To evaluate visual outcomes and satisfaction of patients younger than 40 years who underwent refractive lens exchange (RLE) with trifocal intraocular lens (IOL) for hyperopia.
Clinica Baviera, Spain.
In this retrospective study, we included patients younger than 40 years who underwent bilateral RLE with trifocal IOL for hyperopia. The main outcome measures were safety, efficacy, predictability, and complications. Furthermore, a subjective questionnaire was completed by patients at the end of the follow-up period.
From september 2012 to March 2019, we found 173 eligible patients (346 eyes). The mean age was 35.5 years (range 21 to 39) and the mean preoperative spherical equivalent +6 diopters (D) (range +1.76 to +10.75). After a mean follow-up of 8.6 months ± 8.6 (SD), the safety and efficacy indexes were 1.06 and 1.02, respectively. Predictability ± 1.00 D was 99.3%. No intraoperative complications occurred. Both eyes of one patient suffered glaucoma. Ninety eight percent of patients reported that they were satisfied or very satisfied.
Refractive lens exchange for hyperopia in patients younger than 40 years is effective, safe, and predictable with a very high rate of satisfaction.
