Aberrometry in patients implanted with accommodative intraocular lenses, published in AJO
The study uses custom-developed ray tracing aberrometry to unravel the mechanisms of the accommodative intraocular lens, Crystalens. Measurements on 22 patients do not reveal significant changes in focus upon accommodative demand. However, changes in high order terms, and an increased depth-of-focus (although minor) with respect to control groups of young and monofocal-implanted aged-matched patients, suggest pseudoaccommodative effects, but not truly accommodative, with this IOL. The study appears in May issue of the American Journal of Ophthalmology.
