Purpose : To investigate visual outcomes after implantation of Symfony and FINE VISION. Methods : Symfony was implanted in 71 eyes of 45 patients and FINE VISION was implanted in 83 eyes of 51 patients at Nippon Medical School Musashikosugi Hospital between June 2014 and July 2019. Uncorrected and corrected visual acuity for far (5 m), intermediate (60 cm) and near (33 cm) distance, contrast sensitivity, and visual defocus curve were measured, and patient satisfaction were evaluated at 1 month after surgery. Results : The mean uncorrected visual acuity (log MAR) with Symfony was 0.31 (0.49) for near, −0.14 (1.36) for intermediate, and 0.03 (0.94) for distance, while with FINE VISION 0.16 (0.70) for near, 0.12 (0.75) for intermediate, and −0.02 (1.05) for distance. Near visual acuity was better with FINE VISION, while intermediate visual acuity was better with Symfony (p<0.05). The average of contrast sensitivities in Symfony cases were within the range of standards under 40 years old. However, those in FINE VISION cases were out of the range in the high frequency range. Conclusion : Near visual acuity with FINE VISION was better than that with Symfony. Both IOLs provided good visual acuity at far and intermediate distance.
