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.
1. What is an ‘extended depth of focus (EDOF) intraocular lens (IOL)’ and how does it work? (0:08)
2. What are the benefits of EDOF IOLs compared with monofocal IOLs? (0:45)
3. What are the benefits of capsule fixated EDOF IOLs compared with non-capsule fixated versions? (1:17)
4. How do you predict that capsule fixation will impact the way that EDOF IOLs are used in the clinic? (2:10)
Speaker disclosure: Patrick Versace has received a travel grant from Oculentis.
