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.
