Abstract: center dot PURPOSE: Multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOLs) are effective in treating presbyopia before cataracts develop. This study measured health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) after clear lens extraction (CLE) and MIOL implantation. center dot DESIGN: Before-and-after study center dot METHODS: Patients were treated in Medilaser Coronaria, CorGroup, Oulu, Finland. HRQoL was measured by a generic 15-dimension (15D) instrument. VRQoL was measured with Visual Function Index-14 (VF-14) questionnaire. center dot RESULTS: CLE and MIOL implantation was performed in 137 patients. The patient age was 57 +/- 6.2 years (mean +/- standard deviation), and 58% were women. The near add was 2.1 +/- 0.3 diopters (D). The overall HRQoL 15D score increased from 0.938 +/- 0.058 to 0.955 +/- 0.057 at 6 months ( P < .0001 vs baseline) and to 0.948 +/- 0.060 at 1 year ( P = .02 vs baseline). The VRQoL VF14 score increased from 85.32 +/- 15.57 to 96.57 +/- 5.07 at 6 months ( P < .0001 vs baseline) and to 96.61 +/- 6.48 at 1 year ( P < .0001 vs baseline). The increase of HRQoL was correlated with the increase of VRQoL ( P < .04). center dot CONCLUSIONS: CLE and MIOL implantation improved HRQoL and VRQoL compared to spectacles in this 1-year follow-up study. Improvement of HRQoL was correlated with VRQoL. (c) 2021 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Inc.
