Topcon has announced its newest lens: the LENTIS Mplustoric Intraocular Lens (IOL). This lens corrects both astigmatism and presbyopia.
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.
Probably the most unique approach to the problem of presbyopia-correcting IOLs is the mechanism used in the NuLens®. This lens tries to mimic the natural process that occurs in some water birds such as penguins.
This IOL platform, presented by Paul Dougherty, M.D., seemed to have only one benefit over multifocal IOLs: minimal post-operative glare. However, that benefit already exists with the Crystalens® IOL.
This lens was presented by David Chang, M.D. (UCSF) who is one of the most impressive cataract surgeons alive today. It uses a unique two-lens approach to providing a range of vision (distance and near) after cataract surgery.
