Replacement of multifocal by monofocal intraocular lens in two cases for asthenopia and photophobia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Purpose : To report two cases who received replacement of multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) by monofocal IOL due to postoperative dissatisfaction. Cases : A 75-year-old male received bilateral cataract surgery with implantation of diffractive multifocal IOL. Asthenopia and photophobia became worse after surgery. In accordance to his wish, the multifocal IOL was replaced by monofocal IOL 4 months later. His subjective complaints persisted but improved after treatment for essential blepharospasm. Another 52-year-old female received similar bilateral cataract surgery with implantation of refractive multifocal IOL. The lens was replaced by monofocal one due to photophobia 4 months later. Her subjective complaints persisted. Conclusion : These cases illustrate that replacement of multifocal by monofocal IOL due to dissatisfaction of patients need careful considerations.
