AIM: To evaluate clinical outcomes following implantation of an extended range of vision intraocular lens (IOL), the ZXR00, and a diffractive multifocal IOL with +2.75 diopters (D) add power, the ZKB00. METHODS: Totally 30 patients who underwent either bilateral implantation of the ZXR00 IOL with intended emmetropia (ZXR00 emmetropia group: 20 eyes) and intended micromonovision (ZXR00 monovision group: 20 eyes), or bilateral implantation of the ZKB00 IOL with intended emmetropia (ZKB00 group: 20 eyes) were included in this study. Visual acuity at 4 m, 80, and 40 cm; and the types of halos (misty, fine, and rainbow) were analyzed at one and three months after surgery. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in distance visual acuity among the three groups. The mean uncorrected intermediate visual acuity was better in the ZXR00 emmetropia and monovision groups (0.02 logMAR and 0.02 logMAR, respectively) than in the ZKB00 group (0.14 logMAR). The mean uncorrected near visual acuity was worse in the ZXR00 emmetropia group (0.26 logMAR) than in the ZXR00 monovision and ZKB00 groups (0.12 logMAR and 0.10 logMAR, respectively). There was an increased incidence of rainbow halos in the ZKB00 group vs in either ZXR00 group (P=0.033). CONCLUSION: Implantation of the ZXR00 IOL with intended micromonovision provide superior visual acuity than implantation of the ZXR00 IOL with intended emmetropia. The ZXR00 IOLs tend to show a lower incidence of rainbow halos than did the ZKB00 IOL.
