    Background To investigate optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements following implantation of the LENTIS Mplus multifocal IOL, compared with a control group. Methods OCT scans were performed on 50 eyes with the Topcon 3D OCT-1000 in two groups of patients. The first group consisted of patients following implantation of the LENTIS Mplus, and a second group of age-matched control eyes following implantation of a monofocal aspheric IOL. Macular thickness and macular volume values were compared between groups and assessment for any onscreen visible artifacts. Results OCT scans were successfully performed in all 50 eyes with no visible artifacts in either group during scan acquisitions. There were no statistically significant differences (p>0.05) in any measured or calculated macular thickness or volume values between the two groups. Conclusions OCT measurements with the Topcon 3D OCT- 1000 is possible and free from visible artifacts in eyes which have had the LENTIS Mplus multifocal IOL implanted. Macular thickness and volume values were similar to those of an age-matched control group of monofocal aspheric IOLs.
