The article reports on a prospective study conducted by ophthalmologist Ivan Ossma that examines the safety and efficacy of dual-optic accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) as a feasible option for presbyopic correction after cataract surgery in the U.S. A series of 46 eyes were prospectively followed for a mean of more than 5 years after implantation of the dual-optic accommodating IOL. Results of the study revealed favorable findings for dual-optic accommodating lens.
