This implant gives patients a better chance to enjoy clear vision at all distances with maintained contrast sensitivity and lower visual disturbance.Yet while most ophthalmologists acknowledge that the newer versions of these lenses are better, the industry has yet to reach the ultimate goal: a lens that delivers essentially perfect distance, medium and near vision.“The large number of choices in premium IOLs illustrates that nobody quite has it right,” said Jay A. METHOD: Prospective, non-comparative study of 18 patients (36 eyes) in whom a Synchrony® dual-optic lens was implanted bilaterally following cataract surgery.RESULTS: The mean age of the group studied was: 74 ± 6 years. The mean postoperative distance BCVA improved significantly, from 0.27 ± 0.17 log MAR, (0.53 on the decimal scale) to 0.06 ± 0.21 log MAR (0.96) six months after surgery (p 0.05).The newest versions of premium IOLs have improved over their predecessors, according to Bonnie A. “The changes for the new generation of the IOLs are based on patient outcomes and feedback the companies receive from surgeons.
