Dr Lewis Levitz authored an article on multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs), which was featured on mivision as a continuing professional development module for optometrists.
In the article, he addresses the historical issues associated with multifocal lenses and how ongoing development has rectified many of these. He also details the pros and cons of the range of IOL options, and highlights the importance of customising a lens solution to meet each individual patient’s needs and preferences.
Below is an excerpt from the article.
Published peer-reviewed evidence-based research finds multifocal intraocular lenses provide good distance, intermediate and near vision with less dependence on spectacles. Success requires careful patient selection, pre-operative counselling and ongoing post-operative care, which is best co-managed by the patient’s optometrist and ophthalmologist.
