Abstract
Multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOLs) are effective in treating presbyopia before cataracts develop. This study measured health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) after clear lens extraction (CLE) and MIOL implantation.
Before-and-After study.
Patients were treated in Medilaser Coronaria, CorGroup, Oulu, Finland. HRQoL was measured by a generic 15 dimension (15D) instrument. VRQoL was measured with VF-14 questionnaire.
CLE and MIOL implantation was performed in 137 patients. The patient age was 57 ± 6.2 years (mean±standard deviation), and 58% were women. The near add was 2.1±0.3 diopters. The overall HRQoL 15D score increased from 0.938±0.058 to 0.955±0.057 at 6 months (p
