Researchers conducted a 6-month study of patients implanted with the AcrySof IQ PanOptix presbyopia-correcting IOL to determine the binocular defocus curve of the lens. They concluded that these early results show good visual performance across the whole range of defocus. No unexpected adverse events were reported

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.
