Purpose: Aspheric IOL´s are supposed to optimize optical characteristics of intraocular lenses (IOL). Therefore, it is essential to achieve an exact postoperative refraction and a central position of the IOL in the capsular bag.
Method: In 43 patients (mean age 70.9 ± 8.3 years) the Pharmacia Z9000 IOL was implanted after uneventful phacoemulsification in topical anesthesia. IOL calculation was performed with Holladay-, Haigis-, and SRKII-formula. 6 months after cataract surgery spherical equivalent and IOL centration was analysed. Measurement of centration was done by using slitlamp photographs which were evaluated by an image analysis program.
Results: Preoperative VA was 0.4 ± 0.2 and increased to 0.8 ± 0.1 (spherical equivalent 0.3 ± 0.6 D) 6 months after surgery. The difference between the preoperative calculated target refraction for a certain lenspower and the spherical equivalent evaluated postoperatively was determined: 0.6 ± 0.1 D for Holladay-,–0.2 ± 0.1 D for Haigis- and 0.9 ± 0.1 D for SRKII-formula. Mean IOL decentration from the optical axis was 0.4 ± 0.1 mm.
Conclusions: The aspheric IOL Z9000 showed very good postoperative functional results. A correct lens power calculation and a good central position of the IOL in the capsular bag are essential to optimize surgical outcomes. In this study the Haigis-form
