SUMMARY

Patients with previous laser correction – are presbyopia-correcting IOLs a suitable option?

Cataract surgery has become more sophisticated thanks to an increasing variety of optical IOL designs and the advancement of IOL calculation formulas. These days even more patients can benefit from the new technologies available. With easy access to information, patient expectations regarding visual outcomes are increasing, including the desire for spectacle independency.
The increasing trend of laser vision correction has made IOL selection and calculation more complex. What is the ideal combination for a patient with previous myopic laser surgery treatment? Is there any difference in IOL selection for patients with pervious hyperopic laser correction?
