The study was a retrospective comparative evaluation of patients’ outcomes that received Tecnis Multifocal lens versus Restor +3 Add post phacoemulsifaction surgery.
Eyes that received Tecnis Multifocal lenses (TMF) ZMA00 and ZMB00 Restor implant models SN6AD1 and SN6AD3 were selected to be evaluated. Patients had either bilateral or unilateral Restor implants. Measurements post-Op included average spherical equivalent, astigmatism, UCVA near, intermediate and distance and BCVA. It was noted whether the patient had YAG laser capsulotomy post-Op and/or Laser Vision Correction enhancement.
121 eyes of 76 patients with a TMF lens and 85 eyes of 52 patients with a Restor lens were evaluated. 45.5% of TMF patients and 29.4% of Restor patients were male. Patients’ mean age was 66 years old for TMF lens models and 60 years old for Restor lens models. Mean postoperative spherical equivalent in TMF patients was 0.37 and in Restor patients was 0.20. 13.27% of TMF patients and 17.31% of Restor patients had UCVA of 20/20 or better at distance; 51.0% of TMF patients and 50% of Restor patients had UCVA of 20/25 or better at distance; In patients with TMF lenses 68.18% of patients had a near UCVA of 20/25 or better at near. In contrast, 44.23% of Restor patients saw 20/25 or better at near.
Both the Tecnis multifocal and Restor D1 implants are effective at providing patients with distance and near vision. While both lenses provided similar distance visual acuities, the TMF provided superior near UCVA results.
