To assess subjective outcomes in patients that have undergone cataract extraction and received two different presbyopia correcting IOLs: ZMA00/ZMB00 or SN6AD1 IOLs.
Single-center, open-label, retrospective/prospective comparison study on patients that have undergone cataract surgery and have been implanted with either an aspheric diffractive IOL (model ZMA00/ZMB00) (T) or an apodized diffractive aspheric IOL (model SN6AD1) (R). Quality of life questionnaires were obtained on all patients with at least 3 months post-cataract extraction.
Fifty-one patients (T=33, R=18) were evaluated for this study. Mean age: (T: 74, R: 71). Percentage of patients satisfied or very satisfied with overall vision without correction (T: 90%, R: 93%). Percentage of patients not needing glasses after surgery: (T: 72%, R: 78%). Percentage of patients able to read easily: (T: 76%, R: 59%). Percentage of patients that will most likely have the same implant again: (T: 94%, R: 76%).
Both presbyopia-correcting IOLs showed good overall visual satisfaction without correction, with the aspheric diffractive multifocal lens patients being able to read more easily than the patients with the apodized diffractive aspheric multifocal lens. The aspheric diffractive multifocal patients also reported higher likelihood of having the same lens implanted again.
