The latest iteration of a certain IOL family (enVista, Bausch + Lomb) is receiving positive feedback from early surgical users.
For starters, the MX60E opens in about 20 seconds compared with 2.5 minutes for previous versions as well as superior intermediate vision results.
"Of my first 45 patients, 97.7% were 20/30 uncorrected intermediate and 62% were 20/25," said Dee Stephenson, MD, the first surgeon to use the enVista MX60E.
"Thirty-five percent were 20/20 and 100% were 20/40 or better," said Dr. Stephenson, of Stephenson Eye Associates, Venice, FL. "This was in all takers, no astigmatism correction, just a monofocal IOL.
"It's not a premium lens, but you could almost use it as a premium lens because it gives you such great intermediate vision," she said. "Eighty-six percent of all of my patients can read their hand-held devices without glasses."
Dr. Stephenson reported more detailed results on a large cohort of patients at the 2018 meeting of the American Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
