IOL Insertion/Toric IOLs

Certain Patients Who Received an EDOF IOL Reported Better QoL

Posted on

Patients with higher levels of postoperative astigmatism who received an extended depth of focus intraocular lens (EDOF IOL) experienced better quality of life improvement than those who received a low-add multifocal lens, according to study involving 668 individuals. Additionally, more of them were willing to have the procedure again. 

Participants received either the and EDOF (n=408) or multifocal lens (n=260). At 3 months, 86% of EDOF patients with higher postop astigmatism reported better quality of life, vs 68% of those who received the multifocal lens. Still, quality of life improvement in the overall contingent was similar in both cohorts, as 9 in every 10 in both groups reported such.
