The orientation of “Mplus” intraocular lenses should be changed for each patient

Recent research that the CiViUM carried out in colaboration with the department of Optics of the University of La Laguna has been published in one of the most prestigious journals of ophtalmology, the Journal of Refractive Surgery. It consisted of the simulation of the effects of a multifocal, assimetrical lens (Mplus) on vision when it was implanted in different orientations into the human eye.


The results indicate that when the surgery is personalized for each patient, an improvement of visual quality within the range from 20% to 121% can be achieved. This work may change the paradigm of premium cataract surgery, allowing for a significant improvement of results in the majority of patients. Link to the original article: here.
