Target Audience: Ophthalmologists Statement of Need: Accommodating intraocular lenses are the newest technology available to offer a surgical option to treat presbyopia.
Regardless of the exact mechanisms of action, it has been able to offer very good pseudophakic vision without the trade-offs in contrast sensitivity, depth perception, or binocular distance acuity that are inherent in most other presbyopic procedures.
The only limitation to these lenses is that patients may have to wear reading glasses in some situations if the lens cannot provide enough accommodation.
