The impact of refractive error on outcomes and patient satisfaction: Data-driven pathways to target outcomes and reduce refractive surprises Presbyopia 365 Curriculum continued on page 2 Supported by Abbott Medical Optics Inc., Alcon Laboratories Inc., and AcuFocus This monograph is part of a year-long curriculum focused on treatment of presbyopia and management. Accreditation Statement This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and pol- icies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and EyeWorld. ASCRS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Educational Objectives Ophthalmologists who participate in this activity will: • Implement a lower threshold for acceptable pseudophakic refractive errors in presbyopia- corrected patients • Identify steps to mitigate refractive surprises and other key variables to increase postoper- ative success Designation Statement The American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery designates this enduring materials educational activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. ™ Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This mirrors what we have seen in previous studies of patient satisfaction with multifo- cal IOLs as well. Surgical monovision Monovision results in a loss of binocularity, depth perception, and image summation and may not be tolerated by some patients. Although –2.0 D is the practical Targeting inlay outcomes It is recommended, for example, that the small aperture corneal inlay be implanted monocularly in an eye with –0.75 D myopia (and a plano fellow eye). This re- fractive target can provide a depth of focus of up to 2.75 D and near visual acuity of J1 or better. A plano to hyperopic refraction in an eye implanted with this style of inlay will result in poorer near and distance vision (Figure 1). As visual acuity—and especially near acuity—decline, patient power. This concept now has expanded to include pseudopha- kic loss of near vision with implantation of distance-correct- ed monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs). To effectively take presbyopia correction to new levels, we need to examine how we can use the latest technology to correct a pa- tient's refractive error and restore uncorrected vision at all ranges. The options for correcting presbyopia include progressive or bifocal spectacles; multifocal contact lenses; monovision with contact lenses, LASIK, or IOLs; corneal inlays; and presbyopia- correcting IOLs. Specific visual needs and preferences, ocular anatomy, concomitant disease, and other factors must be taken into consideration in determining which approach is best suited for a given patient. When pursuing any surgical solution to presbyopia, refractive targeting must be precise. The ideal refractive target may be a slightly myopic or hyperopic one, rather than plano. Advances in technology and techniques are making new refractive outcomes possible T raditionally, ophthalmol- ogists have considered presbyopia to be an age-related alteration in the ability of the hu- man lens to change its refractive by John Vukich, MD Today's options and opportunities: What is the "new bar" for presbyopia correction?
