The article discusses strategies for a successful presbyopia-correcting intraocular lens implantation. One of these strategies is having the patient try to read through three dimensional trial lenses. Another important aspect of implanting for ophthalmologists is choosing patients carefully based on their expectations. The two requirements for the implantation are accurate biometry and keratometry.
