To evaluate outcomes with a unilateral Tecnis Multifocal Intraocular Lens post phacoemulsification.
Eyes with a unilateral Tecnis Multifocal Intraocular implant models ZMA00 and ZMB00 were retrospectively evaluated. Post-operative measurements included UCVA near, intermediate, and distance, and BCVA. It was also noted whether the patient had YAG laser capsulotomy post-Op and/or Laser Vision Correction enhancement. A questionnaire was provided to assess patient satisfaction
31 eyes of 31 patients were evaluated. The contralateral eye was phakic in 60%, pseudophakic with a monofocal implant in 26.7% and pseudophakic with a presbyopic IOL in 13.3%. The average age was 60.5 years, and 46.7% were male. One patient had previous laser vision correction, 3 eyes had LRI during surgery, 2 had YAG laser capsulotomy post-operatively, and 2 had laser vision correction enhancement post-operatively. 53.3% of eyes achieved 20/25 or better UCVA for distance, 60.0% of eyes achieved 20/30 or better uncorrected intermediate vision, and 76.6% of eyes achieved 20/25 or better near visual acuity. Overall, patients reported that they were satisfied with their vision in the eye with the Presbyopic IOL
From the outcomes observed in patients, Tecnis Multifocal lenses appear to provide satisfactory outcomes in unilateral cataract cases.
