Editor's choice

José L Güell (Instituto Microcirugía Ocular of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain) discusses the continuous development into IOLs, including EDOF and trifocal lenses, and lenses used to adjust different errors of refraction and special cases. The main limitation in the current treatment is the final placement of the lens, and current and future research into adjustable lenses and using femtosecond lasers to correct the refractive error once the lens is inside the eye. Questions: 1. What have been the most significant recent developments in the area of IOLs? (0:35) 2. Discuss the current unmet needs and/or the challenges you face when treating patients with cataracts. (1:29) 3. What developments are you most excited about in the area of cataract surgery over the next few years? (2:53) 4. Which presentations/data have interested you the most at this year’s WOC? (3:57)
Dr Jorge Alió (Professor and Chairman of Ophthalmology, University of Miguel Hernandez de Elche, Alicante, Spain) highlights the recent developments in refractive surgery and diagnostic equipment, including the SMILE and LASIK techniques. He also discusses the challenges involved in treating patients, particularly those with presbyopia, and managing patient expectations. Finally, he reviews the future developments in refractive surgery and his highlights from the WOC meeting. Questions: 1. What have been the most significant recent developments in the area of refractive surgery? (0:23) 2. What challenges do you face when treating patients? (1:48) 3. What developments are you most excited about in the area of refractive surgery over the next few years? (4:01) 4. What have you found most interesting at this year’s WOC meeting?
