A prospective, open-label study included 65 patients (100 eyes) with presbyopia, who received cataract extraction with the implantation of a new IOL AcrySof PanOptix® trifocal. The average age of the patients was 60.0±12.1 years. 35 patients underwent bilateral correction with multifocal IOLs, and 30 had a monolateral correction. In 21% (n=21) cases, femtolaser support of cataract extraction was performed. On 9 eyes (9%) the primary posterior capsulorhexis was performed. The range of optical power of implanted IOLs was 13 to 30 D. The follow-up period was from 6 to 9 (6.8 ± 0.9) months.


The increase in BCNVA was from 0.56±0.25 before surgery to 0.8±0.19 on the 1st day after cataract removal (p<0.05) and 0.98±0.16 at the follow-up period of 6 months.The primary endpoint of the study (BCFVA=1.0) in the group was achieved in 83% of cases (n=83). The effect of glare was noted in 17 patients (26.1%), halo in 9 (13.8%), driving difficulties in 6 (9.2%). The overwhelming majority of patients (96.9%) rated the result of the operation as "excellent" (n=51, 78.5%) and "good" (n=14, 21.5%).


Implantation of the examined IOL is associated with a high efficiency of near, intermediate distance and far vision correction. A new trifocal IOL may be recommended for use in clinical practice. Further comparative studies including other multifocal IOLs are needed to determine the indications and contraindications for its implantation.
