BACKGROUND: Good unaided distance visual acuity (VA) is now a realistic expectation following cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Near vision, however, still requires additional refractive power, usually in the form of reading glasses. Multiple optic (multifocal) IOLs are available which claim to allow good vision at a range of distances. It is unclear whether this benefit outweighs the optical compromises inherent in multifocal IOLs. OBJECTIVES: To assess the visual effects of multifocal IOLs in comparison with the current standard treatment of monofocal lens implantation...

PURPOSE: To compare the long-term results of a secondary sulcus-placed, multifocal add-on intraocular lens (IOL) with those of a multifocal IOL implanted in the capsular bag. METHODS: In this prospective clinical trial, 30 pseudophakic eyes were treated with a multifocal add-on IOL and 30 cataractous eyes with a standard multifocal IOL. The main outcome measures comprised manifest refraction, visual acuity, defocus curves, and contrast sensitivity. Patients who had bilateral implantation of the same lens type were asked to complete a questionnaire...

We performed a literature review comparing multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation with pseudophakic monovision to treat presbyopia. Multifocal IOLs utilize refractive or diffractive principles to treat both distance and near vision, with a single lens implant. Monovision uses traditional monofocal lens implants to treat the dominant eye for emmotropia, and the non-dominant eye for myopia. This planned anisometropia is designed to enhance intermediate or near vision. Generally, distance vision was similar with both types of lens implantation, near vision was better with multifocal IOLs, and intermediate vision appeared to be better in the monovision group...

The purpose of this study was to analyze ocular residual astigmatism (ORA) before and after implantation of two different optical types of non-toric multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOL) in pre-cataract patients. This retrospective cohort study analyzed 72 eyes from 72 consecutive patients after MIOL surgery . To investigate magnitude and axis of astigmatic changes, the concepts of true corneal astigmatism and Alpins vector method were applied. There were no statistically significant between-group differences prior to surgery...

PURPOSE: Many different models and types of special intraocular lenses (IOL) are now available for refractive lens surgery. In particular, toric and multifocal IOL need specific conditions to achieve satisfactory results. For multifocal IOL, many models with different optical principles are available. For optimal individual patient-centred care, it is necessary to consider several different options. With special refractive lenses, the principle objective for the patients is to become less dependent on glasses...

PURPOSE: To explore the use of microperimetry in the evaluation of macular dysfunction in patients with cataract, to aid in proper intraocular lens selection (multifocal vs monofocal), and to set expectations for postoperative visual function. METHODS: One randomly chosen eye of 10 patients diagnosed as having mild (1+) to moderate (3+) cataract was evaluated before and 1 week after cataract surgery with the MAIA microperimeter (Centervue S.p.A, Padova, Italy). Corrected distance visual acuity, dilated and undilated biomicroscopy and indirect fundus examinations, intraocular pressure measurement, and a MAIA microperimeter test to measure macular sensitivity and fixation pattern were also performed...

PURPOSE: Cataract is the main cause of blindness, affecting 18 million people worldwide, with the highest incidence in the population above 50 years of age. Low visual acuity caused by cataract may have a negative impact on patient quality of life. The current treatment is surgery in order to replace the natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL), which can be mono- or multifocal. However, due to potential side effects, IOLs must be carefully chosen to ensure higher patient satisfaction...

In this paper, the authors try to motivate their preference for implanting AT.Lisa Multifocals from all other premium IOL's from the market. It is emphasized, through clinical examples, that their choice comes after a long experience with this type of mul- tifocals IOL's. We make a short presentation of this particular type of MIOL's with their good but also weak points and try to motivate our decision to change from other types. We present the steps that each patient has to follow in our clinic prior to surgery itself, stressing out the idea that the discussion with the patient is very important in taking a decision regarding the implantation of a Premium IOL...

A wide-angle viewing system offers a panoramic view of the surgical field and also improves the safety and efficacy of the vitreoretinal surgical procedure. Surgeons can easily observe the fundus in almost the whole area and evaluate the retinal pathologies through the panoramic view even in eyes with small pupils, corneal opacity, or eyes implanted with multifocal intraocular lens or toric intraocular lens. Recent wide-angle viewing systems consist of two types: contact lens and non-contact lens. The benefit of the contact lens type is better resolution and contrast of the fundus image compared to the non-contact lens type...

BACKGROUND: In order to meet the patients wish for compensation of presbyopia in a flexible way, even in cases of an already pseudophacic eye, sulcus-fixated additional intraocular lenses (IOL) have been developed as an alternative to multifocal IOLs (MIOL) in the capsular bag. This allows subsequent application of multifocal optics. Furthermore, these additional lenses offer a relatively simple opportunity for postoperative refractive fine tuning or, in cases of incompatibility, a minimally invasive explantation of the multifocal part of the optical system...
