Abstract Details


To evaluate visual outcomes and capsular stability of the new aspheric Aspira-aXA IOL (HumanOptics) with a large optic diameter (7 mm), an overall diameter of 11.0 mm and optimized plate haptics after implantation in cataract patients.


Department of Ophthalmology, Kepler University Clinic, Johannes Kepler University, Linz


A total of 100 eyes (50 eyes per study center) with senile cataract and eligible for posterior chamber IOL implantation was targeted. Postoperative follow-up examinations scheduled up to 1.5 years included refraction, visual acuity, tilt and decentration, contrast sensitivity (1 center) and a questionnaire regarding patient satisfaction.


At the time of submission, 33 eyes of 28 patients had completed the 3-month follow-up. Median IOL power and AL were 22.5 D (18.5 to 28.0) and 23.5 mm (21.7 to 25.2), respectively. No IOL tilt and decentration was observed. Median monocular UCVA and CDVA was 0.00 logMAR (0.00 to 0.49) and 0.00 logMAR (-0.10 to 0.15), respectively. Median contrast sensitivity scores at all frequencies were within the range of normal values under photopic and mesopic conditions. Overall, all patients were “very satisfied” (66%) or “satisfied” (34%) with the quality of their vision. No intra- and postoperative complications were reported.


The Aspira-aXA with its large optic and cut-out haptics provided good and stable visual performance.
