    Accommodative lens outcomes less than stellar

    Orlando—An evaluation of 4 randomized clinical trials found no evidence to recommend the use of accommodative IOLs, said Hon Shing Ong, MBBS.

    Participants who received accommodative IOLs had improvements in near vision at 6 months and at 12 months after surgery, compared with those who received monofocal IOLs.

    “(But) such improvements were small and reduced with time,” said Dr. Ong, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London.

    Dr. Ong’s group searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and found 256 eyes (148 in the accommodative group and 108 in the monofocal group). All eyes that received an accommodative lens were implanted with the HumanOptics 1CU.
