Patrick Versace ESCRS 2018 – Capsule fixation with extended depth of focus intraocular lenses
Extended depth of focus (EDOF) intraocular lenses (IOLs) offer great advantages in providing good distance vision and functional near vision, compared to monofocal lenses. In this interview at ESCRS 2018, Dr Patrick Versace reviews EDOF IOLs and the advantages of capsule-fixated IOLs. Attaching the lens to the capsule provides more accurate centration and results in better refractive outcomes. Dr Versace surmises that as clinical trial results are positive and capsule fixation increases in popularity, this could lead to it becoming the standard way to implant IOLs.
