Abstract

Purpose: To compare the visual and refractive outcomes up to 1 year postoperatively following implantation of a refractive segmented or a refractive segmented toric multifocal intraocular lens (IOL). Methods: This retrospective study included 108 eyes of 64 patients who underwent cataract surgery with implantation of a refractive segmented multifocal IOL (Lentis Mplus LS-313 MF30 IOL) (LM group) and 81 eyes of 49 patients with implantation of a refractive segmented toric multifocal IOL (Lentis Mplus LU-313 MF30T IOL) (LMT group). The visual and refractive postoperative outcomes and the rate of additional refractive procedures were evaluated up to 1 year postoperatively. Results: The uncorrected distance visual acuity (VA) and uncorrected near VA exceeded 1.0 and 0.60 in decimal VA, respectively, and both were stable postoperative groups. The postoperative subjective refractive astigmatism was also stable and the postoperative refraction was near emmetropia in both groups. No significant differences were found in the need for additional surgical refractive procedures. Conclusion: The outcomes with a refractive segmented toric multifocal IOL were comparable to those with a non-toric model despite higher preoperative corneal astigmatism.
