PURPOSE: To clinically evaluate visual performance of the AcrySof IQ PanOptix TFNT00 and AT LISA tri 839MP intraocular lenses (IOLs) in binocular visual acuity (VA) and to characterize low-contrast visual performance at 6 months postimplantation. SETTING: Multicenter, 15 sites. DESIGN: Prospective, parallel-group, randomized, double-masked, postmarketing clinical study. METHODS: Binocular uncorrected distance (UDVA, 4 m), intermediate (UIVA, 60 cm), and near (UNVA, 40 cm) visual acuities and binocular defocus curves were evaluated under photopic lighting conditions. Photopic and mesopic contrast sensitivities with and without glare were assessed. RESULTS: The study included 182 subjects (62% women; mean age, 66 ± 9.4 years) who were implanted bilaterally with the TFNT00 IOL (n = 93) or 839MP IOL (n = 89), and binocular VA was evaluated 4 to 6 months (120-180 days) postimplantation. The TFNT00 IOL group showed superior visual outcomes compared with the 839MP IOL group in binocular UIVA (P = .001) and UNVA (P = .003) and noninferior outcomes in UDVA (95% CI, -0.023 to 0.041; upper limit <0.1 logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution [logMAR] [margin of noninferiority]). Mean defocus curve from 0.00 to -3.00 diopter (D) ranged from 0.1 to 0.0 logMAR for both IOLs; better mean VA values (logMAR) were observed in the TFNT00 IOL group between -1.50 and -2.50 D compared with those of the 839MP IOL group. Contrast sensitivity values were similar between the 2 groups in all conditions. CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study showed improved visual performance at near and intermediate distances with the TFNT00 IOL compared with that of the 839MP IOL.
