• Cataract/Anterior Segment, Comprehensive Ophthalmology

    This prospective study was conducted at five European and included 93 patients implanted with the AcrySof IQ ReSTOR SN6AD1 IOL with +3.0 D add power. The lenses provided a broad range of optimum near vision, good intermediate visual acuity. At six months, uncorrected visual acuity (logMAR) was -0.03 ± 0.13 at 4 m, 0.20 ± 0.14 at 70 cm, 0.13 ± 0.15 at 60 cm, 0.05 ± 0.18 at 50 cm and 0.04 ± 0.11 at 40 cm. Mean patient-preferred near distance was 41 ± 4 cm, at which distance the mean visual acuity was -0.01 ± 0.11 logMAR.  Patients were highly satisfied with their vision, reporting low rates of visual disturbances, and 88 percent were spectacle independent.
