TitleOutcome of Zeiss AT LARA EDOF lens implantation in vitrectomized eyes
PurposeTo report patient satisfaction after unilateral/bilateral extended depth-of-focus (EDOF) intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in a young population after vitrectomy.
MethodsPatients that underwent phaco-vitrectomy or phaco after vitrectomy with an AT LARA EDOF IOL at the University Hospital Leuven, aging between 18 and 60 years, were asked to fill out a questionnaire. The questionnaire was based on the Catquest, NAVQ, and APPLES questionnaires to assess overall visual quality, near vision quality, and visual disturbances. A retrospective data collection was performed.
ResultsA total of 89 participants (average age 56.6 years) filled out the questionnaire of which 54.7% received a unilateral EDOF IOL. The most common indications for vitrectomy were floaters (38.4%), retinal detachments (35%), and puckers (15.2%). The Catquest score and NAVQ score respectively showed a good overall satisfaction (3.44/4.0), a good intermediate vision (3.55/4.0), and an average near vision (2.75/4.0). The APPLES score showed only little visual disturbances. There were no differences between the unilateral and bilateral group, except for spectacle use, which was lower in the bilateral group. Participants that underwent vitrectomy in case of floaters reported lower satisfaction rates. Other variables, like the pre-operative refraction, had no impact on both satisfaction and visual disturbances.
ConclusionBoth unilateral and bilateral implantation of the AT LARA EDOF IOL showed a high satisfaction with no differences between both groups, except for a lower spectacle use in the latter. Hence, The AT LARA is a valid choice in patients undergoing vitrectomy at a younger age, even for unilateral use.
