The article discusses the viability of add-on intraocular lens (IOL) as an alternative to surgical intervention for correcting unstable ametropia in pseudophakic eyes. At a presentation of his first clinical experience with the technology at the 2008 European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting, Detlef Holland revealed the study did not encounter intraoperative or post-operative complications. Although Holland expressed confidence in the new lens, he also warned that rotational stability was an issue.
