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 compare visual outcomes after cataract surgery with bilateral implantation of 2 intraocular lenses (IOLs): extended range of vision and trifocal. METHODS: Each group of this prospective study comprised 40 eyes (20 patients). Phacoemulsification followed by bilateral implantation of a FineVision IOL (group 1) or a Symfony IOL (group 2) was performed. The following outcomes were assessed up to 1 year postoperatively: binocular uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), binocular uncorrected intermediate visual acuity (UIVA) at 60 cm, binocular uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA) at 40 cm, spherical equivalent (SE) refraction, defocus curves, mesopic and photopic contrast sensitivity, halometry, posterior capsule opacification (PCO), and responses to a patient questionnaire...

As our baby boomer population is aging and developing cataracts, so are our post-LASIK patients. These patients underwent LASIK surgery as they wished to be spectacle-free and are hoping to remain so after intraocular lens (IOL) surgery. Unfortunately, very little information is available regarding the suitability of presbyopia correcting IOLs for post-LASIK patients. This case represents successful implantation of an extended range of vision IOL in a 59-year-old patient who underwent multifocal ablation excimer laser surgery 12 years before...

PURPOSE: To analyze the clinical outcomes after implantation of an extended range of vision intraocular lens (IOL), the Tecnis Symfony, in a routine clinical setting. SETTING: Forty clinical sites in Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: The study comprised 411 patients who had bilateral implantation of the extended range of vision IOL, with intended micro-monovision in 1 group (monovision group) and intended emmetropia in the other group (non-monovision group)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate and compare the clinical outcomes with an aspheric monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) and an extended range of vision (ERV) IOL based on achromatic diffractive technology. METHODS: This was a prospective comparative study including 80 eyes undergoing cataract surgery with implantation of the monofocal Tecnis ZCB00 IOL (Abbott Medical Optics Inc., Santa Ana, CA) (monofocal group: 30 eyes of 15 patients) or the ERV Tecnis Symfony IOL (Abbott Medical Optics, Inc...

PURPOSE: Evaluation of the visual and refractive results 3 months after implantation of a diffractive extended range of vision (ERV) intraocular lens (IOL) during cataract surgery. METHODS: In a prospective multicentre study, patients with a calculated postoperative corneal astigmatism of ≤ 1.5 D received a diffractive ERV IOL (TECNIS Symfony, model ZXR00, Abbott Medical Optics, USA) during cataract surgery. After 3 months, the monocular and binocular corrected and uncorrected far, intermediate and near visual acuity, as well as refraction, were evaluated...

PURPOSE: To experimentally compare the optical performance of three types of hydrophobic intraocular lenses (IOLs): extended depth of focus, bifocal, and trifocal. METHODS: The tested IOLs were: TECNIS ZMB00 (bifocal; Abbott Medical Optics, Abbott Park, IL), TECNIS Symfony ZXR00 (extended depth of focus; Abbott Medical Optics), and FineVision GFree hydrophobic (trifocal; PhysIOL, Liège, Belgium). Their surface topography was analyzed by optical microscopy. Modulation transfer function (MTF) and spherical aberrations were determined on optical bench for variable pupil apertures and with two cornea models (0 µm and +0...

PURPOSE: To compare the optical quality between two intraocular lenses (IOLs): the Mini WELL Ready progressive multifocal (SIFI Medtech, Catania, Italy), and the TECNIS Symfony (Abbott Laboratories, Illinois, USA), which both provide a continuous range of vision from far to near positions. METHODS: The in vitro optical quality of each lens was assessed with an instrument conceived for measuring the modulation transfer function (MTF). The optical quality of each lens was described in terms of MTF, through-focus MTF, defocus tolerance, pupil dependence, and Strehl ratio MTF...

PURPOSE: To compare the optical quality under large apertures among three multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs): the TECNIS Symfony ZXR00 (Abbott Laboratories, Abbott Park, IL), the AT LISA tri 839MP (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany), and the Finevision (PhysIOL, Liège, Belgium). METHODS: The in vitro optical quality of each lens was assessed with an instrument that measured the modulation transfer function (MTF). The optical quality of each lens was described in terms of MTF and through focus average MTF...

OBJECTIVE: The SYMFONIE study was designed to analyze the clinical and biological characteristics, and the cardiovascular risk markers, in men and women with the metabolic syndrome compared to control subjects. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The study population included 101,697 men and women, 18 to 80 years of age, who had a health checkup at the Centre d'Investigations Preventives et Cliniques (Paris, France) between 1997 to 2002. The metabolic syndrome was defined according to the ATpiiI-NCEP 2001 criteria...
