Multifocal IOL improves uncorrected and corrected near, distance vision

A refractive segmented multifocal IOL provided good visual outcomes, high patient satisfaction and a satisfactory complication rate, according to a large study.The retrospective analysis included 9,366 eyes of 4,683 presbyopic ametropic patients who underwent bilateral phacoemulsification and implantation of the Lentis Mplus (Oculentis), an aspheric nonrotational symmetric multifocal IOL.LogMAR uncorrected distance visual acuity, corrected distance visual acuity, uncorrected near visual acuity, refraction and keratometry were assessed at 1 day, 1 week, and 1, 3 and 6 months after surgery. Patients completed a computer-based questionnaire on satisfaction at the 3-month follow-up.
