Long term visual outcomes good after contralateral implantation with small-aperture IOL

Posted on

Patients undergoing cataract surgery contralaterally treated with a small-aperture IOL achieved excellent visual outcomes after 12 months, according to a poster presented at AAO 2022.

In this study, 343 patients with cataracts received an IC-8 small-aperture IOL (targeting −0.75 D) in one eye and a monofocal or monofocal toric IOL (targeting plano) in their fellow eye. Monocular and binocular uncorrected distance, uncorrected intermediate, and uncorrected near visual acuity  (UDVA, UIVA, UNVA) were measured at 12 months post-operation and are as follows:

Mean MRSE
IC-8 eye: −0.32 D ± 0.48
Fellow eye: 0.12 D ± 0.37

Mean UIVA
IC-8 eye: 0.10 ± 0.19 (20/25)
Fellow eye: 0.30 ± 0.18 (20/40)

Mean UNVA
IC-8 eye: 0.22 ± 0.15 (20/33).
Fellow eye: 0.50 ± 0.17 (20/63).

Mean binocular
UDVA: −0.02 ± 0.10 (20/19)
UIVA: 0.07 ± 0.16 (20/23)
UNVA: 0.19 ± 0.14 (20/31).
