Small-aperture IOL offers advantages over other presbyopia lenses
Small-aperture IOL offers advantages over other presbyopia lensesA new small-aperture intraocular lens (IOL) extends patients’ depth of focus as well as multifocal IOLs with fewer dysphotopsias, researchers say.
Study: LCS reduces use of ultrasound energyAnalyses of data from a large, prospective, comparative case series show that laser cataract surgery (LCS) significantly reduces use of ultrasound energy. Furthermore, outcomes from the most recent group of LCS cases shows that after laser lens fragmentation, cataract removal can be achieved in almost all eyes using aspiration only, said Burkhard Dick, MD, PhD.
