Multifocal intraocular lenses: relative indications and contraindications for implantation.

Abstract

This article presents an extensive overview of best clinical practice pertaining to selection and use of multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) currently available in the United States. Relevant preoperative diagnostic evaluations, patient selection criteria, counseling, and managing expectations are reviewed, as well as how to approach patients with underlying ocular intricacies or challenges and best practices for intraoperative challenges during planned implantation of a multifocal IOL. Managing the unhappy multifocal IOL patient if implantation has been performed is also addressed.
