Abstract

Purpose : Multifocal intraocular lenses (M-IOLs) represent a completely new visual experience, sometimes difficult to explain to patients. Visual simulators based on Adaptive Optics (AO)/SimVis are increasingly used to provide patients the experience of a new correction, prior to its implantation. The current study evaluates visual simulation of M-IOLs using different simulators in patients before/after implantation of M-IOLs.

Methods : Two simulation platforms were used: (1) a custom polychromatic AO system, with 2 visual simulators: a Spatial Light Modulator (SLM_AO), which mapped spatially the lens power profile, and an optotunable lens operating under temporal multiplexing (SimVis_AO); and (2) a wearable, binocular, large field of view SimVis prototype (SimVis_prot). All devices simulated a trifocal diffractive M-IOL (POD F,FINeVision,PhysIOL). 4 patients (age:53-74) were measured before surgery simulating the M-IOL and after its implantation (30 days post-surgery). Through-focus decimal visual acuity (TFVA) was measured (1) monocularly using a 4AFC procedure with tumbling E letters in monochromatic light projected in a Digital Micromirror device, while changing vergences in the AO system; and (2) binocularly using a clinical optotype in white light, and the SimVis prototype with trial lenses. Differences of TF VA curves between methods, as well as pre- and post-operatively, were evaluated in terms of Root Mean Square (RMS) difference between the curves.

Results : Similar maximum VA was found pre-operatively [monofocal 1.10±0.09; multifocal 0.90±0.08], and post-operatively (multifocal 0.98±0.06) with both simulation platforms. There are statistically significant differences between pre-operative multifocal simulations (SimVis_AO-SLM_AO,p=0.025; SimVis_AO-SimVis_prot,p=0.011), while no statistically significant differences were found between pre- and post-operative data (SimVis_AO,p=0.926; SLM_AO,p=0.925; SimVis_prot,p=0.287). Average RMS difference pre-operative TFVA with the simulated M-IOL and post-operative with the implanted IOL was 0.08 (SLM_AO), 0.09 (SimVis_AO) and 0.08 (SimVis_prot).

Conclusions : Visual simulations are useful programmable tools to predict visual performance with M-IOLs, both in an AO environment and in a large field of view SimVis prototype. Pre-operative visual simulations and post-operative data are in good agreement, as well as SimVis and SLM simulations.
