In stage 1, the lens is clear and colorless, but the lens los- es the ability to change power. As a result, most patients have When we explain this to our patients, they understand it well. Previously, patients knew their eyes changed during middle age and that cataracts may develop later, but no one explained how the lens was changing. New terminology gains momentum in ophthalmic practices A new three-stage classification system is helping cataract surgeons communicate with their colleagues and patients about the normal phases of crystalline lens change that occur with aging. When we review the stages of dysfunc- tional lens syndrome (DLS), we not only describe the way the lens changes but can correlate these changes with treatments that are most ap- propriate at each stage. 1,2 Illustrative analogy During human embryon- ic development, a piece of ectodermal tissue splits off to become the crystalline lens. Consequently, it ages simi- larly to the skin. As disulfide bonds accumulate inside the lens through all three stages, the lens loses flexibility and density increases. " With new diagnostic tools, we can show patients the color, appearance, and density of the lens and how they affect vision. " –Daniel Durrie, MD Accreditation Statement This activity has been planned and imple- mented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accredi- tation Council for Continuing Medical Edu- cation through the joint providership of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and EyeWorld. ASCRS is ac- credited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Educational Objectives Ophthalmologists who participate in this activity will: • Accurately describe the progressive diagnosis of presbyopia and the optical fundamentals of correction options, uti- lizing the appropriate current terminology of presbyopia to describe all stages of the disease state • Compare and contrast presbyopia treatment options to match solutions to patients' needs, and describe range of vision functions as related to patients' needs • Implement a lower threshold for accept- able pseudophakic refractive error levels in presbyopia-corrected patients, and identify steps to mitigate refractive sur- prises and other key variables to increase postoperative success EyeWorld January 2017
