Abstract

Purpose: : Evaluate the role of clinical trial participation in patient satisfaction after multifocal IOL implantation (MFIOL).

Methods: : 112 patients that received bilateral MFIOLs were divided into two groups. First group (n=32) included patients who participated in clinical trials. Second group (n=80) included those who didn’t. Overall-OS, distance-DS, intermediate-IS, near-NS and night vision satisfaction-NTVS was assessed using a scale from 0 (very dissatisfied) to 10 (highly satisfied).

Results: : No significant difference in age, residual error, postoperative visual acuity (uncorrected or best-corrected) at distance, intermediate and near between groups. NS was significantly higher in clinical trial patients-CTP (8.5 vs 7.9. P=.015). Although CTP showed overall higher satisfaction scores; no significant differences was found in other parameters.

Conclusions: : Trend shows that CTPs tend to be more satisfied than non CTPs. This factor must be taken in consideration when reflecting the clinical trial results onto the general population.
