Understand patient expectations in residual refractive error with presbyopic IOLs

WAILEA, Hawaii — There are surgical and nonsurgical options for the management of patients who were implanted with a presbyopic IOL and have residual refractive error, according to Audrey Talley Rostov, MD.
“It’s important to meet patient expectations and have patient considerations [in mind],” Rostov said at Hawaiian Eye 2018.
Rostov recommends determining if the patient is functional and if there is any co-existing pathology. Understanding the best-corrected vision is also important.
Determine whether the refractive is stable or unstable. Be sure to carefully evaluate
