Presbyopia Correcting IOLs

Presbyopia-correcting intraocular lenses (IOLs) provide a treatment option for presbyopic patients who do not qualify for laser refractive surgery and do not want to rely on reading glasses. Presbyopia-correcting IOLs can be divided into three broad categories: multifocal IOLs, extended depth of focus IOLs, and accommodative IOLs. Presbyopia-correcting IOLs are designed to provide clear vision at multiple focal points, including distance, intermediate, and near vision.

Presbyopia-correcting IOLs can reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery for a wider range of activities. Each lens has unique advantages and compromises, successfully selecting a lens for a particular patient depends on a thorough understanding of the patient’s priorities and characteristics of each IOL.
