New extended depth of focus IOL design offers good MTF over wide dioptric interval

June 26, 2017

Results for a new aspheric IOL with double spherical aberration in the central 3-mm pupil aperture zone suggest the lens provides good visual acuity between 4 m and 50 cm, according to a study.

The Mini WELL IOL (SIFI) is an extended depth of focus IOL with no diffractive rings that was tested at the optical bench for depth of focus and sensitivity to tilt, decentration and angle kappa, with visual acuity simulations ranging from 4 m to 50 cm. Results suggested good visual acuity up to 2 D of pseudoaccommodation and favored distance vision at a 4.5-mm pupil aperture.
