To evaluate the clinical results of toric trifocal diffractive intraocular lens in eyes with cataract and mild keratoconus.


Five keratoconus patients (10 eyes) that had bilateral AT LISA 939 implantation were selected and had followed in 3-time horizons of 1, 3, and 6 months. Patients were 46 to 65 years old age, corneal astigmatism of (2.00 D at 6.75 D) and cataract that all of them needed cataract surgery. The distance, intermediate and near visual acuities, defocus curve, ocular aberrations, contrast sensitivity, were measured as effectiveness criteria.


Average of binocular uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) improved from 0.72 log MAR ± 0.11 (SD) to 0.04 ± 0.04 (P < 0.05) log MAR, average of uncorrected binocular intermediate visual acuity (UIVA) (80 cm) improved from 0.52 ± 0.07 log MAR to 0.14 ± 0.04 (P < 0.05) log MAR, and average of binocular uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA) improved from 0.48 ± 0.09 log MAR to 0.02 ± 0.07 (P < 0.05) log MAR at 6 months, respectively. Contrast sensitivity testing showed acceptable results, the binocular defocus curve corroborate were in appropriate good visual acuity even at the intermediate distances, by a gentle slope less than log MAR 0.2 at −1.5 D, with regard to the best distance visual acuity at the 0 D defocus.


Trifocal AT LISA 939MP IOLs provided appropriate distances, near and intermediate of the visual results. Prediction of the refractive results and optical performances were good.
