When the only choice of implant technology was a monofocal IOL, cataract surgery was a “one-size-fits-all” procedure, rendering preexisting pathology more or less irrelevant in terms of patients’ operative visual outcomes. Removing the cataract was paramount. Today, however, premium IOL technology works by splitting light to provide patients with a range of vision — something patients not only expect but demand.
