Tecnis multifocal toric IOL can provide improved distance and near visual acuities

July 22, 2016

Patients who underwent cataract surgery with implantation of a diffractive multifocal toric IOL tended to experience “excellent” distance and near visual acuities with good intermediate visual acuity after the procedure, according to a study.

Researchers included 60 eyes of 30 patients with cataract and regular corneal astigmatism who had phacoemulsification with bilateral implantation of the Tecnis multifocal toric ZMT 150, 225, 300 or 400 IOL (Abbott Medical Optics) in a prospective study.
