Outline

Text

Background: We did a prospective study of 25 patients where we implanted a (toric) multifocal IOL with a surface-embedded segment for near-vision mainly in both eyes. The optical principle is based on rotational asymmetry in contrast to other MIOLs.

Material and Method: Implantation was done (Addition +3.0 diopters) after CO-MICS through a 2.2 mm incision in about 50 eyes. Refraction, Pentacam, IOL Master, aberrometry and a patient questionaire were documented pre- and 1 as well as 3 month postoperatively.

Results: The postoperative spherical equivalent is about +0.17 diopters. More than 90% of patients did not use glasses any more and reported less halos. In comparison to other MIOL we recognized a quicker neuro adaption and a better intermediate vision.

Conclusion: We mainly use this IOL in patients who work a lot on computers and are night time drivers. Therefore it became our number one IOL in presbyopic lens exchange patients.
