OBJECTIVE To compare the difference in posterior capsular opacification (PCO) between highly refractive silicone and hydrophobic acrylic foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs) with sharp and round edge designs 3 years after in-the-bag IOL implantation in subjects undergoing bilateral cataract surgery. DESIGN Open-label, prospective, randomized, multicenter(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence of and risk factors for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) in highly myopic eyes after cataract surgery. SETTING Two ophthalmology centers in Munich and Ahaus, Germany. METHODS This retrospective medical chart review comprised 1519 consecutive patients (2356 eyes) with an axial length (AL) greater than 27.0 mm who(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the safety and effectiveness of the AcrySof phakic angle-supported intraocular lens (IOL) (Alcon Laboratories, Inc., Fort Worth, TX) for correction of moderate-to-high myopia in adults. DESIGN One-year interim analysis of a phase 3, nonrandomized, open-label, prospective, multicenter European clinical study. PARTICIPANTS A total(More)
PURPOSE To perform an intraindividual comparison of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) with 2 foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs) and a foldable acrylic IOL 1 year after in-the-bag implantation. SETTINGS Seven German ophthalmology centers. METHODS In an open prospective randomized multicenter study, each center intraindividually compared a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical outcome in eyes with significant corneal astigmatism after cataract surgery with implantation of a new diffractive multifocal toric intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS Prospective, non-randomised multicentre clinical study including 57 eyes of 38 consecutive patients with an age between 37 and 84 years that underwent cataract(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate binocular visual outcome for near, intermediate and distance compared to monocular visual outcome at the same distances in patients implanted with a diffractive trifocal intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS The study comprised of 100 eyes of 50 patients that underwent bilateral refractive lens exchange or cataract surgery with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical outcomes after cataract surgery with implantation of a new diffractive multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) with a lower near addition (+2.75 D.). METHODS 143 eyes of 85 patients aged between 40 years and 83 years that underwent cataract surgery with implantation of the multifocal IOL (MIOL) Tecnis ZKB00 (Abbott Medical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the visual, refractive, and contrast sensitivity outcomes, as well as the level of photic phenomena, after cataract surgery with implantation of a trifocal diffractive toric intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS This prospective study included 56 eyes with corneal astigmatism of 1.00 diopters (D) or greater of 28 patients (age: 23 to 78(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate visual outcomes following implantation of a trifocal diffractive intraocular lens (IOL) and to analyze their correlation with patient satisfaction and ease of performing daily tasks. METHODS This was a prospective study enrolling 100 eyes of 50 patients undergoing cataract surgery with implantation of trifocal IOL AT LISA tri 839MP.(More)
PURPOSE Evaluation of the visual and refractive results 3 months after implantation of a diffractive extended range of vision (ERV) intraocular lens (IOL) during cataract surgery. METHODS In a prospective multicentre study, patients with a calculated postoperative corneal astigmatism of ≤ 1.5 D received a diffractive ERV IOL (TECNIS Symfony, model ZXR00,(More)
