Purpose: To evaluate the astigmatism tolerance and the visual outcomes after implantation of a premium intraocular lens (IOL) with a continuous transitional focus (Precizon Presbyopic; Ophtec BV) in pseudophakic presbyopia correction. Methods: This prospective study enrolled 20 patients (40 eyes) after bilateral phacoemulsification and IOL implantation. Corrected and uncorrected visual acuities at 4 m and 80, 67, and 40 cm (CDVA, UDVA, DCI80VA, UI80VA, DCI67VA, UI67VA, DCNVA, and UNVA), astigmatic and spheric defocus curve, mean reading speed (MRS), critical print size (CPS), contrast sensitivity, optical aberrations (modulation transfer function [MTF] cut-off, Strehl ratio, and higher order aberration root mean square [HOA RMS]), objective halometry, and National Eye Institute Refractive Error Quality of Life Instrument 42 [NEI RQL-42] questionnaire were evaluated 3 months after surgery. Results: Astigmatic defocus curves revealed a tolerance up to -1.00 and +0.75 diopters (D) for with-the-rule astigmatism, and up to -1.00 and +1.00 D for against-the-rule astigmatism. Binocular spheric defocus curve showed that the mean visual acuity was greater than 0.15 logMAR from 1.00 to -1.00 D. MRS, CPS, MTF cut-off, Strehl ratio, and HOA RMS were 116.97 ± 21.94 words/min, 0.45 ± 0.06 logRDA, 20.03 ± 4.86 cycles/degree, 0.11 ± 0.07, and 0.28 ± 0.09, respectively. Contrast sensitivity was within the normal range for all tested light conditions. The NEI RQL-42 evidenced high subjective satisfaction for all subscales, especially for far vision, activity limitations, dependence on correction, suboptimal correction, appearance, and satisfaction with correction. Conclusions: The Precizon Presbyopic IOL allows good astigmatism tolerance and both objective and subjective high quality of vision.
