In existing designs of intraocular lenses (IOLs), optical outcomes are compromised even after perfectly executed surgery. The reason for this is misalignment of optical axis of the eye and its visual axis. There is a need to design an IOL which compensates for this misalignment and hence enhances the optical outcomes of cataract surgery. The present innovation attempts to fulfill this unmet need and optimizes optical outcomes of all IOLs of different optical profiles - spherical, aspheric, toric, and multifocal...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To summarize the literature on dysphotopsia, focusing on strategies for management and prevention. RECENT FINDINGS: Clinical studies and ray-tracing diagrams have improved our understanding of the risk factors for positive and negative dysphotopsiae. Well known management and prevention strategies such as piggyback IOL, reverse optic capture, Nd:YAG capsulotomy, and IOL exchange are reviewed, as well as newer strategies such as the infertemporal approach to IOL implantation, 'in-the-bag nasal optic truncation' and new IOL design implantation, and new IOL design...

PURPOSE: To assess photopic and mesopic vision in patients implanted with the Bi-Flex® M 677 MY bifocal intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS: In this prospective clinical study, 25 patients with cataract in both eyes were subjected to cataract surgery and bilateral implantation of the Bi-Flex® M 677MY (Medicontur, Hungary) IOL. Three months after surgery, high-contrast photopic uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) were determined...

The region of far peripheral vision, beyond 60 degrees of visual angle, is important to the evaluation of peripheral dark shadows (negative dysphotopsia) seen by some intraocular lens (IOL) patients. Theoretical calculations show that the limited diameter of an IOL affects ray paths at large angles, leading to a dimming of the main image for small pupils, and to peripheral illumination by light bypassing the IOL for larger pupils. These effects are rarely bothersome, and cataract surgery is highly successful, but there is a need to improve the characterization of far peripheral vision, for both pseudophakic and phakic eyes...

Negative Dysphotopsia (ND) is a dark, sometimes rounded bar or shadow in the temporal visual field after uncomplicated cataract surgery that may lead to great patient discomfort. R. Olson called it "the number one troublesome complaint after uneventful cataract surgery". The origin of this phenomena remains uncertain and is discussed conversely in literature. We have found evidence that it may be caused by a slight difference in magnification caused by the new IOL compared to the old crystalline lens. This may lead to a minimal shift of the object space corresponding the blind spot and the larger central vessels so they become visible for a short time after surgery...

PURPOSE: To compare the visual outcomes and quality of vision of 2 new diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) with those of a monofocal IOL. SETTING: Fatebenefratelli e Oftalmico Hospital, Milan, Italy. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: Patients had bilateral cataract surgery with implantation of a trifocal IOL (Panoptix), an extended-range-of-vision IOL (Symfony), or a monofocal IOL (SN60WF). Postoperative examinations included assessing distance, intermediate, and near visual acuity; binocular defocus; intraocular and total aberrations; point-spread function (PSF); modulation transfer function (MTF); retinal straylight; and quality-of-vision (QoV) and spectacle-dependence questionnaires...

PURPOSE: To describe a simple preoperative ink test as a novel adjunct to intrastromal keratopigmentation for post-laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) dysphotopsias. METHODS: A surgical marking pen is applied to the area over a peripheral iridotomy before intrastromal keratopigmentation. The patient can then assess whether there is any improvement in their symptoms of dysphotopsias. Manual intrastromal keratopigmentation can then be performed using a crescent blade into the clear cornea at 50% depth and tunneled centrally to create a pocket ensuring that the peripheral iridotomy is fully occluded...

A systematic review of the recent literature regarding pseudophakic monovision as a reliable methods for presbyopia correction was performed based on the PubMed, MEDLINE, Nature and the American Academy of Ophthalmology databases in July 2015 and data from 18 descriptive and 12 comparative studies were included in this narrative review. Pseudophakic monosvision seems to be an effective method for presbyopia with high rates of spectacles independence and minimal dysphotopsia side-effects, that should be considered by the modern cataract surgeons...

The appearance of a dark shadow in the temporal periphery, otherwise known as negative dysphotopsia, continues to be a problem for some patients after routine uncomplicated cataract surgery. Etiologies include type and design of intraocular lens (IOL), anatomical features and dimensions of the eye, pupil size, angle kappa, relationship of the optic to the anterior capsule, and the position of the optic/haptic junction of the IOL. Although the primary etiology remains controversial, it is clear that the cause is multifactorial...

INTRODUCTION: Refractive surgery in presbyopia tends to achieve spectacle independence with minimal optical disturbances. We compared monovision to multifocality procedures regarding these outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review of published (till November 21, 2016) randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing any monovision to any multifocality method or comparing different monovision/multifocality methods to each other that enabled direct or indirect comparisons between particular monovision and particular multifocality procedures in presbyopic patients undergoing cataract-related or unrelated surgery in respect to spectacle independence, unaided binocular visual acuity (VA), contrast sensitivity (CS), and adverse events...

PURPOSE: Over 8 million cataract surgeries are performed in the United States and the European Union annually, with many patients choosing to pay out of pocket for premium options including premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) or laser-assisted cataract surgery (LACS). This report provides a systematic review evaluating patient-centered and visual quality outcomes comparing standard monofocal IOLs to premium cataract surgery options. METHODS: PubMed and EMBASE were searched for publications published between January 1, 1980, and September 18, 2016, on multifocal, accommodative, and toric IOLs, monovision, and LACS, which reported on 1) dysphotopsias, 2) contrast sensitivity, 3) spectacle independence, 4) vision-related quality of life or patient satisfaction, and 5) IOL exchange...

PURPOSE: To describe a new technique (PrEsbyopic Allogenic Refractive Lenticule [PEARL] inlay) using an allogenic corneal inlay prepared from a small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) lenticule. METHODS: A SMILE lenticule of specified thickness (mean: 61.5 ± 3.32 µm) was trephined at the center to 1-mm diameter and implanted in the cornea on the coaxially sighted light reflex under a femtosecond laser-created cap of 120 µm in the nondominant eye of presbyopic patients...

We describe in-the-bag nasal intraocular lens (IOL) optic truncation, a new technique for the treatment of negative dysphotopsia. After a plane is created between the nasal capsular bag and the IOL, micrograspers and intraocular scissors are used to amputate the nasal optic edge. The amputation is to reduce the optical impact of the IOL edge and nasal anterior capsule on the occurrence of negative dysphotopsia. The technique addresses many of the proposed mechanisms contributing to the development of negative dysphotopsia and can theoretically be used in all patients with chronic symptomatology...
