With the necessary skill to implement these new technologies, they share their knowledge of topics ranging from IOL insertion to phaco in high risk cases. In addition, the book covers the newest option for cataract patients - Multifocal IOLs.
This text provides a well-rounded introduction to Multifocal IOLs technology, teaching the reader how to avoid problems with Multifocal IOLs use, and how to improve results and create satisfied patients.
