PURPOSE Comparison of the visual performance and wavefront analysis between patients with Tecnis ZM900 aspheric and AcrySof ReStor SN60D3 spheric diffractive multifocal intraocular lenses (IOL). METHODS This prospective comparative study included 78 eyes of 39 patients. The performed ophthalmologic evaluation included near, intermediate and distance(More)
PURPOSE To compare the anti-inflammatory efficacy of ketorolac of tromethamine 0.4% and nepafenac 0.1% eye drops for prophylaxis of cystoid macular oedema (CME) after small-incision cataract extraction. METHODS Patients were assigned randomly to three groups. Group 1 patients received a topical artificial tear substitute (placebo); group 2 received(More)
PURPOSE To compare the optical performance and visual outcomes between two diffractive multifocal lenses: AMO Tecnis® ZMB00 and AcrySof® ReSTOR® SN6AD1. METHODS This prospective, non-randomized comparative study included the assessment of 74 eyes in 37 patients referred for cataract surgery and candidates for multifocal intraocular lens implants.(More)
PURPOSE To compare the visual outcome, contrast sensitivity and wavefront analysis of patients that underwent cataract surgery and implantation of AcrySof SN60D3 multifocal intraocular lens with those who received the AcrySof SN60AT monofocal IOL. METHODS This was a prospective clinical trial of forty eyes that received the multifocal IOL and thirty-two(More)
UNLABELLED We describe a modification of the original standard radial aspiration technique. The modified technique--hurricane 1-step continuous circular cortical aspiration--has the potential to improve this part of phacoemulsification surgery with benefits in surgical time and possible decreases in fluid, corneal edema, and traction on the zonular fibers(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficiency of surgical procedures using three phaco tip designs in torsional phacoemulsification using the bevel-down technique. METHODS In this prospective, comparative, masked study, patients were randomly assigned to have torsional coaxial microincision cataract surgery using the mini-flared 45-degree Kelman tip, reversed(More)
A 51-year-old woman with age-related cataract had an uneventful phacoemulsification and a Tecnis ZM900 multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in both eyes. During IOL implantation in the left eye, the optic was unintentionally reversed in the bag and left that way. The refraction surprise was not significant and six months postoperatively the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the postoperative outcomes of a novel toric multifocal in traocular lens (IOL) in patients with cataract and corneal astigmatism. METHODS This prospective nonrandomized study included patients with cataract, corneal astigmatism, and a motivation for spectacle independence. In all patients, a Rayner M-flex® T toric IOL was implanted in(More)
Objective: Comparison of the visual performance between patients with Tecnis MF ZM900, Acrysof Restor® SN60D3, Acrysof SN60AT and Acrysof SN60WF intraocular lenses. Methods: This prospective comparative study included 142 eyes of 71 patients in Sao Paulo University. The ophthalmologic evaluation performed included near, intermediate and distance corrected(More)
The use of multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) is a great advance in the treatment of patients with cataract allowing near and distance uncorrected visual acuity recovery. However patients with some degrees of corneal astigmatism have some limitations. We present 3 cases that were indicated for phacoemulsitfication and multifocal intraocular lens implant(More)
