Accommodating iol synchrony
The American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Optometry have initiated a joint initiative to work together to develop a cooperative approach to deliver superior services to the growing number of aging and newly insured patients in the United States who are now — or will soon — be in need of professional eye-care services.
Mr Bobby Qureshi, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, is the only surgeon in the UK able to offer both these lenses and also is the most experienced having implanted the majority.
Despite the difficulties in measuring accommodation, accommodative IOLs represent the future in the attempt to successfully “cure” presbyopia.
The restoration of near vision in older individuals that have entered the presbyopic age is considered one of the major challenges in refractive surgery during the last decade.
There are three principal approaches for the achievement of good near and far vision concomitantly.
The first is the establishment of a functional multifocality in the visual system, the second is the establishment of a binocular divergence with one eye focused for far vision and the other for near (i.e., monovision), and the third is the attempt to restore normal accommodation.
