    Retinal OCT before cataract surgery increasingly helps guide treatment choices

    Screening the retina with OCT rules out preexisting conditions that would affect the outcomes of cataract surgery and helps select candidates for premium IOLs. “Premium IOLs require a premium macula,” David M. Brown, MD , said. “The optical compromises inherent to multifocal optics make them unsuitable for patients with a less than perfect retina who need all the light and contrast sensitivity they can get.” Seen on OCT, a “premium macula” shows up as a normal inner and outer retina, a normal foveal depth and normal foveal contour.
