PEREZ CANDELARIA, Eneida et al. Visual results achieved in patients operated on from cataract with the use of OcuFlex multifocal intraocular lenses. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.2, pp. 185-195. ISSN 1561-3070.
OBJECTIVE: To describe the visual results of 8 patients operated on from bilateral cataract using Phaco-chop technique and implantation of OcuFlex multifocal intraocular lens at "Ramón Pando Ferrer" Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology from September 2007 to February 2008. METHODS: A prospective, longitudinal, observational and descriptive study was conducted to analyze variables such as age, sex, visual acuity without correction and best corrected acuity at different focal distances. Summary measures were used in analyzing data, with the support of Microsoft Excel and Word 2003 system for Windows XP. RESULTS: It was found that average age was 68.5 years. The average visual acuity for far distances before and after surgery, monocular and spontaneous (without correction) was 0.17 and 0.8 respectively whereas corrected visual acuity was 0.41 and 0.98 respectively. At the postoperative phase, the spontaneous monocular vision in 93.75 % of patients reached J3 or better as intermediate visual acuity and J1 as near visual acuity. CONCLUSIONS: The multifocal lenses reduce the dependency on glasses after cataract surgery, which is a good choice for the recovery of optimal vision.
