To Learn about the outcomes of the first Trifocal lOL by a statistical anaysis of visual outcomes and patient satisfaction. There will be at least 100 patients to include Distance, Intermediate and Near Vision measurements. These patients comprise all appropriate candidates including virgin corneas, post refractive, and mixed & matched IOL's
This is a prospective study to include data from 2 surgeons from a single center for a good sample size. All 1 month and 3 month data will be reported when possible. Techniques will include Manual and Femto assisted cataract surgery, with and without ORA. The visual outcome measurements will include Distance, Intermediate and Near. These will include both monocular and binocular uncorrected and distance corrected vision. A Patient satisfaction survery will be reported as well. Subsets will be broken down to include post refractive surgery, pre treatment for dry eye, and mixed and matched IOL's.
At 1-3 months, 85% of patients had DCVA > or = to 20/25. 72% had 20/20 or better UCIVA. 100% of patients could see J2 with DCNVA. Patient survey revealed 95% had none to mild Glare, with 5% having Moderate glare. 68% reported None to mild halos with 31% moderate. No reports of disabling halos or positive Dysphotopsias were found.79% never use glasses, and 21% use them rarely for fine near tasks. 86% reported an 8-10 level of happiness on a 1-10 scale, and 92% had an 8-10 quality of vision on a 1-10 scale with 10 being the best. 95% would have the same lens again.
In conclusion, the patients who present to any practice whether post lasik or virgin eyes, will have similar results to the FDA study. They have extremely high patient satisfaction and excellent vision. Even with mild to moderate halos, these patients would still have the same lens again and are very happy with their results.
