NCT00576485
First received: December 18, 2007
Last updated: October 17, 2008

  Purpose

Purpose: To determine whether implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL) with a modified anterior aspheric surface results in reduced spherical aberration and improved contrast sensitivity after cataract surgery.

Design: Prospective, comparative, interventional case series.

Methods: In an intraindividual randomized prospective study of 25 patients with bilateral cataract, an IOL with a modified anterior surface (Tecnis Z9001, AMO- Group 1) was compared with biconvex lens with spherical surfaces (ClariFlex®, AMO- Group 2). Ocular aberrations for a 5.0 mm pupil and 6.0 mm pupil were measured with Hartmann-Shack aberrometer. Quality of vision was measured by visual acuity and contrast sensitivity under mesopic and photopic conditions. All patients were followed for 3 months.
