The majority of patients undergoing cataract surgery in the UK receive monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) implants, necessitating the use of near vision corrections post-operatively. Recent years have seen the development of a range of IOLs that aim to overcome the problem of presbyopia; such IOLs may be multifocal or accommodating in design.This article will explore the key IOL options for presbyopia, along with their limitations, and consider factors relevant to eyecare practitioners managing these patients post-operatively.
