Abstract

Purpose : To evaluate the intermediate and near vision of cataract surgery patients implanted with the PanOptix intraocular lens, and to compare these visions with the acuities of patients implanted with standard monofocal IOL.

Methods : A retrospective comparative study was conducted to determine the postoperative vision in patients implanted with either the PanOptix IOL or a standard monofocal lens. The first 174 eyes implanted with the PanOptix lens from a single surgery center were included in this study. A randomly selected cohort of 103 eyes implanted with a monofocal lens from the same surgery center were included as a comparative control group. The lens power of both the PanOptix and monofocal lens was calculated with the IOL Master using the Barrett 2 formula. Three weeks after cataract surgery and lens implantation, visual acuity was measured using the Snellen chart, Jaeger chart at arm’s length, and Jaeger chart at 14 inches.

Results : Among patients implanted with the PanOptix lens, 135/174 (78%) were I5 or better and 96/174 (55%) were I3 or better for intermediate vision. For near vision, 169/174 (97%) had J5 or better and 157/174 (90%) had J3 or better. Among patients implanted with the standard monofocal lens, 25/103 (24%) were I5 or better and 6/103 (6%) were I3 or better for intermediate vision. For near vision, 23/103 (22%) were J5 or better and 5/103 (5%) were J3 or better. Postoperative intermediate and near visual acuities were statistically different between both groups (p value < .001). If spectacle independence is defined as a combination of visual acuity of 20/50, I5, and J5 then 134/174 (77%) of patient’s implanted with the PanOptix lens were spectacle free compared to 13/103 (13%) of patients implanted with the monofocal lens.

The preoperative refraction was not statistically significant between the PanOptix and Monofocal groups. 172/174 (99%) of patients in the PanOptix group had 20/50 distance vision or better at three weeks post-op compared with 98/103 (95%) of patients in the monofocal group, and this difference was also not statistically significant.

Conclusions : The intermediate and near vision of the PanOptix lens was far superior to that of the monofocal lens group with similar distance acuities for both. The PanOptix lens allowed for spectacle independence for a large percentage of patients.
