Abstract Details


To evaluate optical and functional outcomes and patients satisfaction after Implantation of a Small-Aperture IC-8 IOL Intraocular Lens


An eye clinic


A series of 15 patients presenting for cataract surgery were implanted monocularly with a single-piece hydrophobic acrylic intraocular with a centrally located opaque annular mask measuring 3.23 mm in total diameter with a 1.36 mm central aperture. The visual acuity for distance, intermediate and near vision was compared with the second eye implanted with monofocal aspheric IOL .The quality of vision, glare, halos and the personal satisfaction of the patients were assessed with a validated questionnaire.


Three months after implantation, the mean UCVA for distance was 0,76; BCVA 0,82 with the refraction of -0,75,UCVA for intermediate 0,76;for near 0,82.,DCNVA 0,68. None of the patients needed glasses for working on PC , 90% were able to read newspaper without glasses. The questionnaire showed that 30% of the patients were very satisfied and 70% satisfied with the achieved results. Nobody complained about halos and glares..


Early optical and functional results from patients implanted with this novel IOL implanted show that IC 8 provides very good visual acuity for distance, intermediate and near vision. Overall patient satisfaction was high.
