Randomized Trial of Multifocal Intraocular Lenses versus Monovision after Bilateral Cataract Surgery – Corrected Proof

Objective: To compare spectacle independence in patients randomized to receive bilateral multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) or monofocal IOLs with the powers adjusted to produce monovision.Design: Randomized, multicenter clinical trial.Participants: A total of 212 patients with bilateral, visually significant cataract.Methods: Before bilateral sequential cataract surgery, patients were randomized (allocation ratio 1:1) to receive bilateral Tecnis ZM900 diffractive multifocal lenses (Abbott Medical Optics, Santa Ana, CA) or Akreos AO monofocal lenses (Bausch & Lomb, Rochester, NY) with the powers adjusted to target −1.25 diopters (D) monovision. Outcomes were assessed 4 months after the second eye underwent operation.Main Outcome Measures: The primary outcome was (Read more...)
