ABSTRACT
The article discusses findings of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration study which compared the use of low-add intraocular lens (IOL) with multifocal optics in patients with cataracts. Topics covered include the benefits of a full diffractive surface according to study investigator Daniel H. Chang, the results of the test performed on the patients at 6 months after the second eye surgery and the three versions of the multifocal IOL that are beneficial as concluded by Chang.
