Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the stability of four different types of aspheric intraocular lenses (IOLs) after implantation. Methods: This retrospective study included 124 eyes implanted with four different types of aspheric IOLs including a one-piece four-loop fixed hydrophilic acrylic IOL, a one-piece flat fixed acrylic IOL, a one-piece two-loop fixed acrylic IOL, and a three-piece two-loop fixed silicone IOL. IOL decentration, tilt, and ocular coma-like aberration (coma) at one-week, one-month, three-month, and one-year time points were evaluated postoperatively. Results: IOL decentration, tilt, and coma in the AO, 36A, IQ, and KS-AiN implantation groups were statistically significantly different one week and one year postoperatively (p < 0.01). There were significant differences between each of the pairs of groups (p < 0.01), except for coma between the AO and 36A implantation groups one week postoperatively (p > 0.05). When comparing the different time points (ie, one week, one month, three months, and one year postoperatively), IOL decentration, tilt, and coma were significantly different in each group (p < 0.05). IOL decentration, tilt, and coma in each group increased over the period from one week to one year postoperatively. A positive linear correlation was observed between IOL decentration or tilt and coma one year postoperatively (p < 0.01). Conclusion: One-piece multi-point fixed acrylic IOLs demonstrate better stability when compared with three-piece two-point fixed silicone IOLs. IOL decentration, tilt, and coma increase gradually over time. Ocular coma-like aberrations are influenced by the stability of IOLs.
