Purpose: To compare the clinical outcomes of cataract surgery using the ARTIS PL E (Cristalens Industrie, Lannion, France) intraocular lens (IOL) and conventional Tecnis ZCB00 (Johnson and Johnson Vision, Santa Ana, CA, USA) IOL. Methods: This retrospective study examined patients who underwent in-The-bag implantation of either an ARTIS PL E (33 eyes, group A) or Tecnis ZCB00 (45 eyes, group B) IOL after phacoemulsification performed by a single surgeon. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), spherical equivalent, and higher-order aberrations (HOA) were measured 1 and 3 months after cataract surgery. Results: Preoperative BCVA did not differ significantly in groups A and B. Postoperative BCVA at 1 and 3 months improved significantly (p 0.001) in both groups compared to preoperative baseline BCVA. At 1 and 3 months postoperatively, total HOA, spherical aberration, and coma were significantly lower compared to the preoperative baseline HOA (p 0.05) in both groups. However, there were no significant differences in the trefoil values 1 and 3 months postoperatively compared to the preoperative baseline in both groups. The absolute refractive error 3 months postoperatively was 0.27 ± 0.20 (group A) and 0.28 ± 0.20 (group B), both within ± 0.50 diopters of the targeted goal diopter; there were no significant differences in the accuracy or predictability of the IOL power calculation in both groups (p = 0.390, p = 0.959). The absolute refractive error 1 and 3 months postoperatively did not differ significantly; there were no significant differences in the stability of both IOLs (p = 0.482, p = 0.372). Conclusions: Conventional cataract surgery using the ARTIS PL E IOL significantly increased the BCVA, while obtaining comparable clinical results to the verified Tecnis ZCB00 IOL in postoperative visual acuity and HOA.
