To compare, as a quality of vision index, the monocular photopic and mesopic contrast sensitivity with and without glare of patients implanted with the dual optic Synchrony accommodating IOL with the one of patients implanted with conventional monofocal IOL (SA 60 AT).
The contrast sensitivity function of 13 eyes (7 patients) implanted with the Synchrony IOL (Abbot) (age: 77,57 +/-3,9) and of 27 eyes (17 patients ) (mean age: 71,9+/-5.6) implanted with the monofocal SA 60AT (Alcon) were studied under photopic and mesopic conditions with and without glare using the OPTEC 6500P. The people who administered the tests were blind to the type of IOL under examination.
The results are reported in the tab. There was no significant difference between the two IOL in any of the conditions tested.
the dual optic accommodating IOL provides a similar quality of vision, as expressed by contrast sensitivity, as a standard monofocal IOL.
