Diffractive multifocal lens reduces halo complaints

December 15, 2002

Nice, France-The diffractive/refractive, fold-able, multifocal AcrySof IOL (study model MA60D3, Alcon, Fort Worth, TX) achieves similar mean distance vision and better near vision compared with the Array multifocal SA40N IOL (AMO, Santa Ana, CA), an FDA-approved IOL. Importantly, patients reported significantly fewer complaints of halos compared with the SA40N IOL, according to Philippe Dublineau, MD.
