Abstract Details


To outline the early postoperative visual performance and subjective quality of vision (QoV) following implantation of a small-aperture intraocular lens (IOL) in the non-dominant eye.


Cathedral Eye Clinic, Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK


The study enrolled 22 patients (22 eyes) implanted with the small-aperture IC-8 IOL (Acufocus) in the non-dominant eye with a myopic target. The dominant eye was implanted with a monofocal IOL or if emmetropic the eye was untreated. Patients were assessed 1 month postoperatively. Refraction, uncorrected (UDVA) and best-corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities, uncorrected intermediate (UIVA) and near (UNVA) visual acuities, and a QoV questionnaire were evaluated.


The mean target spherical equivalent (SE) was -0.83 ± 0.14 dioptres (D) and the mean achieved SE was -0.85 ± 0.46 D (P = .165). The mean monocular CDVA, UIVA and UNVA was -0.05 ± 0.07 logMAR, 0.32 ± 0.11 logMAR and 0.17 ± 0.09 logMAR respectively. The mean postoperative binocular UIVA and UNVA was 0.29 ± 0.10 logMAR and 0.16 ± 0.10 logMAR. Patients reported a mean QoV score of 8.50 ± 0.89 in daylight and 7.63 ± 1.31 at night. All patients reported their intermediate and near vision as clear or they experienced only a slight problem.


The small-aperture IOL provided a high level of postoperative overall QoV, and a high level of satisfaction at intermediate and near working distances at the early postoperative assessment. The IOL displayed adequate unaided intermediate and near visual acuity.
