Abstract

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to compare the contrast sensitivity function (CSF) between eyes of age‑matched individuals with aspheric intraocular lens (IOL) and emmetropia.METHODS: A prospective hospital‑based case–control study in South India was conducted to study the CSF in the eyes of patients between the ages of 50–60 years. The CSF was compared between those with emmetropia and those implanted with an indigenous aspheric IOL. Twenty‑five consecutive patients were recruited in both groups. The independent sample t‑test was used for analysis.RESULTS: The mean age was 53.08 ± 1.96 years and 57.68 ± 2.85 years in normal emmetropes and emmetropic pseudophakic with aspheric IOL, respectively. The mean CSF showed a statistically significant difference (P < 0.000) between the normal emmetropic eyes and pseudophakic eyes with the values being 1.91 and 1.572, respectively.CONCLUSION: The CSF was significantly better in the eyes of age‑matched normal emmetropes when compared to those with an aspheric IOL implanted.
