ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's perspective on the efficiency of the improved skills and expanded repertoire of intraocular lenses (IOL) technology for cataract surgery. This technological innovation addresses burgeoning patient expectations and help cataract surgeons meet their goals. With this, the author believes that this expanding IOL portfolio allows cataract surgeons to give their patients an aspheric IOL rather than a standard monofocal spherical lens.
