Purpose: : To evaluate subjective outcomes in patients that have undergone cataract surgery and received bilateral implantation of aspheric diffractive multifocal or accommodating IOLs.

Methods: : Single center, non-randomized, retrospective evaluation of patients bilaterally implanted with either the TECNIS® multifocal (T) or the CRYSTALENS® AO (C) IOLs. All patients evaluated were at least 3 months post-cataract surgery. Visual acuities and patient satisfaction surveys were collected on qualified subjects.

Conclusions: : Both IOL platforms provided good overall visual outcomes, but the multifocal patients performed significantly better at near and accommodative patients performed slightly better at intermediate. Significant percentage of multifocal patients reported no difficulty reading menu in dim light and showed a higher percentage of patients choosing the same implant again.
