Purpose To describe and evaluate a new monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) designed to improve intermediate vision using a unique refractive technology. Methods The new monofocal lens is based on a higher order aspheric optic and is designed to improve intermediate vision. Simulated visual acuity from far to -2.00 diopters (D) was calculated using optical bench data. The effect of corneal higher order aberrations (HOAs) on simulated visual acuity, pupil size, and decentration was assessed using realistic computer eye models. The susceptibility to photic phenomena was evaluated by measuring preclinically the intensity of the light distribution in the retinal plane. The new lens design was compared to a standard aspheric monofocal IOL that shares the same platform, material, and primary spherical aberration as the new design. Results Simulated defocus curves showed increased simulated visual acuity in the intermediate range compared to a standard aspheric monofocal IOL with comparable distance vision, independently of the pupil size and corneal HOAs. At -1.50 D, the new IOL design provided a gain of approximately 0.1 logMAR, whereas at distance, the difference was less than 0.05 logMAR. The tolerance to decentration was also similar in both designs. Finally, experimental results indicate that the susceptibility to photic phenomena with the new lens design was similar to that of a standard aspheric monofocal IOL. Conclusions Preclinical data showed that the new lens design improves intermediate vision while maintaining comparable distance image quality and keeping the same photic phenomena profile as a standard aspheric monofocal IOL.

Purpose To evaluate whether hyperopic patients with short axial length and high dioptric intraocular lens (IOL) power can achieve a higher depth of focus after implantation of a monofocal spherical or aspheric IOL than emmetropic patients. Setting Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University Graz, Graz, Austria. Design Prospective case series. Methods Patients presenting for cataract surgery were divided by calculated IOL power into a hyperopic (≥22.0 diopters [D]) or emmetropic (18.0 to 21.5...

Purpose To develop a questionnaire quantifying spectacle independence following cataract surgery. Design Questionnaire design and validation study. Methods A literature review, expert clinical interviews, and patient interviews were undertaken to develop a patient-reported questionnaire assessing spectacle independence. Draft items were assessed and revised in a series of cognitive interviews where the instructions, recall period, and response categories were evaluated for understandability and ...

The effects of aberrations on image quality and the objectively assessed depth of focus (DoF) were studied. Aberrometry data from 80 young subjects with a range of refractive errors was used for computing the visual Strehl ratio based on the optical transfer function(VSOTF), and then, through-focus simulations were performed in order to calculate the objective DoF (using two different relative thresholds of 50% and 80%; and two different pupil diameters) and the image quality (the peak VSOTF). B...

This study compares the clinical through-focus visual acuity (VA) in patients implanted with different intraocular lens (IOL) to optical bench testing of the same IOLs to evaluate the suitability of optical metrics of predicting clinical VA. Modulation transfer function and phase transfer function for different spatial frequencies and US Air Force pictures were measured using an optical bench for two monofocal IOLs, three multifocal IOLs and an extended range of vision IOL. Four preclinical metr...

PURPOSE: A recent randomised controlled trial indicated that providing long-term multifocal wearers with a pair of distance single-vision spectacles for use outside the home reduced falls risk in active older people. However, it also found that participants disliked continually switching between using two pairs of glasses and adherence to the intervention was poor. In this study we determined whether intermediate addition multifocals (which could be worn most of the time inside and outside the h...

Purpose To evaluate the index of contrast sensitivity (ICS) in eyes after cataract surgery with various intraocular lens designs and to compare with the area under log contrast sensitivity curve (AULCSF). Methods The study comprised 395 eyes of 198 patients in the age of 73.1 ± 7.86 years receiving 11 different aspheric IOL designs (aberration-free and correcting) and a spherical (IOL) as control group. Follow-up examination after bilateral cataract surgery was completed within 71 ± 21.4 days af...

A new class of enhanced range of vision intraocular lenses (IOLs) has been introduced recently to cope with compromises of diffractive optics in patients aiming for spectacle independence. Few information is available about their optical function. We aimed to analyze higher order aberrations of four of these new wavefront-shaped IOLs under standardized conditions. Two recently developed enhanced monofocal and two recently developed enhanced depth of focus IOLs (power 22 D) were analyzed by a Sha...
PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of two intraocular lenses (IOLs). The new monofocal IOL using a higher-order aspheric optic (Tecnis Eyhance ICB00) was compared to a standard monofocal IOL (Tecnis monofocal ZCB00) of the identical platform and material. METHODS: The medical records of the patients who had undergone cataract surgery with implantation of either the ZCB00 or the ICB00 in the dominant eye from March 2020 to August 2020 and with available data from the 3-month visit were reviewed...
