlund, Denmark


Consecutive non-randomized 6 months follow-up study of Quality Of Life by VFQ-25 questionary and vision in 25 patients with AMD.


Far vision was unchanged. Near vision measured by the Radner test improved from Radner 8.3 to Radner 5.8 (P<0.01). Quality Of Life assessed by VFQ-25 questionary showed a significant improvement from VFQ-score 868.5 to VFQ-score 1106.5 (P<0.01). Especially in the group with previous legal blindness compared with the group with partial sight.


Near vision improved according to the preoperative predictable measurements, whereas far vision was unchanged. Quality Of Life surprisingly improved in the group with legal blindness i.e a bettering of daily activities.
