Another publication from the David J Apple Center for Vision Research: in the latest Journal of Refractive Surgery, the Heidelberg group evaluated the visual outcomes when thirteen cataract patients received a small-aperture IC-8 IOL (AcuFocus, Irvine, CA) in one eye and a segmental-refractive Lentis Mplus LS-313 MF20 IOL (Oculentis, Berlin, Germany) in the fellow eye.
Dr Isabella Baur summarised the results:
“five months after the operation, the mean binocular visual results demonstrated UDVA, UIVA, and UNVA values of -0.04 ± 0.11, 0.00 ± 0.10, and 0.11 ± 0.08 logMAR, respectively.
The binocular distance-corrected reading performance test also confirmed the improved visual function, with an
The mean halo size was 32.54 ± 22.38, mean halo intensity was 34.46 ± 21.95, mean glare size was 9.00 ± 17.47, and mean glare intensity was 9.92 ± 16.84.
