4. Understand the available IOL technologies
It’s incumbent upon surgeons to know what IOL technologies are available in the marketplace and what the strengths and weaknesses are of each—in your own hands and in your own experience.
Some physicians may "chicken out" by giving patients a menu of IOLs and pushing the decision-making entirely onto them. That’s unfair: Patients don’t have the clinical knowledge or experience with presbyopia-correcting technologies to make that decision.
Rather, they are coming to you for your professional advice on what technology will help them to best achieve their goals. Taking your experience and applying it to the patient in front of you is what makes a good clinician.
