Title Glistenings with long-term follow-up of the Surgidev B20/20 polymethylmethacrylate intraocular lens
Date 2001-10
Description PURPOSE: To compare patient satisfaction with vision 12 months after implantation of a silicone or acrylic foldable intraocular lens (IOL). SETTING: John A. Moran Eye Center, University of Utah Medical Center, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. METHODS: Selection criteria included patients who had uneventful cataract extraction by phacoemulsification with a temporal clear corneal incision or superior scleral tunnel incision, a curvilinear capsulorhexis, and in-the-bag IOL placement. One hundred sixty-two patients surveyed had a mean follow-up of approximately 15 months (range 12 to 18 months). Patients were divided into 3 groups of 54 each based on IOL type: AMO SI-30/40, Alcon MA30BA, and Alcon MA60BA. All patients were surveyed over the telephone using a standardized questionnaire protocol. They were questioned about their perception of vision with best optical correction in relation to visual blurring symptoms, glare symptoms, night vision, near vision, and overall vision. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in patient satisfaction among the 3 IOL groups in visual blurring or night vision. Patients in the SI-30/40 and MA60BA groups reported significantly higher satisfaction with glare symptoms, near vision, and overall satisfaction than patients in the MA30BA group. CONCLUSION: The SI-30/SI-40 and the MA60BA IOLs received significantly higher patient satisfaction scores than the MA30BA IOL in glare symptoms, near vision, and overall satisfaction.
