AMSTERDAM — Patient satisfaction is high and 81% of surgeons said their experience with a one-piece multifocal IOL was at least “somewhat better” than with other multifocal lenses they had tried, according to a presenter here.

In an open label, prospective, observational study, Daniel H. Chang, MD, and colleagues accumulated data in a registry to gauge patient outcomes and satisfaction, as well as surgeons’ early experience with the Tecnis ZMB00 one-piece multifocal IOL (Abbott Medical Optics).

“For patient satisfaction with their vision, 89% said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their vision,” Chang said at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting. “Ninety-five percent of surgeons would recommend the TMF to their family, friends or colleagues.”

Acuity results were good at all distances without glasses, Chang said, with mean visual acuity at distance being 20/23, at intermediate being 20/32 and at near being 20/24.
