Some patients are unhappy even with Snellen visual acuity of 20/20 or better. While it may sometimes be tempting to dismiss these patients as unreasonable or “crazy,” understanding what makes these patients dissatisfied even with good Snellen visual is important for their proper management, says Daniel H. Chang, MD.
A multicomponent IOL system featuring an exchangeable front optic (PreciSight Lens, InfiniteVision Optics, Strasbourg, France) is showing promise for providing a reliable, reproducible, safe, simple, and time-independent solution for achi
Combining two different power aspheric diffractive multifocal IOLs in fellow eyes provides better visual performance than implanting the same power lens bilaterally, and outcomes with the mixed approach are better using a lower add IOL in
With modern presbyopia-correcting IOLs, patients are generally happy with their quality of vision after surgery.
Findings from a retrospective comparison of data from prospective studies of presbyopia-correcting IOLs highlight the performance similarities and differences of different technologies.
A novel extended-depth-of-focus (EDOF) IOL (Mini WELL IOL, SIFI Medtech) is providing very favorable functional and safety outcomes that correspond with a high degree of patient satisfaction, according to data collected by ophthalmologist
The latest iteration of a certain IOL family (enVista, Bausch + Lomb) is receiving positive feedback from early surgical users.
I have long been an advocate of giving patients the best possible uncorrected distance vision with toric IOLs.
Findings from a pilot study show that a novel accommodative intraocular lens (AIOL, Lumina, Akkolens) provides a true accommodative response that is maintained for at least 2 years and preserved following Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy.
