To evaluate patient outcomes with Tecnis Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) following phacoemulsifaction.
121 eyes of 76 patients that received a Tecnis Multifocal IOL (models ZMA00 and ZMB00) in one or both eyes were evaluated. Outcome measures included UCVA at near, intermediate, and distance and BCVA.
The mean patient age was 66, and 45.5% were male. 51.0% of eyes achieved 20/25 or better UCVA for distance, 37.8% of eyes achieved 20/25 or better uncorrected intermediate vision, and 68.18% of eyes achieved 20/25 or better near visual acuity. Five eyes had previous laser vision correction, 6 eyes had limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) placed during surgery, 15 had YAG laser capsulotomy, and 11 had laser vision correction enhancement postoperatively.
These findings suggest that Tecnis Multifocal IOLs provide optimal visual outcomes at near, intermediate, and distance.
