A new non-apodized diffractive trifocal IOL allows 88% energy utilization and sends energy to near (40 cm), a preferred intermediate distance (60 cm), and far (infinity). Early results for visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and photopic symptoms are encouraging.
In this month's Clinical Round Up, Sharon Freedman, MD, discusses results of the Infant Aphasia Treatment Study, and how it found there is no glaucoma protection from primary IOL placement in children. Additionally, Barbara Parolini, MD, discusses the new hope for better myopic traction maculopathy outcomes.
Dr Thomassen shares his personal experiences with the MFR2 IOL, including reasons why the MFR2 is his lens of preference, clinical findings from a real-life setting and considerations for future use.
In what is believed to be the largest reported series of spontaneous in-the-bag IOL dislocation, investigators analyze presenting characteristics and outcomes for 21 eyes with a capsular tension ring (CTR) and 84 eyes without one.
