Abstract Details


To evaluate visual and optical performance of eyes following phacoemulsification and trifocal lens (AT.LISA tri839MP, Carl Zeiss Meditech) implantation.


C.M.A. Centro Microchirurgia Ambulatoriale, Monza, Italy


20 eyes of 10 patients (70,50 ± 5.26 years old) underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification and IOL implantation. Preloaded trifocal AT LISA tri839MP IOL was implanted using BLUEMIXS 180 injector. The following visual and refractive parameters postoperatively were measured: distance (5m) near (30cm) and intermediate (70 cm) visual acuities, corneal topography and aberrometry, contrast sensitivity and defocus curve. The Follow-up period was day 1, 7,30,90,180 after surgery.


Preoperative UCVA 0.31 ± 0.25 and postoperative UCVA at six months 0.98 ± 0.05 Monocular Near Vision at six months was 20/25 and Binocular Near Vision 20/18. Monocular Intermediate Vision 33.75 Binocular Intermediate Vision 20/20.5.


AT.LISA tri839 MP provides good far and near vision as well as good intermediate visual acuity. This lens also allows better diffraction efficiency, contrast sensitivity and improves quality of vision.
