Objective. To evaluate the postoperative visual quality of cataract patients with extreme myopia after implantation of aspheric
intraocular lenses (IOLs). Methods. Thirty-three eyes were enrolled in this prospectivestudy. Eighteen eyes with an axial length
longer than 28 mm were included in the extreme myopia group, and the other 15 eyes were included in the nonextreme myopia
group. Phacoemulsification and aspheric IOL implantation were performed. Six months after cataract surgery, best-corrected visual
acuity (BCVA), contrast sensitivity, and wavefront aberrations were measured, and subjective visual quality was assessed. Results.
The BCVA improved significantly after surgery for both groups, and patients in the nonextreme myopia group achieved better
postoperative BCVA due to better retinal status of the eyes. The evaluation of contrast sensitivity without glare was the same in
both groups, whereas patients in the nonextreme myopia group performed better at intermediate spatial frequencies under glare
conditions. The two groups did not show a significant difference in high-order aberrations. With regard to subjective visual quality,
the composite scores of both groups did not differ significantly. Conclusions. Aspheric IOLs provided good visual outcomes in
cataract patients with extreme myopia. These patients should undergo careful evaluation to determine the maculopathy severity
level before surgery.

1. Introduction
The spherical aberration of the cornea is positive and that
of the lens is negative in the young, healthy eye, and
these differences have a compensatory relationship [1, 2].
Decreased optical quality occurs in the aging eye as the
spherical aberration of the lens becomes gradually positive
and thus loses its ability to compensate for the corneal
aberration, which changes little with increasing age [1–5].
Conventional spherical intraocular lenses (IOLs) act as
an aging lens in which positive spherical aberration cannot
compensate for the corneal aberration. Aspheric IOLs can
decrease the total amount of ocular spherical aberration
after cataract surgery due to their introduction of negative spherical aberration. It has been shown that aspheric
aberration-correcting IOLs effectively reduce ocular aberration and improve contrast sensitivity in patients with agerelated cataracts [6–15]. However, little is known about the
safety and effectiveness of aspheric IOLs in patients with
extreme myopia. Therefore, we performed the current study

to evaluate the clinical effects of aspheric IOL implantation
in cataract patients with extreme myopia by comparing the
objective and subjective visual quality achieved with that
achieved in nonextreme myopic eyes.
We chose the MC X11 ASP lens (HumanOptics AG) as
our experimental IOL because it is currently the only aspheric
IOL with a negative power. The MC X11 ASP lens is a onepiece hydrophilic acrylic IOL with a prolate posterior surface
that introduces negative spherical aberration to the ocular
system. The overall length of this IOL is 11.0 mm. The optic
diameter varies from 5.5 mm to 7.0 mm depending on the
power of the IOL. IOLs with a power of 18.0 diopter or less
have an optic diameter of 7.0 mm. This IOL can be implanted
through a 1.8 mm microincision.

2. Methods

phacoemulsification and IOL implantation surgery between
