Overview presentation: "Criteria of refraction in patients implanted with multifocal intraocular lenses"

The development of new lenses intraocular, increasingly sophisticated and with a custom profile, developments in the surgical technique and the increasingly early indication of cataract extraction, have transformed the purpose of this surgery. One of the primary objectives is to now provide a partial or complete functional independence after surgery. To achieve this situation every time the suitability of patients criteria are defined more precisely and minimized sources error variables through more precise biometrics and mathematical formulas that predict the behavior of a particular lens. However, this procedure is not exempt from unexpected circumstances and often patients can refer to subjective for the failure of their expectations, if not dissatisfaction associated with residual refractive defects reduced vision. The optometrist must know how to employ classical techniques of refraction and which others incorporate its clinical Protocol to deal with complex optical systems as the who defined the different types of multifocal intraocular lenses, as well as assess specifics such as the development of OCP or rotational instability with clinical judgement.
