The First prize for cataract posters was awarded to Daniel H Chang MD, USA, for his poster “Visual outcomes and defocus curve profile of a next-generation diffractive presbyopia-correcting intraocular lens”.
Prof. Gerd Auffarth, the Head of the David J Apple Laboratory, was co-author of Dr Chang’s poster which presented defocus curve and visual acuity outcomes from a multi-centre randomised study that included 148 patients bilaterally implanted with the TECNIS Synergy IOL or the +3.25D TECNIS Multifocal IOL
The study found that the TECNIS Synergy IOL maintained excellent continuous vision up to 33cm with distance vision better than 1.0 (20/20). Compared with the multifocal IOL, the TECNIS Synergy provided both better DCIVA and had a better range of vision.
The Second prize for cataract posters went to Grzegorz Łabuz from The Apple Lab in Heidelberg for his poster describing “Laboratory assessment of the effect of spectral filters on the optical performance in an extended-depth-of-focus intraocular lens”.
The work reported in this poster has been accepted for future publication (in December later this year) in the influential American Journal of Ophthalmology,
The Effect of a Spectral Filter on Visual Quality in Patients with an Extended-Depth-Of-Focus Intraocular Lens
