PURPOSE To study the effect of microincision cataract surgery (MICS) on the optical quality of the cornea, characterized in terms of Seidel aberrations. SETTING Instituto Oftalmológico de Alicante, Vissum, Alicante, Spain. METHODS This study comprised 25 eyes of 25 patients with nuclear or corticonuclear cataract of grade 2+ to 4+ (Lens Opacities(More)
PURPOSE To study and compare the effects of the micro-incision cataract surgery (MICS-sub 1.8 mm) and miniincision coaxial phacoemulsification (2.2 mm) on the optical quality of the cornea characterized in terms of corneal aberrations. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty eyes underwent MICS and 50 mini-incision phacoemulsification, by the same surgeon. Both types(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate clinical outcomes and intraocular optical performance of a diffractive multifocal intraocular lens (IOL), Acri.Lisa 366D (Acri.Tec). SETTING Vissum-Instituto de Oftalmológico de Alicante, Alicante, Spain. METHODS The study included 69 eyes (52 patients) with Acri.Lisa 366D IOLs. The intraocular optical quality in vivo was(More)
PURPOSE To use corneal optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate the corneal incision quality in microincision cataract surgery (MICS) and microcoaxial phacoemulsification (microphaco). SETTING Vissum-Instituto Oftalmológico de Alicante, Alicante, Spain. METHODS Eyes with cataract grade II to IV were randomized into 2 groups for MICS or microphaco.(More)
PURPOSE To study the effect of a capsular tension ring (CTR) on the visual, refractive, and intraocular optical quality of a multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) with diffractive asymmetrical light distribution. SETTING Vissum-Instituto de Oftalmológico de Alicante, Alicante, Spain. METHODS An Acri.Lisa 366D IOL was implanted without CTR implantation in 54(More)
