Purpose: To evaluate the results after CLE and bilateral implantation of extended-range-of-vision presbyopia-correcting lenses in terms of visual acuity at different distances, photic phenomena and subjective patient satisfaction with the visual outcome.
Setting: Eye Institute “Poliklinika Knezović”, Zagreb, Croatia
Design: Prospective study
Methods: Moderately motivated patients with adequate visual requirements and reasonable postoperative expectations had CLE and bilateral implantation of extended-range-of-vision presbyopia-correcting IOL (Tecnis, Symfony) with the same surgical procedure and the same surgeon performing the surgery. Postoperative distance, intermediate and near visual acuity were measured 1, 3 and 6 months postoperatively. On the last clinical visit, patients were given a questionnaire to complete, grading satisfaction with the surgery outcome.
Results: The study comprised 30 patients (60 eyes; mean age 62+/-10) of which high percentage had good and satisfying visual acquity at all distances, acceptable number of photic phenomena (reported by less than 10% of patients) and high percentage of subjectively satisfied patients.
Conclusion: After bilateral implantation of extended-range-of-vision IOL binocular non-corrected distance, intermediate and near visual acuity improvement was achieved along with high overall patient satisfaction, spectacle independence for majority of patients most of the time and relatively small number of photic phenomena.
