August 1, 2003

San Francisco-A novel accommodating IOL (FlexOptic, Quest Vision) designed to mimic the natural crystalline lens through an ability to change optic sphericity is a promising new alternative to treating presbyopia, with the potential for superior efficacy and safety relative to other options for surgical accommodative correction, said John D. Hunkeler, MD, at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery annual meeting.
