The article discusses his views on resolving optical issues with multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs). According to him, to identify the problem well, surgeons should listen closely to the patient's concerns and then determine if the patient's distance vision is good, poor or intermediate. He stresses that a logical approach is the key to resolving issues on IOLs.
