Abstract Details


To assess refractive and aberrometric results after the implantation of a new hydrophobic acrylic IOL.


Eye Center, Humanitas Research Hospital, Rozzano – Milan - Italy


We implanted Clareon®, a new hydrophobic acrylic IOL in 17 cataract eyes of 17 patients. This IOL features a specifically designed edge to minimize the potential for edge glare and positive dysphotopsias, as well as reducing the occurrence of PCO.


We implanted the IOL in 17 eyes of 17 patients. Preoperative refraction was +0.20D±2.58D sph and -1.48D±1.02D cyl (-0.39D±2.26D SE). Refractive target was -0.31±0.85 (range: -2.50D to 0,00D). One month postoperatively, mean values were as follows: UCVA 0.60±0.32, BSCVA 0.86±0.20 with -0.01D±1.44 D sph and -1.22D±1.19D cyl (-0.63D±1.30D SE). Internal spherical aberration (SA) decreased significantly (p < .05) for a 4 mm pupil (from 0.13± 0.16 μ to 0.06±0.05 μ). Corneal SA remained unchanged. No patient complained of dysphotopsias or glare.


The studied IOL provided reliable correction of defect, as well as reduction of internal SA. No dysphotopsias or glare were reported at one month.
