Breakthrough Study Reveals Remarkable Improvements in Vision Quality with Multifocal Intraocular Lenses
In the ever-evolving world of eye care, recent research by Professor Jonathan Moore, Mr. Stephen Stewart, and Mr. Richard McNeely has opened new doors to enhancing postoperative visual performance and the quality of vision (QoV) for patients. Their groundbreaking study, conducted at the renowned Cathedral Eye Clinic, examined the outcomes of implanting complementary continuous phase multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) in 44 patients.
The results have been nothing short of astonishing. In this article, we will delve into the highlights of their findings.
Significant Improvement in Quality of Vision:
One of the most remarkable findings of this study was the significant improvement in QoV experienced by patients. 3 to 12 months post-surgery, participants reported a substantial enhancement in both daytime and nighttime vision. This improvement alone is a testament to the effectiveness of the Artis Symbiose IOLs used in the study.
Reduction in Halos:
Another noteworthy discovery was the significant reduction in halos reported by patients at the 12-month mark. Halos can be a common concern for individuals who undergo eye surgery, and this reduction is a promising development that can improve the overall visual experience for patients.
Spectacle Independence Achieved:
Perhaps the most impressive result was the achievement of spectacle independence in a remarkable 93.2% of cases at the 12-month follow-up. This means that the majority of patients no longer needed to rely on glasses or contact lenses for their daily activities, a life-changing outcome that significantly enhances their quality of life.

Presentation at the European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons:
Professor Moore recently presented these exceptional results at the Cristalens International booth during the European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons conference. The presentation garnered significant attention and sparked discussions among leading professionals in the field. It underscores the importance of this study and its potential to reshape the future of eye care.
The research conducted by Professor Jonathan Moore, Mr. Stephen Stewart, and Mr. Richard McNeely at Cathedral Eye Clinic represents a significant leap forward in the world of ophthalmology. The findings of their study provide hope for patients seeking improved vision and a higher quality of life after cataract surgery. As Cathedral Eye Clinic continues to push the boundaries of eye care, we can expect more innovations and breakthroughs that will benefit patients around the world.
