OPTIMIZING OUTCOMES WITH MULTIFOCAL INTRAOCULAR LENSES
Keywords:Toric intraocular lens, Multifocal, Phacoemulsification, Distance visual acuity, Refractive astigmatism
Modern day cataract surgery develops from a visual reconstructive to a refractive procedure. The appearance of multifocal intraocular lenses (MFIOLs) provides greater independence from glasses and improves the quality of life after surgery. MF-IOLs has undergone various technical improvements, including trifocal implants and implants with extended depth of vision, since its creation in the 1980s. A thorough pre-operative check, including the visual needs of the patients and the inherent eye anatomy, allows us to achieve excellent results. This review offers a comprehensive overview of the various types of MF-Iols and principles for optimizing results through comprehensive preoperative screening and treatment postoperative complications.
