In late June 2014 Abbott Medical Optics (AMO) announced that it had received the CE mark for its “TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision intraocular lens (IOL)“. So, Europeans get yet another advanced IOL that Americans will likely not have access to for years (if ever) due to our over-protective and administratively bloated medical technology approval process.
Topcon has announced its newest lens: the LENTIS Mplustoric Intraocular Lens (IOL). This lens corrects both astigmatism and presbyopia.

A review of recent comparisons of the Alcon ReSTOR +3 and the AMO Tecnis® Multifocal Advanced Technology IOLs provided by respected cataract surgeon, Dr. William Trattler.
Brief summary of newer advanced intraocular lens implants that can possibly restore and maintain clear vision even without glasses and with little risk of developing complications.
I had a patient who really wanted a ReSTOR +3 multifocal IOL but had a dense posterior subcapsular cataract (PSC). Now, a mild PSC is not usually a problem. In his case, however, the cataract had formed a fibrous plaque on the surface of the posterior capsule.
