Controversies in Accommodating IOLs

  Channels: Refractive | Posted 10/12/2016

Steven Dell, MD, explains that advances in multifocal IOL technology and the release of extended-depth-of-focus lenses has raised the bar for the performance of accommodating IOLs. The Crystalens (Bausch + Lomb) is the accommodating IOL most familiar to US surgeons, but its mechanism of action, Dr. Dell notes, remains a subject of controversy. He argues that pure axial movement alone has limited potential for accommodating IOL designs and describes two technologies in development that use other mechanisms of action.
