To analyze safety and effectiveness of phacorefractive surgery in post Lasik patients with multifocal iol.
Case series of p<span style="line-height:20.8px">atients with history of corneal refractive surgery (lasik) and clear lens exchange with a multifocal IOL during 2014 - 2015 were evaluated in an ophthalmology service in Monterrey, MX. </span>Change in Visual Acuity, refraction, patient satisfaction and complications were evaluated using standard Reinstein graphs, SPSS and VF-7
14 cases were analyzed and followed for 1 year. We observed UDVA improvement in all cases; 97% of cases had an accuracy of SEQ intended target -0.13 to +0.50. Sph Eq Refraction Attempted vs. Achieved was 1.55 +/- 0.61; Refraction stability: (% changed >0.50D was 0%). Mean age was 53 (47-55) years. Barret true K formula was used to calculate IOL power in 80% cases. No cases of RD were found
Stability and Repeatability of preoperatory measurements need to be considered in order to improve phacorefractive results with multifocal IOL in post lasik patients. Safety and efficacy of this procedure is still to be determined
